SAP Systems Integration Master Thesis


Hi dear experts,

I have written my master thesis about SAP systems integration in one of the biggest energy companies in Europe. The company is called Vattenfall and owned by Swedish government. Since the size of the company is huge, so that the data size which will be transferred within and outside of the company is also huge. Thats why systems integration plays a very crucial role for Vattenfallu2019s IT concerns. The company is very much SAP centric and the SAP systems are increasing in number and size. This increasing trend intensifies the need for SAP systems integration and an integration platform, which is the most plug and play integration engine for SAP systems, could be of benefit. Thatu2019s why I made a qualitative study to evaluate SAP NetWeaver PI to help Vattenfall Nordic to decide whether it could be used as main integration platform at Vattenfall Nordic instead of BizTalk.

SAP PI is coming! I think the product will be used more commonly once SAP solves the core problems. For example SAP PI is a dual stack product and complex to configure, use and manage. The product is very much based on hub and spoke, centralized architecture. But I think it must be (will be) 100% java based, distributed product. Also SAP NetWeaver BPM and PI are emerging more and more. These are all good things for the future of the product. As I mentioned before, the product is coming!

I do not want to write all of my finding again but you can download my master thesis from here: [SAP Systems Integration Master Thesis Final Report|]. I look forward to hearing from you.
