PI instead of a broker tool



I got a new proposal. The SAP systems are connected to SAP PI. The SAP PI is connected to a broker tool which in turn is connected to different customers which sends manufacturing data. They asked me whether PI can substitute the broker tool. The use of the broker tool is to check the connected customers if manufacturing data is ready and if it is ready, pull it to PI.

Can PI replace the brokering tool and do the search function in the connected customers? That's what I need to answer. Is the information enough to answer the question? Do I ask them further questions and if so what are the inputs that I need to ask?

I think PI can connect to almost all the systems, so I guess from connection perspective, PI can integrate any system with it

How do I go about this?
