this basically depends on your scenario.You can check conditions like.

1.If you want to send data in any format then go for proxy and if fixed structured data is required go for idocs.

2.since in proxy adapter engine is not required its improve the performance for huge volume of data,but if again you want to extend or store data further go for idocs.

3.IDOC can be triggered immediately and also by background job, Proxies can be triggered like that . It all depends upon the requirement.
