How our SAP S/4HANA integration works

Our Vantree Connectivity Suite (VCS) sits between you and your trading partners. It automates the integration, translation, and delivery services of EDI and non-EDI documents to and from your SAP S/4HANA ERP.

Below are three sections within the SAP S/4HANA interface, showing how Vantree works behind the scenes to ensure your teams can efficiently perform their day-to-day processing tasks.

The first section in SAP PI, the Enterprise Service Repository, is used to design and create objects in the integration scenario. You can develop Interface Objects, Mapping Objects, and different integration processes.  

The ESR allows Vantree’s implementation team to perform the mapping between Vantree and SAP S/4HANA. Additionally, The ESR allows Vantree’s staff to test the mapping, see the results, and adjust mappings accordingly.

The second section, called the Integration Builder, contains an Integration Repository for design purposes and an Integration Directory for configuration purposes. Vantree uses the Integration Builder to define and manage the objects in the Integration Directory. The Integration Builder helps Vantree’s team complete the following tasks:  

  • Configure Objects 
  • Define Work Areas for Grouping Objects 
  • Open Objects (Object Editor) 
  • Edit Objects 

The SAP NetWeaver forms the technical foundation for many SAP application landscapes, including SAP S/4HANA. Vantree’s team uses the application server and platform for application integration and development.

Learn more about Vantree's API-based SAP S/4HANA integration

SAP S/4HANA is a software suite for managing enterprise resource planning (ERP) operations, which allows organizations to perform their day-to-day activities in real-time. SAP S/4HANA is a software solution to help large companies manage their operations through different locations or corporate entities, from sales to finance and customer service.

S/4HANA is the cornerstone – or digital core – of SAP’s strategy for helping its clients through digital transformation, a broad term that encompasses many things. It means that SAP wants to help its clients become more flexible, agile, and resilient by modifying their current business processes and models or creating new ones.

S/4HANA was developed to make ERP more contemporary, faster, and easier to utilize using a streamlined data structure, lean framework, and an upgraded user interface built on the tile-structured SAP Fiori UI. It incorporates several cutting-edge technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine-learned technology, the Internet of Things (IoT), and advanced analytical abilities. The SAP S/4HANA relational database system and the integration of these technologies permit S/4HANA to help resolve complicated issues in real time and examine more details at once than previous SAP ERP solutions.

EDI is the automated electronic data transfer between companies using a standard electronic format. Electronic exchanges of documents with established message standards offer significant communication advantages, including reduced costs, greater efficiency, fewer errors, and reinforced trading partner relationships.

There are many electronic business transactions, but the two most common are purchase orders and invoices. EDI guarantees that essential documents are sent and received in a readable format, preventing business partners from wasting valuable resources in manual data entry.

Documents sent and received from business partners and customers must be processed efficiently to maintain a strong commerce network and customer relationships. Here are some examples of EDI documents automated with Vantree’s Business Central EDI integration:

  • Invoices – 810 Invoices;
  • Sales Orders – 850 Purchase Orders;
  • Ship File – 856 Ship Notice/Manifest;
  • Debit/Credit Memo – 812 Debit/Credit Adjustment;
  • Cash Receipt – 820 Payment Advice;
  • Purchase Order Acknowledgment – 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgment;
