Importance of SAP integration

An ERP system is indispensable in one’s own company in order to use and plan resources efficiently. SAP is the most widely used enterprise resource planning system here. It is widely used and is extremely relevant for Industry 4.0. This is because the system helps to make more efficient, better and faster decisions in production – provided that the important and correct data is available as a basis. In the Smart Factory, it is now part of the process to collect and evaluate much more information than just purchasing. Enterprise resources can also be better planned on the basis of additional information. All use cases in modern industry require information about the company’s own plants, machines, and resources.

Advantages of SAP integration
with Orchestra at a glance

SAP integration offers a number of benefits. Isolated islands of data can be connected and thus, for example, raised to a higher level and decisions can thus be made better on the basis of more relevant information.

With Orchestra, templates can be created using low-coding approaches. All systems of the SAP ecosystem can be addressed (ERP, ME, PCO, DMC, etc.). In addition, a logical SAP system can be simulated with the help of the Orchestra middleware. Through the built-in “Patch and Dispatch Mappings”, data and information can be distributed quickly and easily to SAP systems as well as to third-party systems from other manufacturers. Orchestra stands for the “best-of-breed approach” and guarantees compatibility with all other systems of your choice.

Successful implementation
of SAP integration at Paul Horn

During the implementation for Paul Horn, the SAP system was successfully integrated with the NAV interface of the local financial administration. Orchestra acts as its own SAP system and transfers electronically created invoices to the Orchestra database. Through an automated transfer, the status of invoice processing at the local financial administration is automatically reported back to the initial system through a decoupled process. The subsequent technical check remains in place until a positive or negative response has been fed back to SAP. If the check is successful, the data is stored in encrypted form.
