X4 SAP enables companies to integrate SAP-based systems into any company-cross business processes and to connect them with non-SAP systems. All SAP-relevant data are processed transaction secure and without media discontinuities − from their origin to their completion.
SAP integration without programming
With X4 SAP, it is no longer necessary to develop your own components for communicating with SAP. The solution provides an adapter for the X4 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) usable out of the box. You can drag & drop the adapter into your business processes and graphically configure it.
The X4 SAP adapter meets the highest standards in terms of performance, scalability and security.
Transaction secure data interchange between SAP and non-SAP systems
With X4 SAP, data is securely exchanged between SAP and the systems involved in real time. X4 SAP is based on the JCo API, SAP’s recommended standard. JCo allows to access all data and internal SAP business processes both via Remote Function Calls (RFCs) or using Business APIs (BAPI) on any Business Objects. X4 SAP also allows nesting of BAPIs within business processes.
To exchange data via ALE (Application Link Enabling), IDocs can be created and exchanged bidirectionally with SAP systems.

SAP integration – online & offline
X4 SAP allows to create interface specifications automatically. The generated XML structures are copied to the X4 Server repository and can then be used, e.g. for process modeling. Thus, complex SAP integration projects can also be prepared offline. The R/3 connection data can be dynamically adapted to the particular situation within the process running time (SAP client, user, language, SAP system number).
Connecting multiple SAP systems
X4 SAP allows to connect multiple SAP systems to the X4 Enterprise Service Bus at the same time. This can be relevant for the following scenarios:
- Two or more systems are operated at different locations.
- An already existing SAP host needs to be connected to a new SAP host within the scope of a migration project.
