The SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP NetWeaver PI) offering is one of the building blocks of SAP’s enterprise service-oriented architecture (enterprise SOA) technology and a key component of the integration environment provided by the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. SAP NetWeaver PI facilitates the integration of systems within a company and service enablement of legacy applications and enables communication with external business partners.
Continuing the success story that began with the release of the SAP NetWeaver Exchange Infrastructure component some years ago, the new release of SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.1 is available as of July 25 in un-restricted shipment. Used for middleware consolidation in customer landscapes, the release mainly leverages functionality for service enablement and service and process orchestration. Following a successful ramp-up, 40 customers now work actively with the new product release and five customers have gone live with it. In addition, five further customers have also successfully finished their proof-of-concept projects with SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1. Customers are clearly making SAP NetWeaver Process Integration the cornerstone of their enterprise SOA strategy.
Overall, customers are very satisfied with the new functionality offered with SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1. For an example, listen to the interview with Gerald Eder from Swiss Post (part I), a customer that went live with SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1 in only three weeks.
This release of SAP NetWeaver Process Integration brings to market such key enterprise SOA foundation technology as Enterprise Services Repository and the Services Registry. It also offers support for key Web services standards and significant performance improvements. For more details of SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.1, see the SOA Middleware page on SDN.
