ERP – Simple interface implementation thanks to modular principle

Interface realization for ERP systems – What is to be considered?

When a company introduces a new ERP system, this usually affects existing system landscapes and structures. Integrating the new solution and ensuring a continuous and transparent data flow is a particular challenge. The interface realization is a complex matter with many ERP systems.

To achieve the required integration of processes, applications and data, modern ERP systems ensure the realization of a good interface connection.

The goal is to ensure the data exchange between existing programs and machines. These interfaces make it possible to further process all generated data centrally in an ERP solution and to evaluate it comprehensively.

Standard ERP systems often rely on standard interfaces – other interfaces only possible with additional programming

There are basically two options for setting up interfaces between ERP and third-party systems in standard ERP systems. Standard interfaces can often be accessed; however, these are often only set up for certain third-party systems of partner companies. These are mostly specific providers of ERP-related software solutions, e.g. MES, PDM or CAD software. But not all companies work with exactly these products.

With standard ERP systems, companies often have to have the necessary interfaces additionally developed. But this is a very time and cost intensive process.

Therefore enterprises do not come frequently around it to let develop new interfaces for certain software solutions. However, this is a time and cost intensive process.
