interface between D&B and SAP using XI

We need to set up following interfaces between

- SAP CRM and Dun and Bradsteet through XI 3.0

- SAP SRM and Dun and Bradsteet through XI 3.0

Could anyone give me any feedback on such a kind of interface ?

    hi Laurent,

    ask the Dun and Bradstreet

    how can they exchange message

    (flat file, xml file, soap, jdbc, http or something else)

    then check if xi has an adapter of this kind

    and you're done with the first part

    Regards,

    michal

    Hi,

    D&B offers their D&B Toolkit as AML services over HTTPS. (Not SOAP). With those services you can search for DUNS numbers, order reports etc.

    In our case we use SAP FSCM and the integrated outbound interface to external credit agencies to call Xi. In Xi we use a XSLT mapping to convert the request to the D&B toolkit schema and use the HTTP adapter to call D&B. The response is then mapped back to the SAP FSCM interface format and updates the business partner.

    You don't say anything on what kind of D&B data you want to request or what you want to do with it (reports, update BPs etc) therefore it is kind of hard give any further advice.
