Introducing the Ariba Open Platform

Globalization and digital transformation are placing new demands on your organization, requiring you to react rapidly to constantly changing business needs and market conditions. Shouldn't the technology you use be able to keep up with this revolution?

The Ariba Open Platform enables you to innovate with speed, agility, and flexibility, staying a step ahead of your competition. You can now extend your existing SAP Ariba solutions or create powerful new solutions to meet your domain-specific requirements, tailored to your unique needs. 

The key components of the Ariba Open Platform are the Solution Extensions and Open APIs. In addition, you have self-service access to a Developer Portal with a rich set of developer resources and tools.

For Customers

Solution extensions enable business users to extend existing Ariba solutions without needing IT or professional services. There are three types of solution extensions: UI extensions, schema extensions, and business process extensions.

With these extensions, you can:

  • automate business processes faster, with the ease of drag-and-drop tools and out-of-the-box templates, without relying on external solution providers
  • integrate your procurement business processes across multiple systems, including built-in applications
  • empower business users in the organization to do more without waiting for IT support
  • improve productivity and efficiency by accessing solutions developed by various solution providers across the globe through the Open APIs

 

For Partners

The Open APIs empower our partners to build new apps and integrate with other solutions. Partners can leverage their deep domain knowledge to create domain-specific solutions to satisfy a customer's unique needs. These could be solutions across technology, content, industry, or region.

Using Open APIs, our partners can:

  • develop expertise to build apps and services to help businesses of all sizes across industry segments
  • scale solutions easily and integrate with other enterprise cloud applications
  • grow their businesses with access to a broad set of customers across the world’s largest network of buyers and suppliers
