ITK End of Life-3

SAP Ariba Integration Toolkit Is Nearing End of Support

Do You Have a Plan For What's Next?

The SAP Ariba Integration Toolkit (ITK) is a solution that allows buying organizations to integrate their ERP systems with an SAP Ariba cloud solution to exchange master and transactional data via CSV file upload and download.

SAP has announced the end of support for the ITK, which means that it will not be supported by SAP support or consulting teams after December 31, 2023.  Before this date, only critical security issues will be addressed. Furthermore, ITK has been removed from SAP's official download sites, with no exceptions.

Start Building Your Migration Path

The migration from SAP ITK to SAP BTP Integration Suite necessitates the use of migration tools developed in collaboration with SAP's partners.

These tools are designed to accelerate SAP customers in their journey to the cloud. Various partners have developed tools that address different aspects of the migration process, such as message mapping migrations, channel configuration details, XSLT mappings, synchronous configuration with request and response mappings, and template-based migration approaches


Nova Southeastern University (NSU) is a private research university based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It offers professional degree programs to more than 20,000 students. 
NSU replaced their existing Ariba ITK with SAP BTP Integration Suite to enhance procurement and supply chain processes, aiming to improve integration performance, scalability, reliability, data exchange, process automation, and accommodate high-volume tasks, while also ensuring support for future ISBN functionality integration.
