Connect Solace PubSub+ event broker to your SAP systems, to create an event mesh that moves events safely, reliably and in real time from any system to any system, whereever needed.
Together, Solace and ASAPIO enable event-driven real-time communication between SAP and non-SAP apps, for on-prem and hybrid cloud environments.
How to event enable on-premises SAP data and stream it across your enterprise in real-time, with Solace PubSub+ and ASAPIO
Solace PubSub+ and ASAPIO Integration Add-on (ACI) enable enterprises to listen for changes in data generated by SAP systems on-premises (ECC modules, S/4HANA, etc.) and stream them in real-time across the distributed enterprise. For all the reasons why you might want to do this, see my first post on this topic: How to Build an Event-Driven Architecture for SAP Data.
This post focuses on the technical details of the solution. It’s based on a 6-minute webinar run by Solace’s Ricardo Gomez-Ulmke.
How does it work?
ASAPIO Connector for Solace is based on ASAPIO Integration Add-on, a proven SAP-certified solution and robust framework for many integration use-cases.
The Connector communicates directly with Solace PubSub+, and supports cloud and on-prem deployments of PubSub+.
Outbound and inbound JSON/XML messages are sent in push-mode, via HTTP POST.
How do you set this up?
It’s easy to configure ASAPIO Integration Add-on. Here’s an example: say you want to be notified when a new sales order is made. The first step is to configure ASAPIO Integration Add-on to monitor the sales order business object, and to get triggered whenever the order changes.
Next, you’ll define whatever payload you want to send out, be that (i) an event notification only, (ii) an event notification + metadata, or (iii) the event notification + data. And you’ll send it to Solace via HTTP using native SAP ICM. Then any other application and business process that touches the mesh can have real-time access to the event.
