SAP NetWeaver

Definition - What is SAP NetWeaver?

SAP NetWeaver—a popular application computing platform that is responsible for the run time and development environment for SAP application, is basically a combine of SAP software tools for business applications and SAP Kernel (OS). This application builder from the world of SAP (Systems Applications and Products) is very useful for integrating business databases and processes from varied sources; along with exploiting contemporary web services technologies such as Microsoft's.NET, Sun's Java technologies and IBM's Web Sphere.

SAP NetWeaver is an interoperable internet based Application Platform that is fully compatible with third party platforms and other SAP components and applications. As it boasts of a common runtime environment, this SAP module is being increasingly used for various SAP Business Suites such as SAP CRM (Customer Relationship Management), SAP SRM and so forth. An integral part of the popular mySAP product group from the company, NetWeaver is receiving a lot of industry attention because it happens to be the first web-based cross-application, fully interoperable platform that can be used for developing not only SAP applications but numerous others as well.

NetWeaver permits developers to integrate crucial information and processes from geographically dispersed locations via diverse technologies. It has been marked as a product that is fully equipped to spur the adoption of web services for various verticals. In the current scenario, even though Web Services are seen as future-oriented development models, their rate of implementation has not been high. This is attributed to the competition and incompatibility existing between enabling products. This makes it important for organizations to implement the SAP NetWeaver Gateway that facilitates better consumption of business logic, easier provisioning, streamlining of SAP backend systems designed for web, mobile based applications and more.

As SAP NetWeaver is a useful tool for all devices and developers, it aims to bring about a reduction in complexity and skill sets required for accessing SAP data. Going a long way in removing deployment barriers, its simplistic interfaces are quite helpful in shortening development times. NetWeaver Gateway exposes the SAP Business Suite functionality in the form of REST-based OData services (Open Data Protocol services) and allows SAP applications to integrate data with an exhaustive range of technologies, devices and platforms, in a manner that’s easy to consume and understand.

The usage of REST services brings forth:

  • Easily comprehensible human readable results and helpful data that can be viewed using the browser.
  • Stateless apps.
  • Related and relevant pieces of information wherein one piece of data effectively relates to the other for better results.
  • Use of standard commands like PUT, POST, GET and DELETE which allows users to work on the same format and get access to customized results.
  • Capability of being used by a vast range of applications like Twilio, Amazon, Twitter, Face Book, YouTube, eBay and Yahoo!
