Thanks to SAP Gateway, it is possible to connect systems that use SAP ERP information. EKR has developed a connector that synchronizes data between KB and SAP
For many years the SAP world was considered a closed world, used only by those who could access the SAP gui or in any case the interactive interfaces owned by SAP. Since SAP introduced SAP Gateway and the possibility of accessing its internal structures through OData, it has been possible to connect systems that can use, in a complete and always up-to-date way, the information of the SAP ERP master data. Thus, EKR has developed an OData connector that allows you to bring into the EKR Knowledge Base any object that is, in some way, visible through OData, (such as the material master data, the typical MARA table, and specific classification data for each material according to its class). The advantage of such a tool is the continuous updating between SAP and the connector itself. As the data in SAP ERP are modified, the EKR Knowledge Base will be updated in real-time mode, the objects present in the Knowledge Base thus become a synchronized replica of everything that is within SAP and you choose to pass from the ERP, through the OData, to the EKR Knowledge Base.
A typical case of the use of the SAP connector is the possibility of disseminating, through off-line tools (catalogs, price lists, brochures), material data and specific characteristics, as well as pricing and much more. What is present in SAP ERP will be present in EKR as data, possibility of presence in the market based on the sales organization and, last but not least, the management of material states in order to be able to manage the obsolescence of the material itself.
