Innovative IDoc Monitor with SAPUI5 App

Vienna, 30.06.2017

User-Friendly Monitoring of SAP IDoc / EDI Data Exchange

Based on innovative IT technologies, the EPO IDoc Monitor enables business users to monitor the electronic exchange of business data with internal partners or external partners such as customers and vendors.

With the EPO IDoc Monitor, electronic business documents that are, for example, subject to electronic data interchange (EDI) are displayed in an extremely clear and tangible way. All SAP users can easily familiarize themselves with this new software tool. In-depth technical skills are no longer necessary to be able to monitor IDoc-based IT interfaces.

Web-Based User Interface Available on Mobile Devices and Within SAP

By applying the HTML5 technology that is also used for SAP’s Fiori and SAPUI5 apps, the status of SAP interfaces can be checked from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs. Consequently, the user can intervene, if necessary, from remote locations or when travelling. The SAP authorization system ensures that only the user with the right to see the IDoc data will have the relevant access to them or be allowed to change them.

After obtaining the EPO IDoc Monitor, both business and IT users will no longer think of using the SAP transaction BD87, which is the basis for EDI/IDoc processing in SAP.

In order to get a quick overview of all inbound and outbound business documents, the SAP user will enjoy the convenience of navigating through the HTML5 app, which also can be accessed through the SAP GUI user interface.
