It is not uncommon for customers who have a middleware solution deployed in their landscape to periodically ask “How can we accelerate message processing and improve message throughput in our middleware solution?”. For SAP NetWeaver Process Integration customers, the answer is clear: AAE – Advanced Adapter Engine or you might say the “Answer to Accelerated Execution”.
Starting with SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.1, the Advanced Adapter Engine was introduced where “local” message processing can now take place. Why “local”? Because common mediation services such as routing and mapping are locally provided in the Advanced Adapter Engine. That translates into significant gains in performance and message throughput. As a bonus, the configuration process is much more simplified – with the new Integrated Configuration Object, all configuration is completed in one place. To many this is old news. Yet there are still many customers who are hestitant to take full advantage of AAE.
Let’s Talk About It!
At SAP TechEd 2009 come join us at the Expert Networking Lounge (Phoenix, Vienna) where we can take a look “under the hood” of PI and AAE and have an interactive discussion of why you must take advantage of the Advanced Adapter Engine.
