The Information Integration layer makes both structured and unstructured information available in a consistent and accessible manner. In this layer, SAP Business Intelligence handles structured information. This component extracts information from a variety of systems, consolidates it, analyzes it, and draws conclusions.

that allow its users to manage vast amounts of accumulated knowledge within an organization. Users can search for information, index information, restrict or authorize access to information, and provide version managementwith data originating from file servers, web servers, webcasts, Lotus notes ETC. Finally, SAP Master Data Management ensures information integrity across the business network. It provides central master data maintenance, data harmonization, and consolidation.

processes to run seamlessly across heterogeneous IT landscapes. Previously known as Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) technology, this layer is now part of, and delivered by, the integrated technology platform, which provides for both internal and external process integration. It consists of SAP Exchange Infrastructure.

SAP Web Application Server. It provides a complete infrastructure to develop, deploy, and run platformindependent, robust, scalable Web services and business applications. The application server supports both J2EE and ABAP in one integrated and flexible architecture. The SAP Web Application Server forms the foundation of all SAP solutions and all customdeveloped applications.

SAP Enterprise Portal

SAP Enterprise Portal runs on the SAP J2EE Engine, a

component of the SAP Web Application Server. The SAP J2EE Engine manages the portal infrastructure, supporting Web services and the integration of heterogeneous applications in the portal environment. The SAP J2EE Engine makes the portal highly available, secure and scalable across several machines.

The portal platform contains the components like

Portal Server
Content Management and Text Retrieval and

Information Extraction (TREX) component of the Knowledge Management platform Connector Framework etc.

Using iViews, the Portal Server brings content to end

users, enabling them to collaborate with each other, to search internal and external sources, and to access structured and unstructured information through the Knowledge Management component. iViews use the SAP Connector Framework to connect to various backend systems including SAP and nonSAP.

The Portal Runtime is the enhanced runtime

mechanism for launching iViews. It supports the tools for creating iViews and provides the capabilities required for running them.
