XML to PI to ERP? Best Practices


Hello everyone,

I’m beginning to research for a client project that requires conversion of an XML file to something compatible with SAP ERP. My thought is we would use PI to convert the XML to IDoc and then pass it on to the ERP system. Am I on the right track here?

There is also a requirement to convert documents from the ERP system into flat files for use in legacy systems at this client location. Is PI also the best choice for this scenario?

This would be a brand new PI system. I guess I am looking for recommendations on what technologies and components inside PI are the recommended route for doing these types of conversions.

Sorry I’m a total PI newbie, I deal mostly with the Server/Basis side of SAP.
