Layer 2 GmbH
We had a scenario where our clients have thousands of external party vendors/committees who regularly sync SharePoint data. Managing thousands of external parties can never be possible without using a Layer2 cloud connector. We managed the local network sharing and SharePoint integration by using the Layer2 connector. Layer2 is convenient with a large amount of data as the per-user license is high.

I would recommend using NetWeaver Process Integration with an SAP application only. SAP ISU/ECC can integrate with the PO very well to interact with non-SAP systems. It's best suited for extracting data from SAP systems into flat files, encrypt it, and sFTP to any 3rd party vendor.

It works great for integrating SAP applications. Without the box connectors and integration flows, the speed of development is fast. However, It has challenges in connecting other non-sap applications.

Layer 2 GmbH
We had also used Microsoft One Drive as a syncing tool but it requires Office365 for managing and syncing data across thousands of vendors which was not practically possible to manage users on Office 365. Layer2 resolved this issue by having 3 user licenses and they are enough to periodically sync all external parties' data with our SharePoint online.
