We need to provide document management feature in SAP enterprise portal. The requirements are users should be able to create
folders, rename folders, delete folders, create, upload, delete documents such as word, pdf, excel etc. Also we would want
some kind of an access restriction to be imposed based on certain roles.
I think SAP Knowledge Management is mostly used for integrating heterogenous repositories and for providing search capabilities. In our case we do not require search capabilities and we only need to store different kinds of documents created by users in a folder hierarchy similar to that of windows explorer and provide required access rights. Can external applications like MS Sharepoint or any other application be used if there are no requirements for search or integrating with heterogenous repositories. What are the considerations for deciding what approach to be followed.
Thanks in advance,
