RPMGlobal says it has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to its SAP partnership and providing interoperable, enterprise software solutions to the mining industry after receiving an SAP integration certification for its enterprise product offerings.
The integration green light was provided by SAP certifying that RPMs enterprise solutions can integrate with SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud Extended Edition using standard integration technologies. These certifications further support RPMs development of cloud enabled solutions, the company said.
RPM and SAP have been working together for well over a decade and RPM secured the latest designation following a detailed process whereby separately deployable components were put through stringent qualification procedures to earn the integration approval, it explained. This entailed RPMs integration connectors and product architecture being scrutinised by SAPs development laboratory.
The SAP certification is a significant indication of the technical alignment and interoperability capabilities between the solutions, according to RPM. It will will enable the exchange of information between SAP and RPMs enterprise product offerings which span the entire mine lifecycle, from design and scheduling, through to maintenance and finance.
Paul Beesley, RPMs Chief Technology Officer, said the SAP certification was a significant endorsement of the companys quality technical infrastructure which underpins its enterprise offerings.
RPM remains committed to a robust software integration strategy that builds complimentary products to support the SAP technology stack, he said. This enables our customers to have a smooth and direct flow of business data between SAP solutions and our software offerings so its very rewarding to receive this additional certification.
With more mining operations implementing digital transformation initiatives, connecting disparate systems to foster the exchange of critical information is an industry imperative, Beesley added.
With enterprise integration forming a core part of RPMs philosophy from the beginning, Beesley said the recent certification builds upon the companys ongoing commitment to working with SAP.
SAP remains the industry standard for Enterprise Resource Planning software used by mining companies, he said. This certification ensures our current and future customers can integrate operational technology with business processes to achieve a connected mining enterprise that provides a single source of truth across the organisation.
