Internet Transaction Server

Today, the power of the Web and its ability to deliver business solutions throughout and beyond the enterprise has been acknowledged by most companies. As Web initiatives are undertaken, many companies have also come to realize the unique challenges associated with the Web environment in terms of real-time business process integration while avoiding duplicative efforts. The World Wide Web offers an unique way of extending SAP transactions and customizing the interface to SAP's comprehensive business logic to meet the needs of diverse user constituencies.

SAP Internet Transaction Server (ITS) was the first approach of SAP to extend business applications to a Web Browser or the Internet by converting SAP dynpro screens into HTML format making it possible to access SAP systems with user-friendly Web technology. SAP ITS as middleware component provides Web access for several SAP products like SAP ERP, SAP Supplier Relationship Management (SRM), SAP Employee Self Services (ESS), SAP Enterprise Buyer Professional (EBP).
