Installing the Linke AWS Connector for SAP


The Linke AWS Connector for SAP is an add-on that is written in the ABAP programming language. This makes it possible for the SAP- workloads to be seamlessly integrated into AWS as well as to archive documents directly on Amazon Web Services, in an easy, secure and cost-effective way. 

When the AWS Software Development Kits (SDKs) are implemented in Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP), a business is able to leverage the AWS services as part of the SAP- workload with the use of programming language and tools that they already have. 

The AWS Connector: Certified by SAP and available at the AWS Solution Space 

Companies that are carrying out their digital transformation find essential to streamline their daily management operations and, at the same time, take advantage of the simplicity, flexibility and efficiency of cloud environments. 

In this context, the new solution AWS Connector for SAP, officially certified by SAP and AWS, help SAP companies to extract, analyze and modify the data on their SAP systems on the AWS cloud platform at a big scale, through the integration of Datalakes, Data Repositories or Machine Learning. 

Highlights of the Linke Connector

Since the Linke AWS connector for SAP is an add-on that connects SAP systems to the Amazon S3 via the Archivelink interface, a business can rely on the safety and durability plus cost-effectiveness of S3 for SAP data. Besides that, users will benefit from the larger storage that increases according to need. 

The connector is also flexible and cost-efficient and does not need additional investment as no middleware or extra hardware is required. 

In fact, at Linke we are proud of helping companies worldwide on their migration initiatives by integrating innovative solutions just as our add-on for SAP systems. Among different market areas such as industry, tourism (travel) and utilities, our clients have experienced improved efficient and agility. 

This is the case of our most recent case study with the Canadian electric company FortisOntario and their new e-billing solution connecting SAP to Amazon Web Services through the AWS Connector for SAP product that has enabled the company to save approximately 40% annually.
