  • Connectivity between SOA and SAP was unstable.
  • Delivering projects required heavy involvement from the ABAP team.
  • Lack of reusability resulted in rebuilding integrations with every change.
  • Seamless transition from the existing state to the future state with cloud connectivity to external touchpoints (IoT, third parties) was required.
