About Siebel eAI Prebuilt Connectors
Siebel Systems and its partners provide prebuilt, end-to-end, functional integration for major packaged applications. These connectors use data and cross-application process integration services provided by the Siebel eBusiness platform (see About Siebel eAI). For each supported business process, the connectors include built-in data mapping between the exchanged entities, as well as sequencing and error handling.
About the Siebel Connector for SAP R/3
Siebel Connector for SAP R/3 allows integration between Siebel applications and SAP R/3. The Siebel Connector for SAP R/3 provides an infrastructure that allows Siebel eBusiness Applications to interact with SAP R/3 through standard SAP R/3 technologies. It virtually eliminates the need to code components for transforming and routing data between Siebel applications and SAP R/3. The connector supports both SAP's Business APIs (BAPIs) for real-time interaction and Application Link Enabling (ALE/IDOC) for asynchronous integration.
