This stage is all about getting the platform ready for the project. We set up the platform, connectivity, infrastructure, security…, while keeping your team involved in an agile way. This ensures they become equipped to handle any changes later on without needing help from an external party.

As the famous quote goes: “A fool with a tool is still a fool.” Developing robust integration landscapes is more than simply setting up a tool. It is also about governance, change management and structuring IT processes.
At this stage we will help you to embed the SAP Integration Suite in your existing IT governance processes. Some of the key steps in this phase are:
- Setting up an integration design approach with the right people, specification templates, …
- Adopting the SAP ISA-M integration methodology
- Building up a library of reusable integration assets
- Testing (including automated testing), transport, and release management
- Monitoring, logging & alerting
Now it’s time to equip your team with the skills they will need to build integrations on the platform and become an “Integration Suite Center of Excellence”. We provide the necessary product training with hands-on exercises, development guidelines, best practices, naming conventions, etc. Theory and a handy helicopter view are important, but since practice makes perfect, the trainings are packed with hands-on exercises.
To set you off on the right track, we work together when building the first scenarios. Using pair programming, the initial integration flows are co-developed in short incremental sprints. Our sprint review meetings feature interactive code reviews supported by senior experts with hands-on support. Learnings are shared directly in the group allowing the team to become autonomous and self-supporting in the shortest space of time.
Peace of mind
Afterwards you are ready to go your own way and become an “Integration Suite Center of Excellence”. But no worries: if there is any issue you cannot solve, we are still there to help you.
