Integrate and migrate SAP systems using APIs as intermediaries between your backend and frontend experiences. Then build integrations once and deploy them anywhere: on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment. Change implementation goals easily without reworking”, they detailed in Mulesoft.
