A lot of SAP customers rely on SAP Process Orchestration (PO) for their custom process applications and integration scenarios which over many years has evolved to a very stable and feature rich integration solution. At the same time, Integration platforms are becoming more strategic for businesses coping with increasingly heterogeneous and hybrid IT landscapes.

SAP Integration Suite meets these requirements and is SAP's recommended solution for any enterprise-wide integrations for both SAP and non-SAP Integrations. SAP Integration Suite is key technology in SAP BTP that can help you integrate your business processes with distributed and hybrid landscapes to support your end-to-end process automation, innovation and business transformation initiatives.

Because of this changing business requirements and IT Strategy, and keeping in mind the extended maintenance for SAP PO ends by 2030, there is a growing need of customers looking to smoothly transition from SAP Process Orchestration to SAP Integration Suite.

Additionally, customers are also seeking to transition from their BTP Neo environment to a modern multi-cloud environment, that is SAP Integration Suite.

What are the challenges customers can face with such transition projects?

  • How to accelerate the transition to SAP Integration Suite?

  • Will there be any business impact on the Integration scenarios & will they continue to work during and post-transition of Interfaces to SAP Integration Suite?

  • How can I test end-to-end? What Automation test tools can I use that are supported by SAP PO and SAP Integration Suite?

  • There are interconnected third party systems in the landscape. Involving resources from third party for testing will incur huge project cost. How can I eliminate this dependency?

In such transition projects typically testing is a big block where customers would need high amount of resources and business experts to deliver and ensure safe and smooth movement of the interfaces.
