  • Patent number: 9754000
    Abstract: According to one general aspect, a method may include replicating, to a software-as-a-service application, a plurality of pieces of master data from a physically remote master database. The method may also include converting the plurality of pieces of master data into one or more pieces of local data of the software-as-a-service application. The method may include changing one or more of either the pieces of master data or the pieces of local data. The method may further include synchronizing the changed pieces of either master data or local data between the remote master database and the software-as-a-service application.

  • Patent number: 9524239
    Abstract: Software solutions in a business software framework can expose their data via web services, which can readily provide access to all non-customized fields of objects included as part of the default installation of the software solution. However, customer-added extensions, such as for example custom fields and the like, added to customize the software solution for a specific business or business use can be difficult to add to web services by a typical business user who lacks technical abilities. Described herein are approaches to enabling addition of custom fields to web services via an intuitive interface that does not require technical understanding of the software solution, the business software framework, web services, etc.

  • Patent number: 8863005
    Abstract: A system and method for creating extension fields for business objects are described. In various embodiments, a system includes modules to display business processes and business objects thereof in graphical user interface screens. In various embodiments, the system propagates created extension fields to other business objects via metadata derived from selections in the graphical user interface. In various embodiments, a method for propagating extension fields from one business object to another business object via a data flow between the two business objects is presented. In various embodiments, the method receives instructions from a graphical user interface for the propagation of an extension field and sends instructions to a backend module to propagate the extension field from the source business object to the other business object.

  • Publication number: 20130127863
    Abstract: Various embodiments of systems and methods for determining optimal an sequence of status transitions for business objects are described herein. In one aspect, the method executed by one or more computers in a network of computers includes receiving a target status for a business object, identifying a source status of the business object, identifying a status schema including one or more transitions from the source status to the target status, parsing the status schema to retrieve the one or more transitions from the source status to the target status, generating a graphical representation illustrating the transitions from the source status to the target status, executing an algorithm upon the graphical representation to determine an optimal sequence of transitions from the source status to the target status, and processing the business object based upon the optimal sequence of transitions to attain the target status.
