SAP is going the SOA path now and offers a central repository, the so – called SAP Enterprise Services Repository. This is a central container including all SAP enterprise services and their metadata. Based on ARIS for SAP, this repository can now be used to map SAP enterprise services with concrete company process steps.

After discovering and analyzing processes and services, you generate a blueprint with concrete service assignments and requirements. The new release of ARIS for SAP allows a unique integration with the Enterprise Services Repository and enables process-driven SOA based on SAP ESR.
