      Nice screenshots on the configuration part . please clarify

      a) the configuration done in the portal will it get reflected back in R/3 or anywhere?

      b) when the sourcing is created as project - is this standalone system or integrated with ERP? If RFP how the structure is created in ERP and how & where it is linked?

      I have seen the webcast / related link on the project sourcing but not clear how the esourcing is talking or integrated with project management modules like SAP PS / cProjects / PPM / cFolders.

      Appreciate your clarifications.
