SAP NetWeaver and VANTAiO: This sophisticated standard can be used immediately
SAP NetWeaver is the SAP platform for business applications and forms the infrastructure for all other SAP applications. It lies as a basic technology between business applications and database.
SAP NetWeaver serves both as a development and runtime environment for SAP applications and as an interface for the integration of business processes and databases from various sources. The platform uses web services technologies and is thus able to connect various, often incompatible web services. As an open, web-based platform and its service-oriented architecture (SOA), SAP NetWeaver can be used for the development and integration of SAP applications as well as third-party systems and applications. This allows developers to integrate information and processes from geographically dispersed locations with different technologies, such as: .NET (Microsoft), WebSphere (IBM) or Java (Sun/Oracle).
The basis for all applications on NetWeaver is the SAP NetWeaver Application Server, which is divided into an ABAP and a Java EE application server. These two parts, also called stacks, can be installed either individually or together. Communication connections of the two stacks are made possible by the Java Connector.
The SAP Enterprise Portal is part of SAP NetWeaver and the ideal basis for standardized solutions. It forms a powerful framework for the frontend integration of various SAP and third-party applications as well as for the integration of structured and unstructured data. The portal user is provided with role-based, web-enabled access to information and applications of different backend systems. Comprehensive authentication systems make registration for each individual backend system or every single data source superfluous. The most important components and functions of the SAP Enterprise Portal include i.a. powerful user management, security mechanisms, including single sign on (SSO), personalization, connectivity connectors, and framework for integrating SAP and non-SAP data sources and applications.
With their features, SAP NetWeaver/SAP Enterprise Portal and VANTAiO software complement each other optimally and provide a mature starting point for your corporate or trade portal.
