SAP HCI (SAP Cloud Platform Integration)
SAP Cloud Platform Integration (aka SAP HANA Cloud Platform Integration or SAP HCI) is a SAP’s strategic secure cloud-based integration platform with a strong focus on process and data integration across domains (SAP Financial Services Network (FSN), SuccessFactors, Cloud for Customers, Ariba, Business by Design, Travel On Demand etc.). It provides you the Process Integration (HCI-PI) and Data Integration (HCI-DS) capabilities and enables you to connect your cloud applications quickly and seamlessly to other SAP and non-SAP applications (on-cloud or on-premise) without extensive coding. This integration as a service solution from SAP can help you integrate your business processes and data in a secure and reliable environment. Also, another important point to understand is that cloud integation is not SAP Process Integration on cloud. It is a new product that runs on SAP Cloud Platform. Cloud Integration is designated as IPaaS — Integration Platform as a Service.
