Re: Bi-Directional Point-2-Point Integration of S/4 HANA Cloud to Non-SAP Business Services

Hi Experts,

Our existing integration scenario is a Point-2-Point bi-directional data exchange between on-premise SAP ECC and bespoke SOAP services; the scenario has been stable for years and was implemented with SAP.Net Connectors. My team is currently involved in R&D to implement the same scenarios between SAP S/4 HANA Cloud offering and the same business services (still running on-premise). We are at the moment experimenting with SAP Cloud Connector; SAP HCI is not an option right now (may be the last resort).

Kindly provide us the strategy, information, demos, and toolsets that have equivalent functionalities of SAP.Net for the cloud landscape.

Hi Bakau

The Cloud Connector connects specifically from on-premise to SAP Cloud Platform, so if HCI is not in play, the Cloud Connector is not an option.

I would look into the APIs provided by S/4HANA Cloud. In order to do that, go to the API Business Hub and navigate to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud API package.

You can implement your scenario as a stand-alone application in whatever language that suits you, or go with a lightweight integration framework such as Apache Camel (which is open source and free).

Morten

Hi Morten,

Thanks for your response; really appreciate.

We will explore the APIs as suggested; our solution will surely be bespoke with our proprietary EIS to facilitate the mediation.

As a heads-up: Can we call these APIs directly (via ODATA / REST protocol) to create the business objects without going through the SCP connectivity artifacts (e.g. destinations, cloud connectors)? Our scenario is such that we want to be able to call the S/4 HANA APIs from our On-Premise business systems APIs to create business objects in S/4 HANA like we do with remote calls of BAPI in SAP ECC to create FI or MM documents.

Really appreciate your time.

Kind Regards

Hi Bakau

Yes, you can call them directly, absolutely.

Morten
