SAP Cloud Platform Integration – Test and learn more about SAP’s cloud based integration solution

Introduction

Would you like to get first hands-on experience with SAP’s on demand integration solution called SAP Cloud Platform Integration (f.k.a HCI)? If yes, please join our trial program to explore the capabilities and benefits of cloud integration by yourself!

What is SAP Cloud Platform Integration?

SAP Cloud Platform Integration(in short referred as cloud integration) is a cloud-based integration platform hosted on SAP Cloud Platform for integrating cloud applications with other cloud and on-premise solutions. The solution supports both process and data integration needs. Since cloud integration is offered as a service, the on demand solution provides highest level of security features such as content encryption and signing, certificate based authentication, encrypted data storage, data isolation at runtime as well as persistency. Furthermore cloud integration provides capabilities such as runtime for processing, data transformation, routing of messages, and diverse connectivity options. As user interface to cloud integration there is a web UI available to enable browse and discover standard integration content delivered by SAP, and also Eclipse based tools to create and modify integration artifacts, such integration flows, mappings, connectivity and security settings.

More information about cloud integration can be found at

What do I need to do to get access to SAP Cloud Platform Integration Trial and where do I find further information?

If you would like to try out SAP Cloud Platform Integration on Cloud Foundry, kindly follow the blog about SAP Cloud Platform Integration is Now Available on Cloud Foundry (CF) Environment.

As part of the trial offering you can create simple integration scenarios running on top of SAP Cloud Platform Integration. A trial system offers you the great opportunity to explore SAP Cloud Platform Integration, to develop and run your first cloud based integration scenarios, and you also get an insight into SAP’s on demand integration offering.

Please try out our SAP Cloud Platform Integration on Cloud Foundry environment and let us know your comments and feedback!

      Hi Udo,

       

      Great stuff. When can we expect the general release and how will it be priced?

       

      Finally, can we use HCI to host content for multiple customers, or do we require one instance for each customer individually?

      Hi Gavin,

       

      thank you very much for your interest into our SAP HCI trial program. Yes, SAP HCI is already in general availability since beginning of 2013. The pricing of SAP HCI is based on a monthly subscription fee. If you would like to learn more about the available editions for SAP HCI, kindly view the blog at http://scn.sap.com/community/hana-in-memory/blog/2014/09/25/sap-hana-cloud-integration-standard-and-professional-editions. And yes, you can use one SAP HCI tenant to create and modify content for multiple customers. The customers themselves would get different tenants to which they get access individually, so the customers would individually deploy the integration content on their own tenants.

       

      I hope this info helps. Kindly let us know if you have any other questions around SAP HCI.

       

      Best regards, Udo

      Hi Udo,
      thanks for sharing this blog.
      I've heard many interested parties asking about the available integration content
      in order to see which business processes & products are already in the list.

      Are all the SAP integration packages listed+updated under
      https://cloudintegration.hana.ondemand.com/ ?

       

      On help.sap.com and service.sap.com, I did not yet find a detailed list.

      Thank you and kind regards

      Hi Andreas,

       

      yes, definitely, the integration content is one of the key differentiatiors of SAP HCI. Actually, you can find more information about the available integration content for SAP HCI, besides the public content catalog at https://cloudintegration.hana.ondemand.com/ for example also on the SAP Service Marketplace at https://websmp201.sap-ag.de/~form/handler?_APP=00200682500000002672&_EVENT=DISPLAY&_SCENARIO=&_HIER_KEY=501100035870000020415&.  At http://help-sap.com/clouditegration you can find the user documentation, like developers guide, for SAP HCI.

       

      I hope this information helps. Kindly let me know if you have any other questions around SAP HCI.

      Hi Udo,

      I have watched your webinar on SAP HCI overview with Sindhu Gangadharan - which was very informative.

      I have a question and hoping you could advice on it.

       

      Can SAP HCI (HANA Cloud Integration)be used for integrating on-premise SAP ERP and Non-SAP ERP with the new SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service Cloud Edition?


      If so, is there a pre-packaged iFlow for SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service Edition?


      I believe it can be used but need your advice on the recommendation!

       

      Thanks in Advance!
