Transform to a solid, future-proof Integration Foundation

How complex are your current integrations?

Reducing the complexity of the integration landscape is a utopia, but we should aim for an increased flexibility of the integration landscape. However point-to-point integration tends to build up over time due to sudden changes in business requirements.

What is your score in integration maturity?

Do you have a high degree of confidence in the scalability and the sustainability of the integration solution to operate at high load? Or is your integration support team constantly engaged in a cycle of identifying and resolving issues.
Is the current integration solution able to handle future technologies, or do you think that it can only support legacy systems and applications?
Is the current integration solution able to cater to the different integration domains (Cloud – Cloud, Cloud – On-Prem, User- Cloud, thing – Cloud), integration styles (Data Integration, Process Integration, User Integration, Things integration) and business use cases (B2B, B2G, A2A, Master data Integration, Data Replication, Data Virtualization) OR do you have separate products for each requirement?
Do you have a high degree of confidence that the current Integration solution has incorporated SAP best practices and will continue to do so with the new implementation?
Is the integration solution vulnerable to threats? Is the data in rest and the data in motion subject to external threats?
Is the current error-handling mechanism uniform across all integration solutions? Or is integration-specific error handling in place?

Are you scalable enough?

Enterprise applications integrations are not scalable due to tight integrations (point-to-point integrations). The distributed application landscape causes high dependencies and insufficient flexibility to act quickly to fast-changing demands. It also causes more vulnerabilities within the security of your applications and data integrations. You cannot meet the demands of the business to provide real-time integrations. Poor integration error handling and tracking will occur.

So where do you start?

This is where the term “composable business” kicks in.

The concept of the composable business is a central element in this vision. Composable business means creating an organization made from interchangeable building blocks.

Achieving pure CLEAN CORE is a tough challenge for any enterprise that has many custom-code-enabled business processes.
