You want to quickly install SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1 and see how it works?
Take a look at this guide! For a typical host and a standard installation scenario, you will be able to install, configure and run SAP NW PI 7.1 from scratch in about 3-4 hours (whereas a considerable amount of time will be the time waiting that the software is downloaded and installed without any action from your side). This includes the setup of a simple demo scenario. To see the whole installation and demo set up process, open this demo recording.
You can use the demo scenario described in the guide and shown in the recording, to test if your SAP NW PI 7.1 installation was performed without errors. The scenario (when it runs) copies a file from one file directory to another directory by making use of the PI file/FTP adapter.
Ok, you might think, it is to break a butterfly on a wheel installing and configuring a complete SAP NetWeaver PI – – just to copy a file! But I guess you got the idea: this is just the beginning. As you see that your SAP NW PI 7.1 installation works, you are free to create any scenario you like to connect any kind of applications, systems or standards with each other, by making use of the wide spectrum of SAP NW PI adapters.
By the way, take a look at the SAP NetWeaver PI simple use cases. This document tells you how to extend the simple file adapter scenario by additional steps that illustrate and show basic functions of SAP NetWeaver PI like, for example, routing and mapping.
Just start and see how it works!
