We are in the process of researching enhancements for search features available in SAP R/3 4.7.
One of the options is the SAP NetWeaver Application Server Enterprise Search's Search Engine Service feature with which I believe any SAP application (including SAP R/3) can perform fuzzy search for their business objects for instance Customer master data.
I have seen an article on SDN which talks about enabling the same for mySAP ERP 2005. Can someone tell me if the same is advisable for SAP R/3.
Here's the link to the article for reference.
Any pointers on this would be appreciated. In addition to these pointers to any other options available within SAP R/3 to enable fuzzy search for customer and it's attributes (address etc.) would be useful. Please note we are not looking at using third party licensed products for the same yet.
