Hello,

There are lots of API's available to extract data from Non-SAP System.

[Extraction to Non-SAP Systems|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/a8/a6eae34c9e9b4cbd8fbc7acd2845d0/content.htm]

[Data Transfer from External Systems|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/c2/bfb8e6fea9354a8bfaceecd61ec553/content.htm]

You can also use Flat file extraction if the data is availabel in flat file.

You can use SOAP for extracting data from XML File
