Learn more about the MuleSoft Accelerator for SAP

SAP is one of the most commonly used enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions today. However, SAP integration is a major challenge facing organizations looking to digitize business processes, for example the procure-to-pay process. 

Innovation has brought on new digital demands for organizations today. Consumers and employees alike are looking for connected experiences — no matter the interaction — this has put increasing pressure on organizations to meet the digital imperative. The truth is that most digital transformation efforts fail in today’s all-digital, work-from-anywhere environment. In reality, integration problems halt or derail 85% of digital transformations.

When organizations lack alignment between their SAP and non-SAP applications, like, they struggle to automate and optimize their business processes. The cornerstone for an agile and efficient company is a connected, agile IT landscape —  and ERP integration is critical to achieving this.
