An Application-to-Application integration framework in the cloud environment is proposed. The methodological demarche is developed using a data symmetry approach. Implementation aspects of integration considered the Open Data Protocol (OData) service as an integrator. An important issue in the cloud environment is to integrate and ensure the quality of transferred and processed data. An efficient way of ensuring the completeness and integrity of data transferred between different applications and systems is the symmetry of data integration. With these considerations, the integration of SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer with S/4 HANA Cloud was implemented. View Full-Text
