SAP NetWeaver Process Integration
System Integration – Service Orchestration – Interface Management
Historically grown, heterogeneous IT landscapes require interfaces. These are often provided as point-to-point connections or by the suboptimal use of middleware solutions. This results in interface programs that are difficult to service and cause high costs when it comes to their customization. CTI CONSULTING AG helps you build an integration platform for the central development, management and monitoring of interfaces using SAP NetWeaver PI. This makes it possible to reduce the costs per interface and allows you to evaluate new possibilities when integrating applications and business partners.
SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (PI) (the former SAP Exchange Infrastructure – SAP XI) is SAP’s middleware solution for enterprise application integration (EAI) and service-based integration. As a component of the SAP NetWeaver platform it supports the integration of applications in the application-to-application (A2A) and business-to-business (B2B) area. It provides rich support for system connections and data conversion. In addition to providing standard SAP functionality, its open architecture enables SAP software partners to, for example, offer industry-specific solutions. Furthermore, complex integration scenarios can be graphically realized and operated using BPEL-based processes (ccBPM).
In its function as an SOA middleware, SAP NetWeaver PI also plays a key role in service-oriented architectures. There are comprehensive concepts and methods for the modeling/design (repository) and runtime or operation (service bus) of enterprise services.
