This Blog I will show Integration of SAP On Premise applications with Third Party Cloud applications. In my last SAP Project, I got opportunity to work with Third party Cloud applications (Procurement) Integration with SAP ECC/ BI On premise Application. Believe it or not, it was not easy integration as my Client was not at all in Cloud Platform and all Cloud things are new and looks Challenging initially. As we started the project and understand what Cloud can bring us, things start setting down. In a hybrid landscape, we not only have to factor in the implementation time and cost of complex integrations across heterogeneous systems consisting of SAP, non-SAP, and custom applications, We also have to consider the ongoing support and maintenance of these integrations. In the journey to cloud Integration, it is critical that we need prevent data inconsistencies, Security concern and information silos, and ensure they have seamless end-to-end business process integration across their SAP on premise and Third Party cloud applications. Basically there are three Broad Category Cloud Integration Strategy work in SAP Landscape. 1)Pre-packaged scenarios – A number of 3rd party providers have developed easy to integrate solutions whereby they have already developed the integration point by leveraging Cloud for Customer APIs. Examples include Twitter, Facebook, Google and Bing maps, where activating the integration only takes a few minutes by providing API keys. 2)Web service APIS – If you need an integration scenario that isn’t available in the standard delivery or through a partner solution, you can build your own scenario using the existing SAP Web services. As standard, SAP C4C provides a number of web services and Odata interfaces SAP has invested in hundreds of functionally rich prepackaged integrations called iFlows across all of our cloud solutions (see sidebar). iFlows make it faster and easier for customers to realize the value of hybrid landscapes. The prepackaged integrations are supported through upgrades and product releases by SAP.With prepackaged integrations, customers get access to SAP’s deep domain knowledge and best practices for hybrid deployments of on-premise and cloud applications. 3)SAP HANA Cloud Integrations SAP HANA Cloud Integration is a new cloud-based integration technology with process and data integration capabilities This was natively built on a multi-tenant cloud infrastructure, which supports the integration of SAP’s cloud applications to SAP, non-SAP, and custom applications (on premise to cloud and cloud to cloud). This technology helps customers rapidly realize value from the prepackaged integrations (iFlows) delivered by SAP. Customers don’t need to procure additional hardware, set up a new middleware landscape, or invest in monitoring for the underlying integration technology. On this technology, they can extend standard integration content provided by SAP and build new custom integration. Again, it’s not required to use above Integration Strategy, if you are heavy in SAP Process Integration (PI) Platform, you can still use SAP PI for your Interfacing with non-SAP or Cloud applications which was case for my last project. Several Customers having SAP Net Weaver PI can leverage it for integrating their on premise applications and cloud based applications Customers without an existing integration solution can leverage SAP HANA Cloud Integration for easy consumption of SAP’s Cloud solutions SAP aims to enable Companies or enterprise to take full advantage of the cloud and derive the intended business outcome. Through above integration technology, functionally rich prepackaged integrations (iFlows), and a rich set of open APIs, SAP PI, it can be seamless SAP and Cloud Integration without any Bottlenecks and Future Benefits.  Thanks, Regards Manish Mundra SAP Cloud Architect
