What exactly is Object Event Repository?


I´ve just read a marketing article about the new SAP Object Event Repository. Precisely because it is a marking article the key-facts and functions are missing. It sounds like a reduced AII with extended database functions for Tag-tracking. Can somebody explain the benefit, technology and functions of the OER? What is the different between AII and OER?

Thank you, Bastian

    SAP OER serves as a system of record for uniquely identified objects (like EPCs). So you are right in saying it like an extended database functions for tag tracking.

    But it will not reduce the AII functionalities. AII will still remain as the data capturing application (tag read) and the repository of these reads for the tags will be maintained in the OER. So these two are two different applications.

    OER allows for tracking any id or document for which information has been sent from AII. OER will also have the capability of generating reports (business intelligence) for these data reads maintained in its repository.

    SAP has recently unveiled is PTA (Product Tracking & Authentication) feature in OER. Read at

    Since this product has not come in the market yet, we need to wait till the time of its release for documents on the product. Then we might know the exact benefits/technology on OER.
