Workflow

Is it possible to implement Workflow in the SAP .NET Connector environment?? Instead of using XI.

Thanks

Sean

    SAP .NET Connector is a programming tool; it's not made for modelling business processes. XI and it's tools and also the future technolies like VisualComposer are much better suited for those tasks.

    My understanding is that SAP .NET Connector simply provides access to SAP data via RFC's.

    I further read that in release 4.7, these RFC's

    are exposed as Web Services and SAP .NET Connector

    is no longer required.

    After posting this question, I also read that

    workflow in a .NET/SAP environment is

    possible through the use of M'Soft BizTalk.

    Thats what the documentation I have tells me.

      That's true, but using .NET Connector might have advantages:

      - You have better VS and .NET integration than with pure WebServices.

      - The performance of RFC is better.

      - With NCo you can choose if you want to use Soap or RFC. If you need higher speed or connect to older systems you can switch to RFC and use Soap otherwise.

      This might be also true. It's clear that SAP's offering in this area is XI and Microsoft's offering is BizTalk. It's of cause up to you which product you prefer and which has the better integration to your SAP landscape.
