Solution Architecture

We believe Salesforce is going to be THE engagement layer on top of SAP in the next 20 years

Today, most modern enterprises rely on a de-facto enterprise software solution architecture, built on SAP and Salesforce. However, to allow end users to truly benefit from the Salesforce and SAP implementation, the two systems need to be deeply connected and synced in real-time, as enabled by Overcast .

System of Engagement ​(Salesforce)

Where business is run and ideas are born

  • Dynamic business processes ​
  • Derive competitive advantage​
  • Easy to configure and customize even by non-developers

System of Record (SAP)

The backbone of business

  • Infrequent/incremental changes
  • Authoritative data source
  • Stable and defined global processes​

The SAP + Salesforce + Overcast solution architecture allows you to engage your customers in new and meaningful ways: provide your sales reps the tools to service your customers faster and better, design integrated service experiences or configure powerful self-service portals for your sales agencies and end-customers.

For companies, upgrading to S/4HANA, the new SAP + Salesforce + Overcast solution architecture eliminates the need for using or re-implementing weak SAP modules and products. Instead, you can implement best-in-class Salesforce-based solutions e.g. in the areas of business workflow, field service, call centers or self-service communities, and seamlessly integrate them with SAP.

Salesforce is a powerful platform that offers benefits beyond CRM. Declaratively implement any type of business application without coding and within weeks. So, see S/4HANA upgrades as an opportunity to design optimized comprehensive solutions by leveraging the strengths – and avoiding the weaknesses – of both SAP and Salesforce and increase overall customer satisfaction and the value of your solution.

Helping companies discover and realize their full digital potential

Vigience is a specialized Salesforce ISV partner that enables advanced, highly connected Salesforce solutions. We provide “true real-time connectivity” between Salesforce and any on-premise systems-of-records (SOR). We believe that the state-of-the-art enterprise software architecture in the coming decades will consist of the Salesforce platform as a dynamic system-of-engagement (SOE) on top of SAP S/4HANA as the system-of-record (SOR) that powers all key business processes. We further believe that one can only empower people to work and interact in new ways when frontend applications like Salesforce are deeply integrated with core backend processes and data. To make that all possible, Vigience develops, implements and distributes its unique product called “Overcast”.

The Vigience team started as a spin-off from the former SAP Technology R&D team. Its founders worked many years at SAP in charge of developing global SAP products in the space of API development, mobile infrastructure and mobile business applications.

Vigience is an engineering-driven organization and its employees are top software developers and consultants with in-depth developer-level knowledge of Salesforce & SAP. Most are either former SAP developers & architects from SAP development, are former Salesforce architects or come from other strong engineering backgrounds.​ Vigience developers and consultants work with Vigience customers, their implementation partners and Salesforce employees on a daily basis. They not only develop & implement Overcast but also often act as solution architects in some of the most interesting global enterprise software projects in the world today.
