The Quest for searching thorough advice on best-practices SAP / SharePoint interoperability

What started out as a rather simple inquiry question on the SDN forum SAP NetWeaver .NET Technologies, is now transforming in a more in-breadth discussion on getting best approaches to apply within SAP / SharePoint interoperability. André Fischer, SAP employee, posted a direction to the whitepaper Interoperability between SAP NetWeaver Portal and Microsoft SharePoint Technologies. Although a good overview document of the possible approaches, that is also its shortcoming: it's an overview, but it does not give the reader solid advice on best approaches to apply in specific situations. Not strange, that is not the purpose of this whitepaper. And also, the answer on such questions is for a major part influenced by the particular enterprise situation, thus difficult to generalize. But when involved in such a concrete enterprise situation, you are in need of such guidelines and advice.
