What is SAP Process Integration & Orchestration?
SAP Process Integration (PI) and the latest versions known as SAP Process Orchestration (PO) are the application integration middleware provided by SAP. SAP PI (PO) is the component (middleware) of SAP Netweaver group of products that facilitates system integration between SAP and other external systems.
The very first version of SAP integration application was called XI (Exchange Infrastructure).
The next major change to the system was the introduction of SAP Process Integration (PI), and the latest version is Process Orchestration (PO).
Main Functions of SAP PI Are,
- Connecting systems using communication protocols such as sFTP, AS2, SOAP, HTTP, etc.
- Route messages between systems. PI/PO can route messages from one sender system to one or more receiver systems based on business process rules or technical routing rules.
- Transform or map message formats between sender and target systems.
- Provide a run-time environment for exchanging messages between systems and interface monitoring capabilities.
- Execute integration workflows with a series of steps, such as Purchase Order process integration with approval actions.
Support everything from simple workflows to complex practices by developing custom process applications.
