Difference between Technical & Business Systems??

Hello Experts,

What are the differences between Technical System & Business System in SAP PI??Why we need to create Technical & Business Systems??


Technical system is the representation of the physical system. Like ,It has an IP Address to track.

Business system is the name that we give to a technical system.

For example an SAP system with IP 123.345.56.67is used to store the HR data of a organisation.

Then we should create a technical system for that PHYSICAL system.

and you call it with a Logical name, say HR_DATA ..This is the business system. This way you are abstracting the technicalities of the system..

Tomorrow, if the organization replaces the SAP system with an Oracle system(Which obvisouly has a new IP address), then a new technical system is to be created, but the business system still remains the same..Hope this example helps you understand the concept of TS and BS.
