My adventure in learning CPI: Part 1 | All about SAP Cloud.

Hello Everyone,
I am Sookriti. In this blog series, I shall be sharing my experience, my journey, my adventure as a CPI Consultant.


I shall be sharing my story in Parts. So, it’s more like, I will be sharing as I am exploring the world of Cloud.
Hence, please be patient for, there will be a little wait-time between 2 parts.
So, let’s get started.

 

First thing first, what is Cloud Computing in SAP?

Answer: SAP being a cloud company, driven by SAP HANA in-memory technology, they have over 110 million cloud subscribers and 41 state-of-the-art-data centers around the world.

SAP Provides 3 types of Services:
a| SaaS: Software as a Service
b| PaaS: Platform as a Service
c| IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service.

Now, this Cloud Computing is nothing but a solution to problems such as data accessibility, application, and service over the internet. Cloud eliminated the expenses and need for hardware. You shall know that globally, over 90% of the businesses are already using cloud technology/ cloud solutions.

 

Benefits?

Elasticity + Affordability + Availability + Simplicity + Secure

 

Key Characteristics?

On-demand self-service, Broad network access, Multi-tenant model, Rapid elasticity/ scalability, and many more.

 

As I mentioned previously, there are 3 Cloud Service Models i.e. SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS, the below are the Service Components and the Offerings:

SaaS (Applications+Data+Runtime+Middleware+O/S+Virtualization+Servers+Storage+Networking), for e.g. SAP Cloud for Customer, ByDesign, SuccessFactors, Ariba Fieldglas, Concur, etc.

PaaS (Runtime+Middleware+O/S+Virtualization+Servers+Storage+Networking), for e.g. SAP Cloud Platform Integration i.e. CPI, which was HANA Cloud Platform i.e. HPI which again was PI before that.

IaaS(Virtualization+Servers+Storage+Networking), for e.g. SAP HANA Infrastructure i.e. SAP/HEC or AWS i.e. Amazon Webs Service).

That’s it for now. Shall continue in the next blog.

      Hi AHMAD RAJA,

      CPI and HCI are the same things.

      SAP HCP and SAP CP are the same. It is just re-branding.

      Hi Sookriti,

      Good blog to understand from scratch. Can you please revisit your explanation for PAAS? Its mentioned as HPI but its universally known as HCI(Hana Cloud Integration)not HPI. Also HCI was not previously from PI. HCI and PI are two different integration tools and not replacement  for one another eventhough it may look like same.

       

      Keep writing.
