Why is EDA relevant for SAP Customers?

For decades, point-to-point or classic middleware approaches were the only and costly way to connect SAP systems to the outside IT landscapes. Industry analysts predict an ever growing number of system interfaces to come along with proceeding digitalisation. EDA is the way ahead to master that.

  • What are the benefits of EDA for SAP integration, and how to use these in your real-life IT scenarios?
  • Speakers from top SAP customers Microsoft and Siemens
  • Learn how you can manage integration of sales, production, logistics and other critical business data with todays platforms and solutions

Supply chain integration – leveraging an Azure event-based architecture from SAP

Kevin Wilson, Program Management Architect


Many operational business processes require near real-time attention and response, which, in turn, requires near real-time access to SAP events and related transaction data.  An effective and common solution is to leverage SAP business events in combination with an Event-driven architecture.
At Microsoft, we leverage this in production for internal SAP PO change notifications and ASN exception handling, with plans to incorporate more events across more processes.

Session 4 — 17:30-17:55 CET | 11:30-11:55pm EST
