When implementing Coupa, companies typically need to build a number of interfaces with their ERP system to extract supplier, account, and vendor information. The integration consumes time and budget—and involves risk from new and untested connections.
KPMG helps make integrations simpler, faster, and more reliable with its CoupaLink-certified Cloud Integration Framework—complete with data mapping, error handling, and process management. KPMG’s Cloud Integration Framework is a services accelerator that aims to reduce the time and effort required to integrate Coupa to SAP ECC, as well as streamlining the integration footprint and complexity. As part of an implementation engagement, KPMG will update the Framework assets to align with the customer’s business and technical requirements. Once the implementation is completed, the supporting Framework assets may be transitioned over to the customer and the customer will be responsible for supporting, maintaining, and enhancing it.
With KPMG’s pre-packaged iPaaS integration solution, you can quickly transform, validate, and integrate data into Coupa without impacting your ERP application or end users. KPMG helps you to:
- Reduce integration development time considerably by leveraging a library of design, development, test, and deployment assets
- Decrease the cost of integration services versus traditional integration methods
- Increase application reliability with tested interfaces
- Enable robust and real time error validation and resolution to manage exceptions
- Streamline the integration footprint and complexity
- Gain visibility, control, and governance over the integrations
