SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration Roadmap available !
The SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration Solution Management and Product Management team would like to let our Process Orchestration community know that the Solution Roadmap for SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration is now available on Service Marketplace.
In addition, you should be able to find more detailed technical Product Roadmap specifics for NetWeaver Business Process Management, NetWeaver Business Rules Management and NetWeaver Process Integration as well. Both roadmaps can be found on the Database & Technology section.
This information can be accessed by SAP employees, customers and partners granted they have access to Service Marketplace.
We are very excited to share these roadmaps publicly with our community to increase transparency. This not only allows communication where the solution is going forward but it would also allow current solution users to better align and plan forward.
Do not hesitate to contact us with questions if needed.
Thanks for this info.
One of the challenges we are having is to understand when to advice a customer to start adopting the SAP PRO suite who already have SAP PI in their landscape.
I think the info that is missing is around;
1. Until when is SAP PI support in place?
2. Is it clear from SAP that all new investments are around the SAP PRO suite than SAP PI?
First off, sorry for the delay in answering these questions. Generally speaking, maintstream support for existing released versions can be found on Service Market Place and there are several years ahead still even for older versions. So hopefully this addresses the first question.
As for the second question, the general move is in terms of a holistic and consolidated middleware stack that contains ESB, BPM and Rules capabilities with a wide range of deployment options (including the dual stack deployment alternative). In this context, each contained solution providing capabilities for the ESB, BPM and Rules will continue to evolve to address usability and general customer feedback as well as evolve per market requirements. We do not want to think of segmented solutions PI, BPM or BRM alone, but as a cohesive platform offering middleware services. If you want to use these separately you will be able to do so, and if you need to use them together then this will also be an option (this is not something we could do before).
Hopefully this answers your questions. Thanks for your continuous dialogue.
