SAP PO (Process Orchestration) has been a popular integration platform for many years, but with the emergence of SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI), many organizations are considering migrating their interfaces from SAP PO to SAP CPI. This migration can help organizations take advantage of the benefits of cloud-based integration, including increased flexibility, scalability, and reduced maintenance costs. In this blog post, we will discuss how to move interfaces from SAP PO to SAP Cloud Platform Integration.
Step 1: Analyze and Map Interfaces
The first step in the migration process is to analyze and map all the interfaces in SAP PO. This step involves understanding the current landscape, identifying the interfaces that need to be migrated, and defining the new target architecture in SAP CPI.
Step 2: Convert Interfaces to iFlows
Once the interfaces have been analyzed and mapped, the next step is to convert them to iFlows in SAP CPI. An iFlow is a configuration object in SAP CPI that defines the integration scenario. The iFlow includes information on the source and target systems, the integration logic, and the mapping rules.
Step 3: Create Integration Flows
After the iFlows have been created, the next step is to create integration flows that use the iFlows to move data between the source and target systems. Integration flows can be created using the SAP CPI web interface, which provides a visual editor for designing integration flows.
Step 4: Test and Deploy Integration Flows
The final step is to test and deploy the integration flows in SAP CPI. Testing is an important part of the migration process, as it ensures that the interfaces are functioning correctly and that the data is being moved between the systems as expected. Once testing is complete, the integration flows can be deployed to the production environment.
Migrating interfaces from SAP PO to SAP Cloud Platform Integration can be a complex process, but it can also offer significant benefits in terms of flexibility, scalability, and reduced maintenance costs. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, organizations can successfully move their interfaces from SAP PO to SAP CPI and take advantage of the benefits of cloud-based integration.
