In the present era, where companies are
struggling to unite various heterogeneous environments in their organizations
and maintain a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) NetWeaver comes as a solution
to all their problems.

SAP NetWeaver is the latest advancement in the mySAP
Technology, which was developed as an Artificial Intelligence (AI) shell that
accepts standard comments, literally as they are spoken, by domain experts.
Another unique feature of NetWeaver that makes it stand out amongst other
software technologies is its modularity. The knowledge engineer can more easily
create "digestible chunks" of modules or sub-dependency networks, which help to
keep the overarching dependency network from becoming potentially
incomprehensible because of apparent complexity. This text is aimed at
explaining SAP NetWeaver architecture and its interoperability with
Microsoft.NET and IBM WebSphere. In addition it aims at bringing out all the
advantages that are associated with SAP NetWeaver.
Net Weaver in simple words is an application and Integration platform in which
Web Services play a major role and which is open for Non-SAP applications and
platform. It is used by organizations to improve productivity and enhance
efficiency by making all the resources that are available in an enterprise to
work collectively. The SAP customers to bring heterogeneous environments at one
platform use SAP NetWeaver. In addition, it enables customers to use the already
existing systems without putting in much investment. Further in the near future,
the various corporate sectors and Organizations have to take a decision for some
common platform; could be Microsoft .NET, IBM Websphere or SAP NetWeaver.
Irrespective of the choice that they make, SAP NetWeaver is the one that
integrates with all the three technologies.
As its name suggests, Enterprise Core will contain
the inward, enterprise processes that make the enterprise work. The
outward, collaborative processes will not be included in Enterprise
Core. They will be included in what is called Enterprise Extensions.
SAP NetWeaver attains the process of integration by integrating all the
available heterogeneous resources of the existing system and unifying them into
a homogeneous form. This integrated information forms the basis of total,
comprehendible, focused solution as desired in an enterprise.
