Introducing SAP Integration Suite, advanced event mesh

Have you ever stopped and thought about the fact that everything seems to be happening a lot faster these days? Stopping to smell the roses might seem tricky. This is not just a reality in our private life, it’s also true in the business world. That’s why knowing what’s going on in your business environment, a.k.a “situational awareness”, is crucial, so you can react immediately to significant changes. And by the way, that’s exactly what an event is: a significant change. And events happen in real time.

SAP Integration Suite, advanced event mesh is a new SAP Business Technology Platform offering to distribute billions of daily business events in real time on a global scale.

Advanced Event Mesh takes your situational awareness to the next level – and turns you into a real time company.

Where do these real time events come from? SAP S/4HANA and SAP ECC for example.
