SAP Process Integration - Content Certification (NW-XI-CNT)

In addition to integration technology, SAP delivers "PI-Content" to facilitate the implementation process and thus reduce the TCO for the customer. This content includes data structures, interfaces, mapping programs, integration processes, and integration scenarios, and is synchronized with the related business applications and versions. Additionally, PI-Content is a key differentiator of SAP's integration solution and therefore SAP is expanding the content objects available to SAP customers by initiating this certification program.
To ensure a standardized and harmonized development process for the implementation of content objects, SAP has initiated a certification program for PI-content from ISVs.

Getting Started

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) highly recommends that ISVs and partners, who are interested in certifying an integration of their product with SAP solutions, begin with our page Getting Started with Integration and Certification that explains the SAP ICC services and describes the process how to obtain them. This page helps you select the correct integration scenario and contains technical information, streaming media presentations, step-by-step guides, and much more.
