we're planning to set up Strategic Sourcing with SRM 7.0, i.e. Bidding Engine and LAC. My question is, how to set up the access for vendors/bidders from outside the firewall?
SRM 7.0 requires a portal, which is set up in the intranet behind the firewall. Do bidders access this portal through firewalls and DMZ, if yes, how to secure this access? If not, do we need a second portal in the DMZ, or do bidders access the BE via something other like BSP?
Any help is appreciated and awarded.
