EtQ Announces Tools for Integration Management with SAP

FARMINGDALE, NY (05-20-07): EtQ has announced the release of the EtQ Connector for SAP, a comprehensive integration tool that links EtQ's Quality Management System with SAP.

SAP is a leading enterprise business solution. It provides comprehensive solutions for managing customers, employees, financials, operations, services, products, and suppliers. EtQ is a leading enterprise quality management solution. It offers a wide range of modules for automating key quality processes to ensure compliance with regulatory standards.

The EtQ Connector for SAP enables direct calls to SAP BAPIs via the SAP Java API, or via third-party EAI tools. Calls can be scheduled or event-driven. The API includes methods for establishing connections and handling SAP data structures. EtQ integrates with SAP to accelerate the transfer of quality data to and from SAP and to eliminate gaps in the quality system.

"Using the EtQ Connector for SAP, businesses are able to leverage the power and capabilities of SAP within their EtQ Quality Management System," says Morgan Palmer, Chief Technology Officer at EtQ. "EtQ is able to push and pull data from SAP to EtQ, and also integrate any third-party EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) tools, such as Microsoft BizTalk or WebMethods, further enhancing the visibility of data across the enterprise."

The EtQ Connector for SAP is part of EtQ's Integration Management Utilities, which provide an enterprise quality management solution that integrates information silos such as MES, ERP, MRP, LIMS and more, making timely coordination and communication easy to achieve and removing any information gatekeepers.

EtQ's development of SAP integration tools continues to grow. Plans to further enhance the capabilities of the EtQ Connector for SAP are underway, including support for SAP NetWeaver, support for SAP XI, SAP Portal, and integration of SAP xApp with EtQ to create a truly seamless link between EtQ's Quality Management System and SAP.
