What is an integration certification?
Integration certification is an open program where we certify the application or solution built by SAP Partners or Independent Software vendors (ISVs). Software solutions that have SAP-certified integrations are based on SAP-endorsed integration technologies and integrate via stable interfaces. ISVs also gain the necessary consulting and test system access to complete their certification projects. The integration certification helps to ensure high-quality integration of third-party products and a smooth flow of business data through SAP software and SAP components via open interfaces. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly Apply for Integration Certification.

Why integration certification?
Certified integrations are generally more release-stable, pre-tested by SAP, could lead to reduced implementation time and in most cases also ensure smoother release upgrades for SAP customers. SAP-endorsed Integration scenarios offer a variety of opportunities that enable certification of third-party products, including:
- SAP predefined integration scenarios and certification - Offers well-defined, standard scenarios for third-party integration, including details on documentation, interfaces, and release information.
- Third-party defined integration scenarios and certification - Evaluates and tests integration scenarios developed by the ISV, based on an Integration Assessment which verifies that the integration uses SAP-endorsed integration technologies.
- ABAP add-on certification - Certifies third-party applications developed in ABAP through a special certification process that uses the ABAP Add-on Assembly Kit.
