SAP PI to CPI Migration Tool

Get migrations done faster and in better quality

Clients using SAP Process Integration (PI) have to migrate to SAP Cloud Integration (CPI) sooner or later because SAP PI support is ending. The migration to SAP CPI is well worth it but requires time and resources. For this reason, our clients are using our PI to CPI migration tool to automate tedious tasks.

As a company with the mission to simplify SAP integration processes, we’ve been thinking of automating PI to CPI migration for a while. However, SAP started the Hack2Build competition in 2021 seaking for a solution for the time-consuming migration process. We took on the challenge and developed a tool to convert PI ICO’s to CPI iflows based on our established SAP Automation Framework.

Figaf won the SAP Hack2Build competition and we added the PI to CPI migration tool to the Figaf DevOps Suite.
With the toolset, you can save at least 2/3 of the time needed for the migration.  Furthermore, the included capabilities for transport and testing help to handle the project and increase quality.

What does the PI to CPI Migration Tool support?

  • SAP PI 7.1 and later
  • ICO/iflow or Receiver Determination
  • Both Asynchronous and Synchronous Integrations
  • Channel conversions using templates
  • Creating test cases on the SAP PI system and then use them on CPI

​​Message mappings support

Teams using SAP PI have invested much effort into building SAP PI Message Mappings over the last decade. Message Mappings make up a big part of these integrations, and many use Function Libraries. Figaf helps you to automate the migration your valuable mappings and retain their value by supporting the migration of Function Libraries.

​​Channels conversion

We made it easy to convert SAP PI Channels to CPI Channels: Use the pre-delivered templates and adjust the channels to support your flows.

​​Migration of test cases

Once the migration is done, you want to know if everything that matters got migrated correctly. For that reason, you can create a test case with the Figaf Tool to record messages from your SAP PI system. Then, you can take this test case and convert it to an SAP CPI test case with a few clicks and test whether everything is working as expected.

Time and resources required for a typical Migration Project

As a general rule 70% of the interfaces can be migrated, 15% should be redesigned and 15% are outdated or can be replaced with standard content.

A typical person-day budget for conducting the migration project with 200 ICO’s without automation is 375 person-days.

What can be automated, and how much time saved?

With the Figaf Migration Automation Tool, you can save ⅔ of the time budget for ICO/Receiver Determination conversion. Furthermore, the included testing tool can validate the conversions and get better migrations done faster. However, in hindsight, the preparation is taking a little longer.

With the Figaf migration automation tool, the 200 ICOs that need to be migrated take 210 person-days. 

Resulting time saved by automation: 375 – 210 = 165 person-days 

Business case: Does automation pay off?

Based on the person-days saved and a standard hourly rate, we can calculate the cost savings and compare it with the tool costs. This is to see how much return you can expect on the initial investment for the software (ROI):

The standard rate is 70 EUR/Hour * 165 person-days = 92.400 EUR savings

Figaf Tool for the migration will cost 100 EUR per ICO/Receiver Determination. This includes using the testing and transport functionality for the migration project.

Investment
170 ICO * 100 EUR/ICO = 17.000 EUR

The value of time savings due to automation: 92.400 EUR

Return on Investment (ROI)
92.400 EUR/ 17.000 EUR = 540%

Why did I create Figaf?

SAP Integration is a hot topic in the SAP world because you need good integrations to run your enterprise. On top of this, the integration need is growing, and it has become more complex.

Even if the integration development has become easier, then there has not been a significant improvement in the governance process. SAP Customers would typically follow some framework like SOX or ITIL to ensure they have the proper documentation and separation of duties.

I have worked with a lot of SAP customers, and I have been frustrated with the process of documentation. Most did not capture enough data, while others captured useless information that the developers should ensure was updated. Also, there was no proper way of testing the integration, so it never performed well. 

Most SAP Integration Teams have two challenges:

  1. Too many integrations to the current team of developers
  2. Needing to ensure their deployment procedures are followed

That is why we build Figaf DevOps Suite. It focuses on the integration can be delivered better to make life easier for integration developers.

In the last six years, I’m happy to report that we have built a tool that has enabled developers in more than 20 companies to focus more on the integrations instead of on tasks that should be automated.
