Integration developers need to design integration flows in a robust fashion in order to safeguard their company's mission-critical business processes.

An integration flow is enterprise grade when it's designed in such a way that it's qualified to implement parts of the mission-critical processes of an enterprise. A poorly designed integration flow can lead to errors. In the worst case scenario the integration flow breaks, resulting in a service disruption for the business process. It is the developer’s responsibility to design an integration flow in such a way that the overall availability of the business process isn't impaired.

To fulfill this requirement, developers need to embrace certain characteristics constituting an enterprise-grade integration flow.The design guidelines provide content on these characteristics that help to build enterprise-grade integration flows in SAP Cloud Platform Integration. This was rolled out to customers earlier this year as given in this blog and updated recently here also.

In our upcoming webinar session on August 26th we provide an Introduction to Integration Flow Design Guidelines to explain the concepts behind guidelines spread across categories such as resource management, error handling, and security. For each design guideline, one or more reference integration flows are documented. You can access the integration flows from SAP API Business Hub as explained in the session.

Thanks and Regards,

Robert Kelly - Integration Lead for SAP Enterprise Support
