What Is the Cookbook?
To support the release of SAP ERP on SAP HANA, I want to tell you about the SAP ERP on SAP HANA Cookbook, a Web site that helps you get this new product.The Cookbook guides you through the update, migration and deployment of SAP ERP on SAP HANA and explains the underlying technology, business value and adoption path you need to take to get SAP ERP on SAP HANA. If you are a ramp-up customer, we provide you the information you need to get started.
Understand Your Path
The SAP ERP Cookbook gives you the background information you need to understand the SAP ERP on SAP HANA product, how it works with your
system landscape, and what decisions you need to make before you begin the deployment. If you are a new customer, you can deploy SAP ERP on SAP HANA directly onto your systems. If you are an existing customer, you need to upgrade your ERP systems to the current version of SAP ERP before you can migrate to SAP ERP on SAP HANA.
Once you know your adoption path, use the SAP ERP Cookbook to learn how to prepare for the deployment. These preparation tasks will ensure that you execute the SAP ERP on SAP HANA deployment as quickly as possible with a minimum of errors and disruption.
One of the ERP Cookbook’s biggest values is in the step-by-step instructions it provides when you start your install. Including information on starting
and stopping the SAP system, SAP directories and system security on Windows, the ERP Cookbook makes the deployment process straightforward and as error-free as possible.
Check, Configure, Confirm
Once the deployment is complete, you need to check the integrity of the install and configure it correctly. The SAP ERP on SAP HANA Cookbook
tells you how to do this and more, including backingup the system and SAPHANA database; installingthe SAP license, activating HANA content; configuring the Transport Management System; and implementing ERP ABAP add-on components.
