IS CRM AND ECC 5.0 INTEGRATED
I want to know CRM is integrated with ECC or we need to integrate with XI
CRM could be used as a Stand alone system if you are doing a Scenario like
Activity and Opportunity Management which does not require integration with any other SAP or Non-SAP system.
But if you are doing Campaign Management,Digital AssetManagement or any other depending on the dependency CRM can be integrated with ECC(conditions
transactional data replication), BI (for data mining tools), SCM (APO to do the realtime availability check) usually Middleware is used as a tool for communication between these systems.
XI is more functional when the given landscape has hetrogenous systems, If you are depending on a Legacy system for Masterdata in the landscape.
Please reward points.
