SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (MII) was designed to integrate shop floor processes with SAP ECC. SAP MII integrated with various types of systems, delivering actionable information that can help improve productivity, efficiency, and profitability. SAP continues to support MII, but there haven’t been substantial updates to the solution for more than five years, and it is not unreasonable to expect that SAP will initiate end-of-life process for it soon.
SAP MII, which enterprises have used for more than a decade to build web apps for their production environments, but this older technology may be limiting your operation from optimizing its processes – and the apps you created with SAP MII won’t work in S/4 HANA or another modern or cloud environment.
You can delay upgrading your SAP ERP system – and your ability to operate more competitively. Although SAP MII web apps work with your current SAP ECC platform, you have limited capability to change your processes and keep up with the competition.
You have the option to develop new apps with traditional development processes, starting from square one and rewriting code. However, even if you take this route, your apps may still have limited features and no offline capabilities.
With Pillir’s EdgeReady Cloud’s low-code/no-code development platform, you can rebuild and refactor your apps quickly to modern apps. Any ABAP logic you built into your app can easily be converted to objects in Pillir.
Pillir’s low-code/no-code platform provides you with easy-to-use, graphical tools that streamline development and help you take apps to market quickly -- 20 times faster than with traditional development processes. And when your team has the apps they need sooner, productivity and efficiency improve faster as well.
Pillir also provides you with:
You'll need to identify and analyze the processes that are running today on the SAP MII systems. This would probably be a good time to collaborate with the relevant line of business and functional architects to decide what processes need to be created in a modern, mobile-friendly technology
Creating the business applications using a low-code rapid application platform is simple. You can use the pre-built templates or start from scratch. All the required integrations and actions are already built into the system and creating the apps is as simple as dragging and dropping the different modules and visually connecting them and creating the business logic.
Tools such as our Business Process Modeler, App Modeler and App Designer enable you to make critical connections between your app and business processes, provide a consistent user interface across multiple devices, and customize your app.
You don’t have to limit operational efficiency and your ability to innovate because your team relies on web apps created with SAP MII. Using Pillir’s low-code/no-code platform, you can quickly and easily build new apps – 20x faster than with traditional development processes -- and you can even leverage pre-built templates based on industry best practices.
Moreover, when you’re ready to move to SAP S/4 HANA or other modern IT environment, apps created in Pillir will be ready to move with you.
The Pillir platform is a powerful portion of our overall enterprise suite of solutions. Using their platform, we’ve developed and deployed high-quality web and mobile applications that provide great usability, specific features, and capabilities that much higher-cost options typically deliver. The native, real-time, in-and-out integration to our core S/4HANA SAP transactional system is one of the key strengths of Pillir and the speed and agility in which we can get these solutions deployed.”
