Dear All,

I read many articles on internet about HCI( Hana Cloud Integration) which contains all PI capabilities and integrate cloud to on premises, cloud to cloud,....etc

And PI is also option to integrate Cloud to on premises , cloud to cloud.

But I am still confusing on that, PI on-premises server is possible to integrate cloud to cloud  and cloud to On-premises? if possible how?

Thanks & Regards,

    Any PI (in cloud or on-premise) system can integrate cloud to cloud and cloud to on-premise. i.e.,

    cloud (web-service) to cloud (web-service) and

    cloud (web-service) to on-premise (web-service, File, email, JDBC.....).

    Usually cloud based applications expose some API...web-services (http+SOAP or http+REST).

    • Sateesh,

      This is my understanding.

      Why HCI?

      1. Rent integration (hardware and software). i.e., advantages of cloud software.

      2. Out of the box development content like mapping, SI, DT. No development effort.

      3. More. Link1, Link2

      How to connect to HCI?


      How to connect to other cloud based application. E.g. Salesforce, Ariba on-demand.

      These applications give details, how use there cloud software using SaaS API, in documentation. We can connect to Ariba on-demand using web-services (http+SOAP).
