SAP provides available business objects for access by external systems via BAPI (Business Application Programming Interfaces) and RFC (Remote Function Call). Examples of business objects are orders, customers, or articles.
The Intershop Integration Hub acts as middleware between SAP and the Intershop Commerce Platform. As a special feature, the system not only offers all default SAP BAPI ready for use, but also makes business objects without BAPI, and even customer-specific developments immediately available for the commerce platform by means of its own SAP add-on.
This means that you can do without dedicated development projects, in which such connectors had to be manually developed, tested and individually deployed so far.
The configuration of SAP connectors in the Intershop Integration Hub is simple and risk-free, as functioning templates are available ready for use and each business object created can already be tested for functionality within the application.
