SAP Gateway for Microsoft

SAP Gateway for Microsoft (GWM) is a product that simplifies the integration of SAP Gateway based services into Microsoft products. GWM provides an interoperability layer that makes sure that applications can communicate in a secure, reliable and scalable manner with SAP backend systems.

The GWM add-in for Visual Studio provides an extensive OData browsing functionality, a set of templates that can be used to create Contact, Calendar or Workflow-based scenarios in Microsoft Outlook 2010 and 2013 and also provides a generic service generation for any Visual Studio C# project.

The resulting project can either be used as-is (“code-free” development), or can be modified / extended to address the exact customer requirements. At the same time the created project can leverage the enterprise ready functionalities that are generated by the GWM add-in. Security, Single Sign On (e.g. X.509, SAML 2.0, …), centralized configuration (e.g. controlled via Group Policies) or logging (e.g. integration in Solution Manager) are some of the features that a .NET developer can benefit from without having to know the details.

With Service Pack 3 of SAP Gateway for Microsoft, the integration of SAP data into Microsoft products is extended to the Microsoft Azure cloud. Users can authenticate against their Azure Active Directory and from there seamlessly access and work with data on their SAP system. The data from SAP can be exposed via SAP Gateway, but also from SAP HANA or SAP MII.

In the latest version of SAP Gateway for Microsoft, Service Pack 4, we continued the integration in Microsoft Azure and also added additional supported "providers". Whereas in previous version you needed to connect to SAP Gateway, you can now also connect to services exposed via the SAP Mobile Platform, SMP, and by this leverage all the existing functionalities that are already available with SMP. So now using the SAP Gateway for Microsoft Add-in for Visual Studio you can use the existing templates to connect to services exposed from SAP Gateway, Microsoft Azure or SAP Mobile Platform and generate enterprise ready applications out of that.

Getting Started/Related Resources

For the most common Outlook integration scenarios (Workflow, Contact and Calendar) templates are provided out of the box.

These templates can be used to easily create enterprise ready solution, like Credit Memo Approvals:

SAP Contact maintenance:

Or SAP Time Recording leveraging SAP Fiori services

With Service Pack 01 we also introduced an add-in to Microsoft Excel which makes updating and create data from Excel simple:

And with Service Pack 03 we are connecting to Microsoft Azure & Office 365

Another very popular usecase is the combination of Office 365 and SAP Fiori. Using SAP Workflows (e.g. via the SAP Fiori My Inbox scenario) and SAP Gateway for Microsoft, Workflows can now also be easily integrated in Outlook
