Organizations often seek to fully harness the power of SAP applications through integration with other systems, creating end-to-end business processes across applications, both on-premise and in the cloud. Mule ESB Enterprise offers a simplified approach to integrating SAP solutions with other systems in the enterprise by allowing developers to deliver integration faster, more easily, and with a lower total cost of ownership by utilizing existing expertise and resources in Java and SAP technology.
