PI for integration of non-SAP to non-SAP

Hello experts,

Does anyone have experience with PI for integration of non-SAP to non-SAP systems? Are there performance issues or issues with scalability? Are there examples of companies that have been successful with non-SAP to non-SAP using PI?

I realize that non-SAP to non-SAP is easily accomplished. I am certain that we can handle the development. However, many of our colleagues make statements such as:

"PI is good for SAP to SAP or for SAP to non-SAP, but for non-SAP to non-SAP use something else."

These same people often recommend Websphere MQ.

After much searching, I also see that a similar question has been asked here before in 2006.

XI - Can it handle non-SAP to non-SAP systems integration?

I am hoping that over the past 4 yearsI, some of you will have new experience in this area.

Best Regards,

    PI has grown over the couple or years and hence the maturity levels have risen.

    I know clients who have introduced PI for their landscape where in they use it for non sap to non sap integration on a major scale.

    But having said that, it is beneficial to have PI in a landscape where finally at the end state you will find a SAP system 😊

      Hi Thomas,

      as mentioned by Vijay here, PI has grown up recent days and customers are started using PI for NON-SAP to NON SAP integration as well. We do have very critical NON SAP integrations running in SAP PI. platform and I didn't come across any major issues with the performance. It always depends on each interfcae design and hardware capacity.
