    Hi Piyush,

    1. You can have adapter less communication between PI and ECC using Enterprise services using XI protocol.

    2. Enterprise service is developed with top-down approach. You define the fields first and then implement backend logic later. It more maintainable. You can call your function modules in proxy.

    3. Enterprise services can be called using WS-RM protocol also.

    Hi,

    Most important advantage of ES over RFC is harmonization and open standard compliance (SOAP, WSDL, XML etc). While RFC is perfect if used only close connected SAP infrastructure but it is not open for consumption with cross-system usage.

    Harmonization: while fileds in RFC will only make sense if you have worked in ABAP otherwise they are like greek to you (or other application developers), with ES data fields are harmonized and they are more acceptable across s/w vendor base and developers.

    Standards: ES is like any other webservice is based on standards which is open for adoption and supported by almost all modern programming language. So everyone speak the same language.
