Integration: The Critical Path to Rapid Innovation

Companies worldwide have accelerated their technology adoption plans to empower stakeholders to work in real time. Many of these organizations are however undermining their corporate goals, process efficiencies, and potential benefits through significant application sprawl across their cloud and on-premise landscapes – leading to siloed data, decision bottlenecks, and organizational friction.

For many SAP customers, the key to pulling together their heterogeneous IT landscape is using SAP Integration Suite, which contains more than 2,500 prebuilt integrations and over 3,000 APIs fully maintained and regularly updated by SAP.

SAP Integration Suite is much more than a portfolio of pre-packaged integration content that keeps SAP and third-party applications running smoothly together. SAP Integration Suite also helps accelerates the development and connectivity of ongoing process exchanges with it’s holistic set of tools – including API management, B2B libraries, event driven architecture capabilities, guided definition, documentation, and governance.

Establish true integration with prepackaged content

SAP Integration Suite, part of SAP Business Technology Platform, is available in a free tier model. This option allows organizations to experiment, learn, and test new approaches to unifying third-party and SAP solutions without additional cost and risk.

For example, line-of-business professionals can determine how to lower the cost of the integration piece of their next digital transformation project. Customers surveyed by Forrester reported an integration cost of less than 1% or 2% of total project cost, whereas it would have been nothing less than 10% previously. In addition, they improved integration development efficiency by more than 85% and achieved 80% faster time-to-value of new business applications.

Whether additional time savings and cost efficiencies or greater connectedness and stability are discovered, SAP customers can bring their integration development innovation into a productive environment without losing their work. But more importantly, they are set up to optimize their integration process quickly and drive future goal-oriented innovation with smooth, real-time data access across their organizations.

By allowing the right people access the right data at the right time, SAP customers are well-positioned to enable real-time business processes that achieve immediate business impact and customer satisfaction.

Forrester’s survey revealed that organizations taking advantage of this capability of SAP Integration Suite have realized multiple financial benefits such as higher cost savings, improved DevOps processes, and faster innovation of new business offerings. In addition, they’re creating application interfaces to exchange data electronically with customers and partners for the first time – enabling business applications and mobile apps that open up additional revenue streams.
