SAP HANA Cloud Integration (HCI) is an integration platform that provides the key capabilities that an enterprise integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) typically has. It integrates SAP cloud applications such as SuccessFactors, SAP Cloud for Customer (C4C), globalization scenarios for the integration of legal authorities, SAP Financial Services Network (FSN), and Ariba.
SAP HANA Cloud Integration (SAP HCI) is SAP’s cloud integration offering that significantly simplifies the needs of integration in the cloud. With SAP HCI you are able to integrate a cloud application with an on-premise application in a few steps, and then leverage predefined integration content from SAP’s integration content catalog. You don’t have to set up and maintain an on-premise integration system. SAP HCI is not limited to integration content pre-defined by SAP, but is also open for integration content developed and delivered by a wide ecosystem of partners. SAP HCI is a full-blown integration platform, with which you can implement any integration scenario, including the integration of non-SAP, on-premise, or in the cloud systems.
We explain how to do this with the following sample integration scenario. An enterprise already leverages SAP ERP HCM on-premise and now wants to use SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS). The company wants to raise the productivity of employees through training courses and to increase talent within the company. The training procedures are done with the help of the SuccessFactors solution.
