Introduction to Interface for SAP ERP
Best Practices, Encapsulated
While no two SAP® installations are alike, the free Quick Start Templates incorporate best-practice workflows for many common use cases like downloading production orders and uploading production confirmations. Start with a pre-built template and customize it for your own SAP® landscape.
Interface for SAP ERP leverages SAP®’s RFC protocol to provide high-performance connectivity to SAP® without additional middleware. Synchronous (sRFC), transactional (tRFC), and queued (qRFC) calling methods are all supported, giving you control over synchronous or asynchronous processing, avoiding duplicate messages and ensuring that messages are processed in the correct order.
Interface for SAP ERP Module optimizes communications between Ignition® and SAP®, utilizing techniques like throttling and connection pooling to help avoid network and throughput bottlenecks.
Certified by SAP® (Pending)
Interface for SAP ERP is being certified by SAP® Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) to ensure compliance with SAP®. This way, you can be assured that our module has excellent performance and is ready for large-scale, production-ready workloads, reliably handling multiple threads and large quantities of data.
Built-in support for BAPIs, RFMs, and schemas reduces the learning curve and increases reliability. This increases scalability, simplifies implementation, and reduces the need for high-skill level SAP® experts on your team. Support for queues and transactions offers greater efficiency, freeing up resources for both your SAP® and Ignition® Servers. What’s more, it uses the Business Connector to control the sequence and data mapping of communications between SAP® and other interfaces such as REST and SOAP web services, greatly reducing implementation time and maintenance costs.
Built on Ignition®
The Interface for SAP ERP module installs on Ignition®, the powerful, award-winning, HMI, SCADA, and industrial software platform from Inductive Automation. This module also works seamlessly with our MES Suite, built to help your enterprise align with ISA-95 model standards for integrating enterprise and control systems.
