  • Can support one or more functions of one interface
  • Is based on generic BIS adapters and standard solutions (BIS EAI/API solutions)
  • Includes added value ranging from expert documentation on how to address an integration challenge with standard BIS functionality, to a ready-to-run SEEBURGER Connector artefact
  • Includes all necessary license modules (limited to the specific scenario) and information (including expert documentation) to address an integration scenario

 

SEEBURGER adapters and SEEBURGER connectors: What is the difference?

  • SEEBURGER Adapter:
    An adapter is a generic SEEBURGER BIS module which can be used for multiple connectivity purposes.
    Examples: REST Adapter, OFTP2 adapter, EDIFACT adapter, SAP tRFC adapter, WebServices Adapter
