Alternative for IPC

My company has started implementing CRM and we want to know what are all the other options to get pricing other than IPC? We heard that IPC gives lot of problems and so want to try out all the other options?

Please send me all your suggestions.

Thanks,

Ramesh

    Hi Ramesh,

    Generally the issues in the past with the IPC are generally around bad set-up and not scaling when required.

    With the IPC now part of the Netweaver platform makes it a lot more stable and takes away some of the set-up that consultants were getting wrong.

    You basically cannot price in CRM without the IPC.

    Cheers

    Andrew

      We're using CRM 5.0 with embedded IPC and haven't really had any major issues. I agree with the "debug" flag comment, for large Price List jobs IPC runs out of memory. Simply turning this off resolved the problem. Also make sure you're on the latest kernel since SAP has been making lots of fixes with regard to memory handling.

    Ramesh, since IPC is required for CRM to perform any calculations I am afraid no alternatives are available to my knowledge. As of CRM 5.0 IPC even comes embedded in the WAS both in the ABAP stack as well as the java stack. Again IPC is a though application which is becoming more and more stable but I would not see any alternative in the case you need calculations and/or variant configuration. Hope this helps and please assign points where you see fit. Tiest.
