Why do I need it?

Connecting standards

If you already use SharePoint® online and SAP® it makes absolutely sense to connect both technologies. With our connector you do not need any hardware and you have not to take care on maintenance and updates.
Save costs for hardware -- Save costs for setup -- Save costs for maintenance & updates -- includes Connector License -- no risks

Easy to run

Customizable & Flexible

The setup and customizing is quite easy, so that you are ready to run the connector in less than a day. We provide all you need so that you are able to make your first tests in OAC0 transaction. Afterwards you can start to customize the metadata, structures, SharePoint® Content Types and further settings.

Additional support

Configuration and General support

If you are unsure and if you do not want to manage the customizing in your own responsibility, we also offer consulting services to get the connector run. We can make workshops and/or online sessions or visit you on site to customize and manage your project. We can also customize examples so that you can adapt the settings based on your needs.

onPremise vs. online

Connector compatibility

We also offer a onPremise Connector version which is compatible with SAP & SharePoint onPremise. If you would like to know more about this version please contact us so that we can discuss your requirements and version compatibility.

Features of the connector

Below you will find a list with some of the unique features which we support out of the box with some customizing.

Folders & Structures

Create n-Level of folders based on the meta data out of SAP®. This can be used to structure your library. You can also save files on root-level of your library if you do not want to use the folder storage strategy.

Document Library

Use SharePoint® Document Libraries out of the box. You can create your own columns and you can use own views to display the library. No further changes on SharePoint® are required. Multiple Document Libraries are supported.

Document Sets & Content Types

The connector supports Document Sets within your SharePoint® Library. Content Types are also supported and can be used in combination with the folder storage strategy.

Metadata Customizing

The metadata can be customized within SAP® using a graphical interface to drag & drop the customizing relations. No developments are required to define the meta data which will be send to SharePoint®. You can update the meta data in realtime, you can schedule a job in SAP® or you can manage the update in own responsibility.

S/4 HANA and backward compatibility

The connector is compatible with most SAP® and SharePoint® releases, including SAP® Business Objects and FIORI. We can support you with your data migration, so that you can keep all existing processes (Scanning, Workflows).

Viewing & Security

View your documents within the SAP® Window or within SharePoint® online. We also support custom URLs for viewing your documents. You can split your sites to manage confidential documents and public documents. SAP® * document class is also supported as well as defined document classes like PDF or TIF and others.
