Title: Challenges of SAP Integration in Business Ecosystems

Challenges of
  1. Meeting business goals and catering to LOB
    requirements on 3rd party apps
  2. Integration with third party apps
  3. Data volumes
  4. Use of open standards
  5. Solution cost - implementation and maintenance
  6. Ease of use and access to support services
  7. 24x7 monitoring and uptime
  8. Availability of internal IT skills and resources
  9. Security

Business Operations Challenges
  • Business Operations Challenges
  • Delivery of integration solutions to meet
    strategic business goals effectively
  • Business processes that require SAP to be
    connected to multiple systems
  • Flexibility to quickly add new software
    applications and functionality without
    significant delays
  • Dependency of the SAP Application Integration
    being in place so that the ROI for the deployment
    of third-party applications can be realized
  • Costs of SAP Application Integration as
    percentage of the LOB business case

Technical Challenges
  • Architecting a SAP Application Integration for
    multiple systems that can all communicate with
    SAP API Integration using different technology
  • Ability to provide infrastructure scalability for
    SAP Application Integration into third-party
    applications, which may be deployed into
    geographically dispersed sales teams
  • Having the technical skills to design and deliver
    SAP Application Integration solutions
  • Ongoing maintenance costs - people and management
    of non-SAP third party software upgrades
  • Total Cost of Ownership

The Answer HokuApps SAP Applications Integration
  • A SAP Application Integration solution that
    eliminates the need for hardware is compelling.
    But few solutions are simply plug and play.
  • Most only provide tools to create and maintain
    custom and specialized connections are provided,
    which require in-house or contracted third-party
    development and add cost to the total cost of
    ownership and speed of deployment.
  • The technological differences between how
    organizations have traditionally deployed
    on-premise SAP Application Integration and what
    is required for cloud-centric ones can be a
    significant challenge.

  • The rapid adoption of SAP Application Integration
    with other applications by the LOB to meet
    business objectives and change business processes
    requires SAP Application Integration with
    multiple systems, each of which may communicate
    with SAP using slightly different technology.
  • There is a need therefore for companies to
    utilize a strategic SAP Application Integration
    that delivers flexibility, agility, and lower
    ownership costs. Organizations must then meet the
    need SAP Application Integration with different
    systems and maintain existing hardware with the
    same integration layer.
