Today, cross-system processes become more and more important for companies when it comes to connect hybrid or heterogeneous IT landscapes in the best possible way. The integration of SAP systems, cloud-based applications and third-party systems enables companies to automate their processes and, consequently, make them consistent. Data silos are avoided and process flows accelerated.
The connection of business partners, such as customers, vendors or authorities, optimizes data exchange and, as a consequence, the information flow across company borders. Processes, such as purchase-to-pay, can be digitized by means of a B2B solution. This increases the degree of automation of business processes and productivity throughout the company.
The FIS professionals use FIS/xee as well as SAP standard tools, such as SAP Integration Suite or SAP Process Orchestration (SAP PO), to connect your systems and business partners inside and outside the company and close the gap between on-premise and cloud systems in hybrid system landscapes. This enables consistent and automated processes as well as standardized master data. We make your company more competitive and therefore ready for the future.
The FIS SAP professionals accompany you on this path – from the first consulting and planning up to implementation – and are subsequently available to assist you in Customer Expert Service to adapt the digital processes to your everyday business life on a permanent basis.
These customers have already been convinced of our expertise in the field of Business Process Integration:
EDI and EAI – full integration with SAP interfaces
In order to connect different IT applications with each other or integrate business partners into corporate processes, API-based integration technologies (OpenAPI3, OData, REST) are becoming ever more important in the B2B environment in addition to a connection via IDoc or a standardized EDI interface (Electronic Data Interchange).
FIS offers you different technical basics for implementing these integration technologies. You can use FIS/xee to individually develop the appropriate process for your company. Moreover, the SAP integration solutions enable you to use SAP Content and learn the SAP Cloud options.

To ensure a secure transmission of data, certified communication methods are used, such as EDIINT AS2, X.400, SFTP, OFTP/2 or Web service.
Data formats and business processes that FIS implements are for instance:
- Electronic invoice formats, such as ZUGFeRD or Facture-x as well as xInvoice
- EDI formats, such as XML, UN/EDIFACT, VDA, ODETTE, ANSI ASC X.12 etc.
