Enterprise Search despite SAP for a centralized and intelligent information retrieval in the intranet
Although SAP offers a comprehensive full-text search with TREX, it is recommended to implement an enterprise search solution despite SAP.
SAP is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that occupies a central place in many organizations. TREX is a powerful solution for searching for information within SAP.
However, often SAP is not used in all areas of the company. In addition to SAP, other applications are also used in companies such as emails, file servers, websites and collaboration platforms. How can employees who use SAP as a central system find and access content which is stored in other data sources?
Furthermore, it often happens that SAP is not used in all areas of the enterprise. Nonetheless do situations arise in which information from SAP is required for a work process. For example, invoices or order forms are often sent by email as attachments. How can non-SAP users access this content?
