    connecting ERP to Ariba Network

    Frédéric Henri Expert

      Hi all,

       

      we are looking to connect our ERP system (SAP) to the Ariba Network (buyer account) to send POs to suppliers (and exchange with our suppliers)

       

      Most preferably, we would like to avoid installing the adapter as we already have Tibco in place and this is the preferred way to transport information

       

      My question is that :

      - does Ariba provide web services we can call to send/receive information ?

      - do we have to code all the (cxml) messages that are sent to the Network or Ariba provide some tools/framework other than the ERP adaptors ?

       

      Thanks,

      Fred

          This would have to really be two options either Open Adapter or Customer
          Built Adapter

          Open
          Adapter would handle the bulk of their mapping concerns to account for IDOC to
          cXML.
