Are you ready for SAPPHIRE NOW?!

SAP Middleware experts are sure ready to meet you and show you the latest Middleware innovations.

What is SAP Middleware today? We all know that in today’s world of proliferating systems and demand for people-centric computing, businesses need to achieve agility along multiple dimensions. Whether it is becoming a real-time business, applying context to big data, or better process orchestration – SAP’s Middleware solutions can be leveraged - on-premise, in the cloud, with Big Data, Mobility and in-Memory capabilities. Today, SAP Middleware is the comprehensive portfolio of SAP technology components that provide services and flexibility (system, process and people agility) to business applications (SAP and non-SAP). The newest SAP Middleware solution called Intelligent Business Operations helps take control of big processes via its integrated process modeling, orchestration, live monitoring and analysis – all on a single platform and a standard modeling language - BPMN.

If you are in Orlando, Florida from June 3-5 you sure have used the agenda builder, however such a great number and variety of sessions may be overwhelming. Therefore we have prepared for you a snapshot of what’s hot in the Middleware area with business process management, integration and orchestration, as well as intelligent business operations with SAP.

Lennox Experiences Using SAP HANA Cloud Integration for Integration Cloud for Sales with SAP CRM
This session shares Lennox’s experiences and recommendations for integrating SAP Cloud for Sales with SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM). This session will provide an overview of the entire implementation with a focus on the integration. Presenters will share the overview of the technical infrastructure, integration technology, blueprinting and solution design, and timelines along with what went well and what we would recommend when using SAP HANA Cloud Integration.
Thursday - 01:00 p.m. - 02:00 p.m., S310E: S. Concourse, L3.

Migration from SAP Process Integration 7.11 to 7.31 Stand-Alone Java at HD Supply
HD Supply has implemented SAP Process Integration 7.31 Advanced Adapter Engine Extended (AEX) in parallel with the existing 7.11 dual-stack environments. All new interfaces are being developed on 7.31 and they are in the process of migrating all existing interfaces. This presentation will describe why HD Supply chose to do a migration instead of a technical upgrade, what architecture they chose to implement, the process they went though, and the lessons learned on the way. In addition, presenters will discuss the benefits of their Java only PI 7.3 implementation including: Critical interface isolation, performance improvement, and central monitoring.
Tuesday - 12:30 p.m. - 01:30 p.m. S310E: S. Concourse, L3.

Migration and Upgrade Paths to SAP Process Orchestration
SAP Process Orchestration bundles the SAP Process Integration, SAP Business Process Management, and SAP Business Rules Management in one integration platform which is capable of handling both stateless and stateful integration processes. Since it resides on a single stack on pure Java, you can run your integration processes at lower total cost of ownership TCO and better performance compared to SAP Process Integration on dual-stack. This alone should be reason enough to move from Process Integration dual-stack to Process Orchestration. Moreover, SAP Process Orchestration comes with a rules engine that allows you to externalize your business rules from your processes, a new user experience in Eclipse UI, and a rich BPM functional scope. This session will explore the options of migrating from SAP Process Integration dual-stack to SAP Process Orchestration and provide guidelines about the migration process in general. It will also cover the Directory Content Migration cockpit in particular - a tool that provides migration and mass change functionality for process integration scenarios and channels helping you to reduce the maintenance effort during the migration process.
Wednesday, 12:30 p.m. - 01:30 p.m. S310G: S. Concourse, L3.

Workflow and BPM Open Forum
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other SAP Workflow and BPM professionals. There will be several experts on hand to answer questions.
Thursday - 01:00 p.m. - 02:00 p.m., S310G: S. Concourse, L3.
