ALE or EDI ?


Hi Guru's ,

One of our client wants to exchange transactional data(Purchase Order and Invoice related dat only) with one of their client .

Both the parties have SAP system behind their own firewalls.

Business data related to purchase order and Invoice is only to be exchanged .

Now I have few questions :

1. What would be the ideal approach ALE or EDI as both parties have SAP in place?

2. Is it advisable to go for EDI considering only exchange of business data for PO/Invoice ?

3. What is the Extra cost if going for EDI ?

4. If via ALE-Idocs system X sends PO for material ABC (matnr in their SAP system X)...once it reaches system Y . Do the system Y needs to have the same MATNR ? If not than how we usually caters this type of situation ?..

How we take care of master data sent via Idocs in other system ?

Regards ,
