Open source community project simplifies application integration, cuts software costs for SAP users
SAN FRANCISCO – August 11, 2009 – “Amidst industry turmoil, financial institutions continue to invest in IT projects which address important business needs and have rapid return on investment,” said Greg Schott, CEO of MuleSource. “Mule ESB is synonymous with lightweight simplicity, yet it is powerful enough to drive mission-critical applications in the world’s largest businesses.”
“SAP is the market-leading ERP player, with a dominant deployment footprint in more than 120 countries globally,” said Yuji Yamano of OGIS, and project lead for the SAP Transport. “The SAP Transport for Mule 2 brings the power and simplicity of Mule ESB to the countless IT organizations that need to integrate their core SAP systems with other applications and services.”
The SAP Transport for Mule 2 provides connectivity with SAP ERP 6.0. Users can send an XML message that is equivalent to a BAPI function request and receive an XML message that is equivalent to a BAPI function response. The transport uses RFC and BAPI calls via JCO (SAP Java Connector) provided by SAP.
“For many years, IT organizations have relied on expensive and heavyweight proprietary integration solutions or custom code to move data in and out of their SAP applications,” said Ross Mason, CTO and co-founder of MuleSource. “This new MuleForge project dramatically improves the cost equation for SAP users, and once again demonstrates the power of the Mule community.”
