Nicolas Fuchs – Global SMB Integration, SAP & Annemarie Kiefer – User Assistance Development Architect, SAP
In your growing business, it’s increasingly critical to have integration between your different systems and to automate data transfer between existing systems. To optimize daily work and to reduce data inconsistency, you must integrate different data sources. To enable communication between different departments, offices, and even companies its necessary to integrate your business process and functions. Integration is the name of the game and the SAP Business One Integration Framework (B1iF) is the tool that enables your success.
The integration framework for SAP Business One is a collaboration infrastructure. The multiple-purpose solution provides message-oriented middleware, a service bus, Business Process Management, and acts as a data provider for mobile solutions as well as a data consumer. Are you making the best use of this tool within your organization? In this four-hour workshop, you’ll learn from SAP experts how you can successfully use the B1iF to integrate functions, applications, and elements of your business to propel your business forward.
Starting by establishing a baseline understanding of B1iF and its functionality, the workshop will then move into showcasing a real-world integration and you’ll follow along step by step in your own practice environment. The workshop will include multiple examples of integrations and examples of additional functionality within the B1iF like workflow management, managing tasks, and keeping track of multi-step integrations.
Participants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the B1iF via SAP’s free training course on the fundamentals available through openSAP here: https://open.sap.com/courses/ifb1
