Migrate from Seeburger to SAP PI B2B Addon webinar

Yesterday I hosted a webinar where we covered how to migrate from Seeburger on SAP PI to B2B Addon on SAP PO.

In the webinar, I covered some of the biggest challenges with migration.

  • How to create a business case for it. This is one of the challenges that I cannot help that much with, the main reason would be to the Seeburger Licensing. I’m unclear what it would mean.
  • How to convert the mappings. The message structures have changed, so you will need to update the schemas. It is not much but you need to do it correctly to ensure nothing is changed.
  • How to get rid of the seeburger User-Defined functions. The B2B Add-on have some different approaches to variables and counters, you probably need to upgrade the mappings to ensure that it works smoothly.
  • How to ensure everything is tested correctly. You don’t want to coordinate a migration with your partners more than necessary. So you just want to move the mappings and then ensure you have tested enough in the process.

I have two products that work to improve such a migration

Seeburger Migration Tool to migrate your mappings from the old format to the new. https://figaf.com/SMT

IRT 2.0 released you can now test SAP PI/PO for free

Ever since I started with developing SAP PI/PO testing was a big thing. There has not been any tool provided by SAP for it.

Over the last two years, we at Figaf has been working on creating a testing tool for testing SAP PI/PO. We got some customers using it, and it is improving their operations. Both when applying support packs or when checking that their new transports work as expected.

I thrilled to announce that we now support a free version of our testing tool. I guess it is also kind of scary to give away something that has cost this much to develop for free. There is some limitation on this free version but you will be able to test some of your interfaces and ensure they work. You can only test 10 ICO(Integration Objects) and save 100 test cases.

IRT is a tool that allows you to collect messages from your productive SAP PI/PO system and then process them on your development system. This is the fastest way to create a validation that your scenarios work.

See a short demo of IRT below.

It is fairly simple to install and run IRT. Install an SCA file on the SAP PI/PO system, create a user and you are ready to run it.  You can get it working in 1 hour if you got the access required.

Download IRT today and start testing your SAP PI/PO systems.

 

Handover workshop for PI knowledge transfer

I was stopping on a project the other day and had to do some knowledge transfer. I got some great learning’s from this. Please see this short video about what happened.

Even I learned something and found ways to improve the scenarios to make the better fulfill the business requirements.
