Integrate It! Integration of SAP ATTP with IoSC TraceLink through SAP PO
Supply chains have always been business-critical but often operate behind the scenes.
But a new digital transformation  replace legacy connectivity technologies of electronic data interchange (EDI) with the Internet of Supply Chains (IoSC) 
Internet of Supply Chains (IoSC) links systems, processes, and people into a collective information network for intelligent business execution.
In the pharma industry, a magic quadrant is as follows:
First: SAP Information Collaboration Hub for Life Sciences 
SAP Information Collaboration Hub for Life Sciences is a cloud-based network solution that allows pharmaceutical partners to exchange drug serialization information securely and easily.
But a lot of SAP ATTP customers have a complicated landscape with interaction with many IoSC
For example: AmerisourceBergen (screenshot from ) connected to SAP ICH and Mediledger simultaneously.
Second: Tracelink 
Tracelink’s Life Sciences Cloud platform ensures compliance throughout the global life sciences supply network. TraceLink is a key part of the global pharmaceutical supply chain, with more than 440 pharmaceutical manufacturers, wholesale distributors, hospitals, and pharmacies using the company’s SaaS solutions.
Third: Mediledger 
The MediLedger Network is the industry network 2.0 for the life sciences and healthcare industries, that runs solutions for real-time alignment, rule enforcement, and settlement of transactions directly between trading partners.
Fourth: Movilitas Cloud 
Movilitas.Cloud is a cloud-based platform hosting a group of tailor-made applications to enable companies to meet manufacturing, serialization, and reporting requirements.
We start a cycle of blog-posts about the integration SAP ATTP with Tracelink through SAP PO.
A pharmaceutical company (MAH)* places an order to CMO**.
*MAH – Marketing Authorization Holder
**CMO—Contract Manufacturing Organization. A company providing manufacturing, and sometimes packaging, services for one or more companies based on contracts or service agreements. Also referred to as a Contract Packaging Organization (CPO) or Third Party Manufacturer (TPM).
Business Step 1
MAH requests serial numbers with crypto-codes from government authorities.
Business Step 2
MAH creates a production order with GTIN, quantity, and a bundle with serial numbers and cryptocodes and sends it to CMO via IoSC TraceLink.
Business Step 3
CMO manufacture products and send information about labeling and aggregation via IoSC TraceLink to MAH

SAP PO  – IoSC TraceLink
Architecture in some details.
Technical Step 1.
SAP PO(Process Orchestration) is an enterprise integration platform that provides seamless integration between SAP (SAP ATTP in our case and non-SAP applications (TraceLink in our case)
AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) protocol 
To work with both protocols in SAP PO, Add-on installation is required , 
For example: SFTP settings from SAP PO. Screenshot
Technical Step 2.
For example: TraceLink supported B2B Connections & File Formats. Screenshot from 
Additional custom development in SAP ATTP is also needed
For example universal tool for creating events (Object Event, Aggregation Event) from EPCIS.
