    1 Introduction SAP S/4HANA is the next-generation business suite product that provides innovated and tightly

    coupled solutions that support end-to-end business processes integration between SAP S/4HANA

    core components and SAP software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud solutions such as SAP Ariba, SAP

    SuccessFactors, SAP Fieldglass, Concur, SAP Hybris, SAP Cloud for Customer, SAP Financial

    Services Network, and other third-party solutions like Vertex for tax calculation.

    SAP offers two different deployment options to integrate SAP S/4HANA, namely SAP S/4HANA, on-

    premise edition and SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition.

    Currently, there are three different offerings available as part of the SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition:

    SAP S/4HANA, cloud marketing edition

    SAP S/4HANA, cloud project services edition

    SAP S/4HANA, cloud enterprise edition

    These also offer prepackaged integration best practices content and engineered services for SAP S/4HANA and to the existing cloud solutions.

    2 SAP S/4HANA, On-Premise Edition Integration Depending on the customer requirements the SAP S/4HANA, on premise integration scenario offers

    a business scope including SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management processes as well as integration

    best practice content with SAPs SaaS cloud solutions and third-party applications using SAP

    Process Orchestration, Web services, or SAP HANA Cloud Integration.

    SAP HANA Cloud Integration (HCI) is SAPs cloud integration middleware and is a SaaS product that

    provides standard integration content delivered by SAP to integrate SAP SuccessFactors, SAP

    Ariba, SAP Financial Services Network and SAP Cloud for Customer with SAP S/HANA on premise

    systems or even SAP ERP.

    The SAP S/4HANA, on premise edition can be used as an install-based system or hosted on SAP

    HANA Enterprise Cloud. Customers can leverage it either by downloading the packaged best

    practices from the SAP Service Marketplace or via engineered service. The best practices can be

    deployed on the customer landscape or hosted in the cloud.

    3 SAP S/4HANA, Cloud Edition Integration Other than the on premise edition, SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition is designed for enterprises that need

    standardized cloud integration offerings that cover the core business scenarios and the line-of-

    business cloud solutions. For the cloud edition, the main integration technologies are SAP HANA

    Cloud Integration and Web services.

    Based on the selected scope and subscription model, customers can leverage the fully integrated,

    secured, and managed SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition by SAP. In most cases, the required customer

    integration scenarios are provisioned, configured, and activated from SAP Cloud Operations and

    SAP Cloud Service Center, or SAP provides self-configuration user interfaces so customers are able

    to configure the solution.

    The current SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition already covers specific business scenarios for the marketing line of business and for the professional services industry. The enterprise edition includes: finance, accounting, controlling, procurement, sales, manufacturing, plant maintenance, project system, and product lifecycle management. The content is integrated with SAP cloud solutions such as SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, SAP Ariba, SAP Hybris Marketing, SAP Jam, SAP Financial Services Network, and third-party integration with Vertex for tax calculation. Three offerings are currently available as part of SAP S/4HANA, cloud edition:

    SAP S/4HANA, cloud marketing edition for the marketing line of business

    SAP S/4HANA, cloud project services edition for the professional services industry

    SAP S/4HANA, cloud enterprise edition for a full ERP scope

    Furthermore, SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP) serves as an extension platform for SAP S/4HANA.

    Customers and partners are able to build specific capabilities extending the scope of SAP S/4HANA

    by integrating non-SAP solutions or developing new capabilities using the whitelisted APIs.

    The following figure illustrates the integration technology options for S/4HANA, on premise and cloud

    editions:

    4 Why Does SAP Process Integration Matter and How Does SAP HANA

    Cloud Integration Differ from SAP Process Orchestration? Imagine you own an on premise HCM application. It is up and running in your system landscape and

    you want to innovate and integrate your HR business processes or master data with SAP

    SuccessFactors cloud-based applications. Similar to any A2A integration, you need to ensure that

    data and processes are integrated accurately and reliably. Furthermore, HR employees might need

    to access data from different HR applications, such as replicating employee data from SAP Success

    Factors Employee Central to an SAP S/4HANA application or cost center data from an SAP

    S/4HANA financial application to SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central. Depending on the

    deployment model, the integration of both on premise and cloud-based applications can be realized

    through Web services, the on premise SAP Process Orchestration, or SAP HANA Cloud Integration

    middleware and ensure that data and processes are secured, mapped, and transferred properly.

    SAP HANA Cloud Integration is not the only product for which SAP provides integration middleware.

    The integration content offered by SAP for SAP HANA Cloud Integration can be viewed

    at https://cloudintegration.hana.ondemand.com. SAP offers many standard integration capabilities

    and content for SAP Process Orchestration. However, SAP HANA Cloud Integration is not only the

    standard content. The management and monitoring of this integration content is offered by SAP in

    the cloud environment. SAP is therefore responsible for the hosting, configuration, and monitoring of

    integration scenarios. This involves a new service offering for which interaction with SAP customers

    is very important. It relieves the customer of hosting, configuration, and monitoring the integration

    environment. A huge difference with SAP Process Orchestration is that the standard content offered

    must be hosted, configured, managed, and monitored by the customer.

    The following table illustrates the main differences between SAP Process Orchestration and SAP

    HANA Cloud Integration.
