One way of obtaining more value from your SAP system is to make the back-end functionality it provides accessible to the desktops of more knowledge workers. The “Lotus Notes access for SAP solutions” (NaSs) feature set from IBM is a collection of packaged scenarios that enables end users to manage their contacts, track their time, request leave, process workflow items, generate reports, schedule meetings, and maintain their personnel information directly in the SAP system from their Notes desktops. This article provides a high-level overview of the features of NaSs, gives you a quick look at how they are installed, and explains how to get to the LotusScript source code so you can customize or extend the features.
