How do non-SAP users find information created in SAP by other users?
SAP is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that occupies a central place in many organizations. However, often SAP is not used in all areas of the company. Also, not every employee uses SAP in his or her work processes. Nevertheless, situations do arise in which the information required for a work process from SAP is needed. For example, how can a team assistant without access to SAP Materials Management quickly provide information about the date of the last purchase order? How can an employee in Warehouse Logistics view existing purchase orders? What happens if the sales manager needs quick access to all deliveries in the current month for his balance sheet?
Experience has shown that an information exchange such as this often still takes place according to the principle of the “silent mail” – employees ask employees and search in various data silos. This costs time and means loss of information.
