SAP Exchange Infrastructure provides open integration technologies that support process-centric collaboration among SAP and non-SAP components, both within and beyond enterprise boundaries.
When the components that support business processes are spread across heterogeneous systems, changes to those components can get expensive. SAP Exchange Infrastructure reduces the costs of, and removes the barriers to, true integration. It consolidates the knowledge necessary to access functionality, integrate systems, and drive business processes in a shared knowledge base.
