In July 2020, the SAP® Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) certified connectors from MuleSoft to integrate with SAP NetWeaver® technology platform and with SAP S/4HANA using standard integration technologies. SAP S/4HANA is the next-generation business suite, built for the SAP HANA platform, with on-premise and cloud deployment options. It is designed to act as the digital core, helping customers drive digital transformation across their entire organizations, taking advantage of the award-winning, role-based user experience of SAP Fiori®.
MuleSoft’s connectors for SAP ERP Central Component (ECC) and SAP S/4HANA
MuleSoft first introduced a connector for SAP in 2013 to help customers unlock data from SAP ECC that was accessible via BAPI and IDoc. Since then, the connector for SAP has become one of the most popular assets for our customers to connect SAP ECC with third-party systems — such as Salesforce, Workday, and ServiceNow. Our customers enjoy the agility delivered by MuleSoft to transform critical business functions — such as accounting and financials, human capital management, supplier relationship management, enterprise performance management, and many others.
Recently as SAP started driving innovations in S/4 HANA, we went to work again at MuleSoft to deliver two connectors for SAP S/4HANA that enable our customers to integrate with SAP S/4HANA via OData APIs or via SOAP APIs. These connectors for SAP S/4HANA help you implement real-time integration across your business from financial accounting, controlling, and materials management, to sales and distribution, and customer service. Our customers continue to see Anypoint Platform as a natural fit to integrate SAP S/4HANA with prominent business applications like Salesforce, Workday, and so on.
One of the most common scenarios we see is organizations transitioning from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA. Such migrations typically come with several challenges that are similar to re-implementing complex ERP installations. MuleSoft enables an API-led architecture that is the best approach for SAP S/4HANA integration with existing systems, providing agility and shielding an organization’s technology stack during their ERP migration.
