I had a chance to meet Vadim Klimov at #SITCPH two weeks ago. Vadim is an Integration Architect at ARM. We got to talk a lot on integration and what was going one. I have been looking a lot on Vadim blogs on sap.com like the SAP PI adapter logging or the dark side of Groovy Scripting.
I talked with Vadim Klimov about how new tools have an influence on the way we work with cloud integration and how flows for different scenarios can help us understand the integration with SuccessFactors using SAP CPI and a prem PI. I’m currently involved in a project where we are using OData V2 to access SuccessFactors data. There are some challenges involved with it. We need some workaround to be able to see information about people starting in the future. In The Integration Center in SuccessFactors, their are many options, when you are looking for filed-based integration. The interface is web-based and allows business users to easily create files. Vadim is using the CPI and PI to move the file to their own landscape.
We also talked about how they do error handling in CPI and what makes sense in that perspective. The process works differently than in PI, so you must understand how it works best there. At Figaf we are improving the capabilities to monitor, test and support your CPI systems, so you can get notifications about what is going on.
We also cover Groovy development, as I would like to understand Vadim thinking on the area.
It was a very interesting conversation which I hope, you will enjoy.
