Hi Experts,

I referred most of the blogs related to HCI vs PI, but I'm not clear on the below points.

We are on SAP PI 7.0 and planing for upgrade. we have interfaces with IDOC /SOAP /FILE /JDBC adapters.

---> Is there any difference between standard content available in PI and HCI?

--> Can we import the interfaces from standard PI to HCI directly?

---> Can HCI handle BPM's?

---> Can we write UDF's / ABAP / JAVA / XSLT mappings in HCI?

----> Is customer or SAP is responsible for deploying certificates / set-up connectivity?

----> What is the main advantage of HCI when compared to PI?

       We have standard content available in PI /

       PI also supports Iflow's /

       we can also connect to cloud applications with the help of standard PI adapters.

As of today HCI have very limited features when compared to PI, so how can we recommend this to a customer?

To do so we should have some valid points to highlight about HCI.

I request you to give your valid inputs on this.
