  1. 1. HR Enabled MSS/ESS Landscape options 1 June 2009 Tony de Thomasis
  2. 2. Scope <ul><ul><ul><li>Improving the ERP system landscape to support upcoming MSS/ESS rollout </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Minimum work required to support a successful MSS/ESS rollout at AusPost </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Design features </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Simple design is best </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lower TCO and lower support costs is best </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Design must be SAP recommended </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Current support levels </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ECC6 EHP3 SP2 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>EP7.0 SP12 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Out of scope </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Other existing AusPost dual stacks (CRM, BI, SCM) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Future Portal strategy (and federation) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Other NetWeaver usage types (such as Adobe) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Conjecture about MSS/ESS being re-written in ABAP Web Dynpro </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Single Stack (Java) - such as Enterprise Portal Single Stack (ABAP) - such as ERP Dual Stack (ABAP + Java) - such as PI Definitions ABAP ABAP+JAVA JAVA
  4. 4. ESS/MSS Single Stack Approach Add MSS/ESS packages to existing Portal Infrastructure <ul><ul><ul><li>No new infrastructure to stand up (low TCO) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Current Production Portal instance is already HA/DR enabled </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Future proof – on the SAP recommended path </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ground work is set for federated Portal or introduction of NetWeaver CE </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Additional application specific workload for the Portal i.e. EP tied to ERP </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Must determine appropriate SSO and userid policies between ERP and EP </li></ul></ul></ul>SAP EP Java EP & EP-C SAP PI ABAP + JAVA Portal 7.0* ECC SAP ERP ABAP SLD
  5. 5. Portal 7.0* SAP ERP Portal 7.0* ECC/MSS/ESS SAP ERP PORTAL Dual Stack Approach Add MSS/ESS packages & Java to existing ERP Infrastructure <ul><li>No new infrastructure to stand up (low TCO) </li></ul><ul><li>Current Production ERP instance is already HA/DR enabled </li></ul><ul><li>Ground work is set for federated Portal or introduction of NetWeaver CE </li></ul><ul><li>All application work done in ERP system – no reliance on additional instances </li></ul><ul><li>No SSO or userid issues – users already defined in ERP </li></ul><ul><li>Not future proof – Contradicts current SAP recommendations. </li></ul>SAP EP Java EP & EP-C SAP PI ABAP + JAVA SLD ABAP + JAVA
  6. 6. SAP ERP PORTAL Enhanced Stack Approach MSS/ESS Add MSS/ESS packages to new Java common infrastructure <ul><ul><ul><li>Future proof – on the SAP recommended path </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No reliance on SAP Enterprise Portal for ERP content </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Must determine appropriate SSO and userid policies between ERP and JAVA </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lots of new infrastructure to stand up (high TCO) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New Java instance needs to be HA/DR enabled </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New SID to remember, patch and administer </li></ul></ul></ul>SAP EP Java EP & EP-C SAP PI ABAP + JAVA SLD SAP JAVA Java EP-C Portal 7.0* ECC SAP ERP ABAP
  7. 7. Approach Summary 0 + – + – + + + + – – – – Dual Stack – + Cost of establishing infrastructure + + Exploiting PowerVM (LPM, SPP, HACMP) + + Future Proofing solution – – Security (user master and passwords) + + Monitoring and alerting effort – – Complete size of database and OS used – – Ease of Backup and Restore – – Administration cost (tuning, system copy etc) – + + + + Single Stack Aspect Enhanced Stack Flexibility of landscape + Patching effort + System availability + Sizing effort + Setup/Configuration –
