SAP’s Integration Strategy (Michael Ameling)

Key Messages

  1. Intelligent enterprises are integrated enterprises. They apply advanced technologies and best practices within agile, integrated business processes. That’s why a key part of SAP’s strategy is integrating end-to-end processes – including SAP, partner, and third-party solutions.
  2. Technology integration is the foundation for end-to-end business processes.
    SAP’s integration strategy is a combination of functional integrations along our customers’ most critical business processes and distinct suite qualities that characterize SAP’s integrated intelligent suite. These include end-to-end process documentation on the SAP API Business Hub, a harmonized UX across SAP applications and devices, aligned domain models as documented in the SAP Domain Model Explorer, and one central SAP Task Center for a streamlined and simplified approval process across applications.
    All developments are based on one unifying technology platform: the SAP Business Technology Platform. It empowers integration, extension, and data-to-value from all SAP and third-party application and data assets, while ensuring long-term business success through agility, value-creation, and continual innovation.
  3. End-to-end business processes deliver unmatched business value. SAP’s integration approach goes far beyond technical integration of applications: Holistic integration of business processes accelerates the speed of innovation, lowers the efforts for integration, shortens time to value, and allows for real-time insight. Recent customer stories, for instance by Aramco Europe and Orica, give proof of it.
