    Hi Ryan,

    The focus is more towards hybrid these days and this feature aligns with that strategy and allows IBM ahead of the game.

    Dear IBM,

    To strenghten the IT security the use of SNC for RFC connections with our new S4 system has become mandatory. Therefore we need to have this implemented for the B2B Integrator . Could you please prioritize this?

    For a company like Honeywell which is so focused on security and have very stringent policies to connect within an organization. The S&C connectivity has become need of the hour. We badly need this feature to make connectivity with our organisation with ERPs secure as per the security guidelines of the company. This has to be high priority

    Hi Ryan, This is one of the mandatory security requirement in hybrid cloud implementations where B2BI in a public cloud and SAP in corporate datacenters. Please let us know if there is any possibility to prioritize this. Kishore

    We have evaluated this request and that this time we unfortunately have to decline, due to other priorities in our backlog. We will continue to monitor for customer interest, but as of now we haven't received enough feedback and demand from additional clients requesting this feature to prioritize it over other planned activities. We'd love the opportunity to discuss what is on the roadmap for 2020.
