SAP Connector overview

You can use SAP Connector to integrate with SAP systems in batch, asynchronous, or synchronous modes based on your requirements.
Data Integration supports ABAP, IDoc read, IDoc write, BAPI/RFC, ODP read, and ADSO write functions to integrate with SAP systems. You can choose an SAP connection type to connect to SAP systems based on the interface requirements.
You can use the SAP connection in synchronization tasks, mappings, and mapping tasks. Create a synchronization task to synchronize data between a source and target. Create a mapping task to process data based on the data flow logic defined in a mapping or integration template.
You can also use the SAP connection in data transfer tasks. For more information about configuring data transfer tasks, see Tasks.
