IBM Lotus Connector versus Konplan XINotes - ZeNotes
Does somebody know what the difference is between IBM Lotus Connector and Konplan XINotes - ZeNotes? First of all there is a big difference in costs but I am sure there must be a very good reason for this.
We are looking for a solution that can help us implementing the following scenario. (We have SAP XI, ECC 5.0-NW2004):
We create opportunities including one or more projects in a Lotus Notes application. A project deliverable can be one or more samples. We would like to be able to create a sample order in SAP ECC 5.0 (in back- or foreground) by clicking a button in the Notes application. By clicking the button, a subset of Notes data has to be send to ECC 5.0 being input fields for sample order entry.
We prefer a call of a batch input Z-program we created for transaction VA01, prefill the data from Notes and complete the sample order in R3 and save it. The created R3 order number has to be send back to the Notes application.
It would be nice if doubleclicking the SAP order number in Notes would show a subset of SAP R3 or transaction VA03. A requirement is that users do all the work in the Notes application, they will not logon to SAP.
1. Is this scenario technically possible?
2. If yes, what software do we need => IBM or Koplan?
Thanks for all your help in advance
