  • This is the R/3 product diamond. These are the applications we support. All of the applications are integrated. R/3 replaces the majority of best of breed systems so you business is streamlined. One vendor supporting best of breed solutions. In addition we provide industry specific solutions for several of the industries, and all industries benefit from one another in that we keep incorporating requirements from all industries into the core product.
  • SAP is moving towards new dimensions Industry-specific business solutions New functionality: SAP Customer Relationship Management initiative SAP Supply Chain Management initiative SAP Business Intelligence initiative New end-user experience: EnjoySAP These new dimensions are built upon a sophisticated and reliable technological infrastructure, the SAP Business Technology which we discuss in this presentation [we talk about the big blue circle (excluding core applications)] SAP Business Technology is serving SAP as well as SAP’s customers as open, flexible and integrated environment
  • Software-oriented; Object-oriented; Modulized; Layerized Open Interfaces for business integration Rapid Software Development & Prototype Easily Customizing Implementation Run Across Platforms Evolving Architecture for New Technologies
  • System Platforms for the R/3 System The R/3 System is fully compatible with all important UNIX platforms and Windows NT (Microsoft) as well as with AS/400 and S/390 (IBM) You can also use database systems such as Informix Online, Oracle 7, ADABAS D from Software AG, IBM's DB2/6000 and Microsoft's SQL Server 6.0. The graphical user interface of the R/3 System (SAPGUI) is also compatible with desktop systems such as OS/2 PM, OSF/Motif, Macintosh and Windows.
  • System Landscpe Assuming 400 concurrent users, A three system landscape architecture is recommended, which includes development, test, and production system. Hardware Requirement The minimum requirement of a R/3 system is 256MB RAM, 20GB HD, and 3*RAM+500MB Swap space. For 400 users, it might require at least 3CPU, 3GB RAM, and 50GB Disk space. Detail sizing should be proposed by hardware vendor, while SAP will help customer to verify the result. Besides, please take SAP benchmark document as reference. If customer would like to use WebGUI, an ITS server is required, which is simply a NT server with 128MB RAM and Pentium 200 MHz CPU.
  • EnjoySAP is an initiative that was launched in the middle of last year by SAP. It’s not just a marketing initiative, it’s SAP’s new strategy that puts the user in the spotlight. The aim is to make the software user-friendly. It must: be easy to learn be intuitive and quick to use be easy to adapt to the user’s requirements look good! In short, working with the software should be fun. List of supported SAP GUIs SAP GUI for HTML SAP GUI for the JAVA™ environment SAP GUI for the Windows ® environment
  • Native GUI to run the R/3 transactions Designed along modern ergonomics studies Complemented by additonal graphic tools SAPGUI supports more than 30 languages Double-Byte Character-Set Integration of Several Languages in Real Time Several users can work in an application using different languages, as the R/3 System updates the data that was entered in different languages at runtime. The R/3 System is delivered in most languages, including Kanji and Mandarin (the system assigns two bytes to each character). t
  • 7 7 The Quick Sizer translates business requirements to technical requirements The business requirements are stated by the customer using either user-based sizing (applicable for small-businesses and medium-sized businesses) or more accurate quantity-structure based sizing which results in a customer load profile and in technical requirements (processing performance and main memory requirements of application servers and database server) Based on the technical requirements, the hardware partners propose a system configuration The sizing process is an integral part of AcceleratedSAP and is used throughout the Realization phase including Configuration and the SAP GoingLive Check The sizing methodology is developed in cooperation with the hardware partners based on the joint experience collected by productive customers and tests.
  • This is the R/3 product diamond. These are the applications we support. All of the applications are integrated. R/3 replaces the majority of best of breed systems so you business is streamlined. One vendor supporting best of breed solutions.

  • Basis Tools: ABAP Workbench The ABAP Workbench (formerly ABAP/4 Development Workbench) is an integrated set of development tools, which allow implementation of critical client/server applications, or modification of existing, standard R/3 modules. ABAP stands for Advanced Business Application Programming and represents SAP 愀 programming language. Key features of the ABAP Workbench include: Standardized Access to Databases - called ABAP/4 Open standard query language (SQL). Direct Database Access - Programmers can code database-specific SQL statements. Infrastructure Communications to External Systems and Programs- Via RFC Via Object Link Embedding (OLE) International Capabilities Documentation ABAP Dictionary (formerly ABAP/4 Data Dictionary) - the core component of the ABAP Repository. Data Modeler - display and maintain all SAP data models and develop new models. ABAP Editor Screen Painter Menu Painter Function Library - write new functions and look up information on existing functions. Monitoring Tools ABAP Debugger Monitoring tools (continued) - SQL-Trace, ABAP Runtime Analysis, Computer Aided Test Tool (CATT) Workbench Organizer Object Browser Data Browser Application Hierarchy ABAP/4 Query
  • Customizing Tool: IMG Customizing: Maintaining tables Implementation Guide (IMG) The IMG acts as a checklist of the Customizing activities that your enterprise should complete for an R/3 implementation project. The IMG is hierarchically structured . The structure of the IMG and the IMG management tools (like resource management and the MS Project interface) help your project team to work through the Customizing activities in a rational sequence The Enterprise IMG contains all Customizing activities you need to implement application components in an enterprise You can open Customizing transactions from the Enterprise IMG or from the SAP Reference IMG You can create R/3 Customizing projects to help structure and manage the implementation work. You can create and store cross-project documentation . You can make an IMG for each project by selecting subsets of the components in your Enterprise IMG . From a Project IMG you can work on Customizing transactions, project documentation, cross-project documentation, and project management information .
