SAP integration with Salesforce

Best of both worlds

SAP is one of the leading providers of enterprise software worldwide.Many large companies around the world choose SAP to deliver the right information at the right time. Complex automated solutions for business management and corporate reporting help create a single space within the company. The possibility of merging with third-party solutions can be considered an important advantage of SAP ERP. Such integration options increase the work efficiency and help automate many business processes. But in order to achieve the desired result, you need to be sure that the integration process is properly done and all systems work as planned.

The most popular scenario for SAP integration is integration with an intracorporate CRM system. For several years now, Salesforce has been leading the world CRM market. Therefore, the issue of integrating these two platforms is relevant for leading companies seeking to use the best solutions for business automation in finance, human capital management, manufacturing, sales, and supply chain.

Integration challenges

The main challenge when integrating both systems is the fact that SAP ERP is an on-premise software when Salesforce is a cloud solution 

One of the essential requirements for basic integration between these two systems is synchronizing account and contact data from SAP to Salesforce 

Salesforce users generate quotes using products and price book information that should be linked with corresponding opportunities in Salesforce. At the same time, info about products and pricing information is run in SAP and needs to be synchronized with Salesforce

The need to process opportunities in Salesforce till order and execution in SAP should be considered as well

Relevant data, such as related order history and the current financial status, needs to be accessible in real time to the Salesforce user. 

Possible integration options

Both SAP and Salesforce being mature products provide extensive tools and techniques for integration with other software solutions, including pre-built for specific products or integration interfaces based on universal widely used protocols (e.g. SOAP, OData, REST).

Integration scenario
