Intercompany integration solution for SAP Business One

The Intercompany Integration Solution for SAP Business One was originally developed by SAP Partner CitiXsys, Inc. in the early 2000 timeframe and has been included in the SAP price list and supported by SAP. The tool became part of the SAP Business One Integration Hub which also included other pre-packaged integration solutions supported by SAP. SAP and CitiXsys will not continue their partnership beyond December 31st, 2022.

The Intercompany Integration Solution and other packages for the Integration Hub were all designed in and utilize the SAP Business One Integration Framework (B1if). SAP will continue to support the B1if but is cancelling support for these products which will continue to work but must be supported by you SAP Partner.

Required Actions

SAP Annual maintenance for perpetual licenses is calculated during Q4 and invoiced by your partner for each calendar year. Talk with your SAP partner now regarding any licenses purchased with the Intercompany Solution or Integration Hub so they can work with SAP to reduce your annual maintenance cost. Many partners bundle additional support services with the SAP annual maintenance and your savings may be offset by increases in partner costs for maintaining these components.

If you have an SAP Business One Cloud subscription with the Intercompany Integration Solution, this contract will be cancelled on your renewal date. We recommend you contact your SAP Partner 90 days before renewal date or as soon as possible to get an order placed as your contract will not auto-renew.

As of January 1st, 2023, all on-premise customers who have licensed the solution are still able to continue using it indefinitely as they have purchased a perpetual license. All cloud subscription-based customers can continue using the solution until their subscription term ends.

There are many alternate solutions which can meet consolidation or integration needs which are certified or connected and compatible with SAP Business One. If you wish to discuss alternative solutions, please complete a System Selection Explore form and indicated your requirements in the comments section so we can connect you to the most appropriate resource.

If you have any questions, please contact your active SAP Partner or send your information request to our general mailbox IBN@i-bn.net or call 678-627-0646.