  • With the Computing Center Management System (CCMS) you can monitor, control and configure an R/3 System. You can use the tools provided to analyze system load and determine the resource consumption by the various system components. The CCMS provides you with a series of graphical monitors and administration functions: Starting and stopping the R/3 Systems R/3 System monitoring and analysis Automatic reporting of system alerts Dynamic user distribution R/3 System configuration: Editing system profiles (not authorization profiles) Processing and controlling background jobs, scheduling database backups.
  • A new system monitoring structure is available from Release 4.0 using Transaction RZ20. This new structure allows centralized monitoring of many system parameters and includes the following: Links to existing analyses Open interfaces that can be used to incorporate other system monitoring tools (including non-SAP tools). Allows monitoring of other R/3 Systems provided an RFC connection with the other system is possible and configured. It is also possible to define your own monitors in the new infrastructure. These can be used to provide specific people with only those alerts they are interested in. All threshold values can be maintained using simple Customizing settings. These can be valid either for one monitoring attribute or for an entire class of monitoring attributes. How full are various directories on the operating system level is an example of a typical monitoring attribute. You can define the alert condition for a specific directory using an individual threshold value or the threshold value of the "percentage_used" group (for example, change from green to yellow when 95% full)
  • EDI stands for Electronic Data Interchange and describes the electronic exchange of structured business data between different applications. EDI architecture consists of: EDI-enabled applications: They allow business transactions to be processed automatically. The IDOC interface: This was conceived as an open interface and consists of the intermediate documents and the corresponding function modules. The EDI subsystem: This converts the intermediate documents into EDI messages and inverse. SAP does not supply this element of the EDI architecture. The main component of the IDoc interface is the IDoc type. An IDoc is an SAP standard that specifies the structure and format of the data to be transferred electronically. It was developed with the standards EDIFACT and ANSI X12 in mind. IDocs are identified uniquely using a control record. The data records form the centerpiece of the application. The status records log the status of an IDoc on its way from the application to the trading partner and vice versa.
  • SAP Business Connector Automatic conversion of RFCs, IDOCs, BAPIs into XML messages and vice versa Available for R/3 3.1 onwards Free download available at now Benefits for SAP customers Seamless integration of different IT architectures Extend traditional EDI infrastructure XML-enabling of SAP solutions Tight integration with SAP R/3 and New Dimension Products Internet enabling of SAP-solutions
  • The ITS consists of the WGate (W = Web) and the AGate (A = application). The WGate communicates with the HTTP server, and the AGate communicates with the R/3 application server. A Service the Internet Transaction Server provides for Internet users consists of: Administering logon information to the R/3 System (name of system, user details) Running a transaction in R/3 or calling a function module or report Converting R/3 data (screens or lists) to HTML pages
  • The Internet Transaction Server (ITS) links one or more HTTP servers with one or more R/3 Systems. Internet and Intranet users can run Web-enabled transactions, Web-enabled function modules, or any ABAP reports in R/3 using the ITS. Windows NT Server 4.0 (Intel), the HTTP server and ITS can be installed only on one computer. HTTP server software supported is Microsoft Internet Information Server and Netscape Enterprise Server. ITS server contains WGate and Agate. If the WGate and the AGate are to be installed on two different computers, note the following requirements: The AGate requires a Windows NT 4.0 Server (Intel) The WGate must be installed on the same computer as the HTTP server. UNIX operating systems can also be used instead of Windows NT 4.0 (all SAP-supported derivatives).
  • How is the service and support organized? SAP International Subsidiaries (local) Training Consulting Local support Regional Service & Support Center (regional) Service and support for Europe, America, Asia and Australia Secondary processing of support requests (7 x 24h) Headquarters (central) Development Strategic service and support planning Coordination of service and support activities
  • 4 The Going Live check occurs shortly before an R/3 System is used productively. This test checks once again that the system is able to meet the requirements set.
  • An Early Watch session recognizes performance bottlenecks in an R/3 System and proposes suitable counter-measures.
  • SAP provides a proven, cost-effective sizing methodology that ensures a balanced set of needed hardware components. Cooperation with hardware vendors assures balanced and accurate recommendations. Thanks to online access to SAP’s advanced sizing tools, SAP customers enjoy up-to-date sizing recommendations based on simple business-oriented figures, such as the number of users to be supported. All sizing parameters and recommendations are readily available in the installation process. When it comes to installing the system, SAP offers a complete, all-in-one procedure that guarantees fast installation . This installation process includes the unattended installation and user language enabling of presentation clients, for example. For small and medium-sized businesses customers may even choose between various preinstalled and Pre-Configured best-practice systems. During the configuration phase, the application software is tailored to customers’ needs based on industry-specific best-practice reference models. The central analysis and optimization of business processes is supported by visual modeling of business processes and complete documentation of the business process mapping for future use. Graphical business form layout eases the personalization of the software to the needs of different user groups. In many cases, customers want to perform a data migration from existing legacy systems to an SAP application. SAP supports this effort with complete planning and resource checking capabilities for the migration process. Data is converted and transported from existing legacy systems, even if the migration has to take place in a heterogeneous environment. Automatic consistency and completeness checks guarantee that the migration can be transparently documented and audited. To ensure smooth productive operation, a testing phase completes the realization process. SAP provides planning and execution support for the entire test process, which encompasses business process testing, performance testing, and volume and stress testing, including the integration of test documentation. Recording functionality simplifies the definition of test tasks. The structured organization of these test tasks, automated test runs, and regression testing combined with user-friendly logging functions and reporting formats ensure comprehensive and streamlined testing.
  • SAP Business Technology also supports the process component of TeamSAP [Address AcceleratedSAP in an extra presentation]
