Objectives

  • List the benefits and restrictions of using Cloud Integration Automation service

Overview

The Cloud Integration Automation service provides a guided workflow to integrate SAP cloud solutions to on-premise and other SAP cloud solutions. It is an application on SAP BTP that allows you to create a workflow for pre-defined integration scenarios, for example, integrating SAP Build Work Zone, standard edition with SAP S/4HANA.

The tool allows you to provide system information that will be used to create personalized instructions for the end-to-end setup. The steps are automated wherever possible; however, most still need to be manually executed. You can execute the task or assign it to a colleague for execution. The progress of task execution can also be monitored.

Prerequisites

Customers can use this service at no additional fee or license cost if they have the following prerequisites:

  • An SAP BTP Cloud Foundry account in one of the Cloud Integration Automation service supported data centres
  • System instances of licensed SAP products that are in scope of the integration scenarios covered in this service

You can read more about the service in the help documentation.

Benefits of Using Cloud Integration Automation Service

The two separate scenarios for integrating SAP Build Work Zone, standard edition with SAP S/4HANA on-premise or cloud provide the following benefits:

  • Faster execution by doing the full setup in hours
  • Save effort and time with automated execution capabilities covering some of the tasks
  • Save effort in identifying documentation for the end-to-end setup
  • Avoid errors by using personalized URLs for your landscape to execute manual tasks
  • Easy to exchange metadata and certificate files between different people executing the integration tasks

Restrictions

The scenario covers the initial setup for one business role. You can then extend it yourself for multiple business roles based on your needs outside of the workflow.

You can find more information about additional limitations on the SAP Help Portal.
