Unlock your SAP data with Confluent and ASAPIO

Enable your SAP systems for seamless connectivity to Confluent Platform and Confluent Cloud.


ASAPIO connects SAP systems directly to Confluent, for Analytics, Process and Application integration

Supports a broad range of SAP ABAP-based systems, including SAP ECC, S/4HANA, BW, HCM, and more.

Visit the Confluent website to learn more on Confluent Cloud in particular, and how this is the perfect platform for your SAP data.

Universal and code-less approach reduces effort and risk

Use our ASAPIO Payload Designer application (or a database / CDS view) to model the message types. Custom code is still possible, if you need it. The ASAPIO configuration approach for an interface is same across many of the available connectors, you are not locked-in to a specifc target platform.

Bi-directional communication  

ASAPIO supports both outbound and inbound communication. For outbound, choose between event-driven (single events) or batch mode (multiple events, including multiple events per REST proxy call), per interface.
