This IBM Redbook features a collection of knowledge gained from IBM and SAP system experts who work with customers that use SAP applications on the IBM System i platform with i5/OS. It is written to assist SAP basis consultants and other IT professionals with the implementation of a total business solution, consisting of System i servers, i5/OS Version 5 Release 4 (V5R4), DB2 UDB for i5/OS database, and SAP products.
The ideas in this book apply to the entire spectrum of business solutions within the mySAP Business Suite. These solutions share SAP NetWeaver, the common technical application platform that includes the SAP Web Application Server and SAP Business Information Warehouse.
The first part of this book features an overview of SAP applications and landscape options for i5/OS followed by a discussion of SAP and i5/OS implementation and infrastructure.
Then, we provide information about operational topics such as administration, printing, and how to avoid problems. After that, there is a detailed discussion about availability and backup and recovery and a section dedicated to performance topics. The book ends with an examination of the different ways that you can exchange data between your SAP applications and other applications.
