PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, today announced its PROS Pricing Solution Suite™ (PPSS) 3.25 has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. The solution integrates with SAP NetWeaver, and delivers prescriptive analytics and real-time data science to help customers identify sales opportunities most likely to close, offers most likely to sell, and prices most likely to win.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that PROS PPSS 3.25 is powered by SAP NetWeaver.
Solutions powered by SAP NetWeaver can be more quickly and easily integrated into SAP® solutions environments. Customers can benefit from improved interoperability with SAP applications and with the large ecosystem of solutions that run on SAP NetWeaver. Choosing an SAP-certified solution can also help reduce overall IT investment costs and risks.
PROS is an SAP software solution and technology partner in the SAP PartnerEdge® program, a participant in SAP Store, and an OEM partner for the SAP HANA® platform. Since 2009, PROS solutions have achieved SAP-certified integration with SAP solutions.
“More than half of our B2B customers also run SAP solutions, and we continue to invest in our partnership with SAP to provide customers with cohesive solutions for their SAP environments,” said PROS Senior Vice President, Products, Oscar Moreno. “We are pleased our PPSS 3.25 is now certified as powered by SAP NetWeaver. The ability of PPSS 3.25 to run on SAP NetWeaver and interoperate with other SAP NetWeaver-based solutions will prove highly beneficial to our current and future customers. We believe one of the key reasons customers choose PROS is the depth of our integrations with the SAP ERP and SAP Customer Relationship Management applications.”
About the SAP-Certified Integration
With its customer-first approach, PROS provides a practical and prescriptive approach to integration with the SAP NetWeaver platform:
Improved integration with SAP CRM – For sales teams that use the SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) application, the new cross-system integration provides faster and more robust price guidance during the quoting process. Customers gain insights into optimal, real-time pricing for deals, revealing opportunities with the highest probability of closing and prices that are most likely to win.
Enhanced data tools – With the new extraction tools for the ABAP® programming language, PROS customers benefit from synchronized pricing configuration and reference data, enabling quicker insights on price optimization during the ordering and quoting process. PROS customers now have a simplified process for loading and maintaining critical information, such as currencies, exchange rates, units of measure, pricing condition types, condition tables and access sequences.
Direct data integration – In addition to PROS advanced integration content for SAP Process Integration technology, the new PROS adapter for ABAP provides another option for PROS customers to synchronize master and pricing data from SAP ERP directly to PROS, without the requirement for middleware.
PROS is a diamond-level exhibitor at the SAPPHIRE® NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference being held June 3-5 in Orlando. Customers can stop by booth 808 to learn more about PROS and its solutions integrated with SAP software.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...

Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
