Ariba Integration Toolkit
With the deployment of Release 11s2, all previous versions of the Ariba Integration Toolkit are deprecated. Customers are encouraged to upgrade to the Release 11s2 version of the Toolkit as soon as possible, but must upgrade to the latest available version within 18 months of Release 11s2 general availability.
