CF2SAP was created by Shane Mitchell and Angus Scott-Knight.

Shane and Angus own and run DBS Business Systems, a SAP Integration and Web Development Consultancy based in Auckland, New Zealand. DBS was founded in 2000 and services a number of SAP and ColdFusion clients worldwide.

DBS were early pioneers of SAP-Web integration, having developed one of the first ever web front-ends to SAP Project System (PS) in 2001. DBS have collaborated with US partner Competitive Edge International on a number of SAP integration projects over the years, including bi-directional interfaces to SAP PS and PM.

After using third-party products to integrate web sites with SAP for many years, DBS chose to develop CF2SAP when it became apparent that a specialist ColdFusion to SAP product needed to be developed by ColdFusion specialists for ColdFusion specialists. CF2SAP Version 1.0 was released October 2008.
