About the session – Enterprise Integration patterns for SAP PI (Process Integration)
This session will help you understand the concept of patterns and their usage in SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP NetWeaver PI) 7.1. A pattern describes a solution to a specific design problem. Like a template, the approach to solving the problem can be used again and again. The approach that constitutes a pattern is based on best practices and has already been proofed in a real-life implementation. Starting from a problem to solution and use case description, we will demonstrate how a pattern is implemented in practice covering design-time, configuration-time, and finally runtime. Twelve common patterns address different levels of complexity (e.g. filtering, mapping, routing, or enrichment of messages). Approaches for canonical data models or interactions of global and local SAP NetWeaver PI instances are topics for advanced patterns. The foundation in every SAP NetWeaver PI projects builds the software component strategy. Let’s see what the process-oriented component strategy offers.
