Key Concept

SAP Gateway is the technology that allows external applications, devices, environments, and platforms to connect to SAP systems in a secure way. It offers a unified and controlled framework through which new solutions can be developed to offer support to custom mobile or Internet applications. By using the Open Data (OData) protocol and REST service approach, SAP Gateway offers support for many languages, which allows connectivity to almost any possible environment.

Technology is constantly evolving and offering new ways for doing everyday tasks in a friendlier way. As such, it is important that companies continue to innovate and ensure that users of their products are provided with the best their products have to offer. With this in mind, SAP has released HR Renewal, the new environment for HR professionals (e.g., end users in the HR department), managers, and employees.

SAP recently released HR Renewal Feature Package 4, which is a Web-based solution developed using SAP’s new development environment called UI (User Interface) Development Toolkit for HTML5, or more commonly referred to as SAPUI5. SAPUI5’s technology allows for the development of user-friendly Web applications that connect to SAP systems in various ways, mainly using SAP Gateway.
