Ascential Software Corporation, an enterprise data integration leader, announced that the Ascential Enterprise Integration Suite received SAP integration certification for its Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI) plug-ins to the SAP NetWeaver open integration and application platform. Ascential Software's data integration solutions are designed to help customers realize the full potential of their investments in SAP solutions by easing data movement from non-SAP enterprise applications and legacy sources into virtually any SAP application.

The Scotts Company, a world leader in do-it-yourself lawn and garden consumer products, needed comprehensive, up-to-the-minute information on product demand and movement. By combining SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) with enterprise data integration solutions from Ascential Software, Scotts gained greater visibility into the requirements of its retailers, allowing the company to slash inventory and boost cash flow. "Ascential Software and SAP provided us with the solutions we needed to gain an accurate picture of our consumer business across the extended enterprise," said Deb Masdea, director of business information and analysis at Scotts. "Ascential Software and SAP were extremely responsive, and both companies took extra steps to ensure that the solution provided us with the maximum return on investment."

Ascential Software's solutions provide companies with flexibility and choice for extracting data from and loading data into the SAP R/3 software solution and the mySAP Business Suite family of business solutions. Integration certification for the Ascential Enterprise Integration Suite Version 7 supplements Ascential Software's existing certifications for SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) Staging BAPIs and IDoc (Intermediate Documents) integrations, and extends the strong relationship between the two partners. SAP and Ascential Software have a reseller agreement under which SAP resells Ascential Software's technology for loading non-SAP data into SAP BW.
