As mentioned in the product road map for SAP Business One, we adopt the integration framework 2.0 as well as service layer on SAP HANA for the intercompany integration solution.
SAP’s own add-on for intercompany is now revamped with B1iF 2.0. Using this latest technology leads to significant simplifications and improvements in performance as well as in TCO. You can get more details on the integration framework 2.0 in this blog, and its benefits in this blog.
This change is delivered without disruption. For now, customers installing from scratch should use the new options, existing customers can optionally use these advantages and convert their configuration.
We will support you, customers and partners, in many ways and provide you with detailed information about the strategy with existing installations, expected advantages of the switch, results and experiences of the performance and procedures, tests, etc.
With B1iF 2.0 support, our intercompany integration solution is also directly following the technology strategy for SAP Business One; further improvements will be made on this basis.
We are extremely excited about this big step, this is a new chapter of a much faster and easier intercompany solution. The realization of this fundamental change required considerable efforts, but also reflects the importance of this SAP add-on and aligns the solution to the future.
I will use this blog for collecting news around this topic, linking details, and creating a comprehensive overview that can be pulled anytime.
Any comments or questions are welcome!
Update on availability: PL32 containing the changes has been released today, April 16th.
