Where’s the best place to get information regarding GTS?
I’ve seen a number of posts looking for information on where to obtain information on GTS configuration.
So I thought it may be helpful to list some links to the product documentation, config guides etc these should be a good starting point to getting to know the SAP Global Trades Services product.
GTS Live Blog: http://scn.sap.com/blogs/GTS
The SAP GTS Support team have created a live blog. The blog aims to provide up-to-date information to help customers get the most from the GTS product. The blog is updated on a regular basis to include details of the latest released note corrections and KBAs, information about legal changes effecting GTS, newly developed or changed functionality and links to new documentation.
Please bookmark and follow the blog to receive notifications, and share with your GTS colleagues and friends. Feel free to leave comments if further clarification on any issue is needed, or if you have any suggestions on content or ways to improve the blog.
Firstly for an overview of the GTS product, this is a good starting point:
Along with some good Product Information there are also some Customer Success stories.
