What is SAP Cloud Integration?
SAP® Cloud Integration (formerly CPI / HCI) is a cloud-based middleware from SAP®. It is also known as "Integration Platform as a Service" (iPaaS). SAP® Cloud Integration enables the integration of cloud and on-premise solutions, both from SAP® and non-SAP® vendors.
SAP® Cloud Integration creates the basis for connecting SAP® ECC or SAP S/4HANA® to eCommerce solutions from Shopware, Magento, OXID eSales or plentymarkets.
The platform makes it possible to integrate open file formats, web standards and systems into SAP® solutions. SAP® Cloud Integration supports a wide variety of APIs such as the Open Data Protocol (OData), Representational State Transfer (REST), Remote Function Call (RFC) or Web Services. The platform integrates proprietary interfaces such as Intermediate Document (IDoc), Application Link Enabling (ALE) or the Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI). Data is exchanged in real time. Data integration with SAP® Cloud Integration sustainably improves the efficiency of heterogeneous IT landscapes and the quality of processes.
The use of SAP® Cloud Integration is particularly suitable for companies that have a historically grown IT landscape. By connecting hybrid applications on a data hub, Cloud Integration supports the gradual migration of IT systems to cloud operation.
SAP relies on the cloud
The future of IT infrastructures lies in the cloud. SAP® is also convinced of this. With SAP® Cloud Integration, SAP® offers a cloud-based integration platform (Cloud Integration) that maps connection scenarios between different system landscapes on-premise and in the cloud.
This enables companies to meet two major IT requirements of the coming years: the ever-improving networking of their IT systems and the gradual switch to software operation in the cloud.
"SAP® Cloud Platform is in the center:
Everything what we do now;
how we connect applications,
how we connect other applications,
how we present services we have in the system for the use in applications or in Leonardo or outside SAP® will go through the SAP® Cloud Platform."
Prof. Dr. Hasso Plattner
Chairman of the Supervisory Board, SAP®
SAP® Cloud Platform corresponds to SAP® Business Technology Platform
The Cloud Pyramid: 3 service levels of cloud computing
Software as a Service (SaaS) refers to the highest level of service: application software operated entirely in the cloud that companies use for their own purposes.
Platform as a Service (PaaS) builds on the concept of IaaS. A concrete runtime or development environment is provided in the cloud, such as an operating system, a database system, and middleware. This includes SAP® Cloud Integration.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) refers to pure IT infrastructure that is offered as a service, such as servers, virtual machines, storage, or SAP HANA®.
