Environment Configuration

Microsoft SQL Server and Management Studio installation

ERP Bridge supports potentially every on-premises ERPs.

If you have an ERP based on Microsoft SQL Server (including Express version) or SAP Hana DBMS, you can create a new database for ERP Bridge on the SQL server or SAP Hana instance.

It's possible to use a docker container with a SQL Server or SAP Hana image inside.

If the ERP relies on a database other than SQL Server or SAP Hana, our recommendation is to use an instance of Microsoft SQL Server - including Express version - to create a linked server to the ERP database. In the table below you will find the official documentation for each database:

Both SQL Server and SAP HANA do not need Linked Server to proceed.

ERP Bridge database creation on Microsoft SQL Server

After installing Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, we create a new database.

  1. Right-click > New Database

  2. In the Database name box, enter ERPBridge

It follows a diagram of how the integration technique via ERP Bridge works.
