Using the Siebel Connector for SAP R/3
The Siebel Connector for SAP R/3 supports both synchronous and asynchronous transactions across application boundaries. The resulting consistency of data provides efficient coordination between front and back-office operations. For example, sales and service professionals can enter sales orders in Siebel applications and receive real-time feedback on inventory availability from the SAP R/3 database. The sales or service professional can then fulfill the sales order using SAP's Sales and Distribution module in the back office, without ever leaving the Siebel application interface.
