About this book

Introduction

Read in this book, why
· EDI projects with R/3 would often cost five to ten times as much as necessary
· IDocs and ALE are the ideal bridge between R/3 and legacy systems
· IDocs are the framework for a fully automated business workflow
In the technical part of the book you will learn, how to
· customise the R/3 IDoc engine
· interface IDocs with standard converters for X.12, EDIFACT, VDA etc.
· design your own IDoc structures
· write IDoc handler programs in an hour
· trigger IDocs from any R/3 application via messages or workflow
· set up automated workflow based on IDocs
· set up ALE scenarios for automated data replications
This book is for whole R/3 teams to teach a common knowledge when it comes to interface design.
· R/3 project managers to learn about the benefits of IDocs and ALE
· R/3 steering committees to estimate the true costs of EDI and interface development
· R/3 developers to learn how interface can be designed "in the minute"
· R/3 coaches to use as teaching and presentation material for interface designs
SAP R/3 made an old dream come true: enter your business data once in your computer and trigger all the following activities automatically, send the data to another computer without typing them in again.
