Digital transformation is driving new business models, new ways of working, and new ways of collaborating and communicating with customers and partners. Full end-to-end integration among applications, processes, and people, as well as physical assets such as sensors or machines, is critical for the success of any business.
Moving to the cloud brings the advantages of the cloud to ERP software, with a suite of solutions that paves the way to digital, integrated processes across your business. However, like all ERP solutions, SAP S/4HANA Cloud will also have to be integrated with many other solutions within your system landscape. In this course, we’ll present what SAP S/4HANA Cloud offers to make this integration much easier than anything you’ve ever experienced in the past. You’ll learn how you can get started with your integrations, which APIs are available, and you’ll get an insight into the integration lifecycle.
In the first week, we’ll describe the value proposition of an integrated Intelligent Enterprise suite. We’ll provide you with best practices for integration, and you’ll learn how to use the SAP Activate methodology in an integration project. In the second week, you’ll learn about various types of APIs, how to consume them, and how to read data from and write data to SAP S/4HANA Cloud. In the third and final week, you’ll familiarize yourself with the key enablers of a successful integration lifecycle such as integration extensibility, security, and monitoring.
