Siebel Connector for SAP R/3 > About SAP R/3 >
Features and Capabilities
The Siebel Connector for SAP R/3 comprises two kinds of integrations, which are based on different interfaces supported by the SAP R/3 application:
- BAPI-based Integration, which uses the SAP Business API to integrate Siebel applications with SAP R/3.
For example, using BAPI-based integration, you can check an account's sales order history and you can submit sales orders in real time to SAP. You can submit and query sales orders individually or in batches by way of the Siebel Server.
- IDOC-based integration, which uses Siebel applications to integrate Siebel data with SAP R/3 data. IDOC Integration has been implemented using SAP's Application Link Enabling (ALE) interface.
For example, using IDOC-based integration, you can create Siebel Accounts from SAP Customers and Siebel Products from SAP Materials.
