HONICO IntegrationMan, iMan WebConnect represents a virtual standard for the integration between Magento and SAP. The link to the systems is made based on the standard WebService interfaces of Magento as well as on the technical communication paths provided by SAP.
SAP is the de-facto standard for ERP software in large companies and enterprises. The growing demand for e-commerce solutions - especially in B2B - makes the integration into Magento indispensable. Out of the box, neither the Magento Enterprise Edition (EE) nor the Magento Community Edition (CE) provide SAP integration.
Magento for SAP works with the following SAP versions:
- SAP ERP R3
- SAP all in one
- SAP by design (SAP cloud)
With the Magento DE Edition which is certified by Trusted Shops and the SAP-certified Magento integration, we offer the first solution where both components - shop/e-commerce and SAP integration - are certified.
Features of Magento for SAP:
- Bi-directional data transfer
- Delta-load functionality for improved performance
- Handling of errors and alerts in case of problems
- Integration of other systems, e.g. PIM, payment, etc.
Technical basis of Magento for SAP
The basis for the SAP adaptor for Magento and the communication between SAP and the shop is the shop's default SOAP interface. Connection to the SAP systems is made via the standard Java Connectors (JCo) of SAP. If necessary, access to the SAP systems can be fine-tuned using ready-made functional blocks which are managed in a separate SAP-partner namespace.
The integration-processes are triggered by events or at certain times. Depending on the process, standard functional blocks (BAPIS) of SAP are addressed or IDocs are transmitted or received. During the process, data are checked, mapped, and converted. Processes are executed safely via internal transaction-handling. Because the entire configuration and management takes place in a graphical user interface, all changes and modifications can be done with little effort.
The availability of all systems involved is monitored by system processes. These processes also save data in case of system failures and send error messages.
The intelligent concept of iMan WebConnect allows for quick implementation of projects. Efforts are transparent and can be economically calculated.
