One DMS , Multiple SAP systems. can it be done ?


I have the following scenario : 5 ECC systems all with different configuration. 1 ECC system is having DMS configured. Intention is to create a document and link it to multiple objects across the 5 systems.

As an example ..... on each system there is a vendor master record for CompanyA. the vendors are configured differently and have different numbering. the vendor provides a quality certificate that gets stored in DMS and the object links need to point to the vendor records - but these are on different ECC systems.

Can this be done ? if so - can someone point me in the right direction ?

    Hi Graham,

    If you are open to consider alternatives to SAP DMS, yes it can be done. SAP Extended ECM would be one of such alternatives and supports out of the box the concept of cross-application business workspaces. A workspace is pretty much like a folder where you can collect object specific content e.g. vendor documents, purchase order document, etc. Originally designed to provide a consolidated customer business workspace for SAP CRM and ECC scenarios, this same concept can be used to string multiple SAP systems together even though if the SAP object have different number ranges.

    Please contact me directly at if you like to discuss this further. We have done a number of complex cross system integrations and I am sure we can help you design and implement such a solution that will meet your requirements.
