Why SOA references? The main goal of this session is to provide you with real life examples about how customers can benefit from using SAP’s SOA infrastructure. The focus of my lecture will be on customer scenarios based on SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (PI) 7.1, some of them with SAP enhancement package 1 (EHP 1) for SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1, but I also have a couple of examples of scenarios with EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment (CE) 7.1.
Because SOA is a methodology and not a tool that you just can buy from SAP, I will start my lecture with concrete and easy to understand examples about how simple it is to apply SOA principles by using SAP NetWeaver PI or SAP NetWeaver CE. In the beginning of my lecture I will also give you a brief introduction into EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver PI as well as SAP NetWeaver CE. The main part of my lecture are of course the real customer scenarios in the context of SOA. The presented customers stories will be from the following industries:
- Measurement Instruments, Process Industry Automation
- Chemicals, Energy, Real Estate
- High Tech
- Materials Technology
- Oil and Gas
But customers from other industries can also benefit from this lecture by learning how these customers apply SOA principles and leverage the advantages. In my lecture I’ll show the customer’s objectives, scenarios, challenges, and benefits from using SAP’s SOA infrastructure. Furthermore, I will also present the first feedback from the ramp-up projects of EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1.
I am looking forward to meet you at TechEd!
