IBM Lotus Notes access for SAP solutions is designed to integrate and extend common end-user tasks in Lotus Notes into SAP business processes. Based on IBM and SAP's existing integration tools, available since 1999, this new solution expands this integration into calendaring, time tracking, contact management, report generation, approval workflows and other common business tasks. By making it easier to access the information they need, this enhanced integration with SAP can help increase productivity and lower costs.

“Many of our largest enterprise clients have chosen both Notes and SAP as strategic platforms,” said David Via, vice president and senior industry analyst for Wolcott Group. “There is a lot of value in exposing information housed in the ERP system directly in the collaboration client. In the past, this could only be accomplished through custom development. Lotus Notes access for SAP solutions will enable us to deliver better solutions with reduced effort and investment.”
