Hopefully some of you already tried our existing SAP NetWeaver BW on SAP HANA with SAP BusinessObjects BI or SAP ERP on SAP HANA or SAP CRM on SAP HANA Trial.

… but did you know that the SAP ERP on SAP HANA Trial also includes several fully configured Fiori applications ?

So in case you are interested to see Fiori live in Action or would like to simply learn how Fiori can help you, simply get your own SAP ERP on SAP HANA System and see it for yourself.

So how can you get access ?

  1. You will need a Amazon AWS Account for this. So in case you do not have one yet – sign up here : http://aws.amazon.com
  2. You then navigate to the SAP ERP on SAP HANA Trial page in SAP HANA Marketplace : Try SAP ERP on HANA
  3. You order your systems and follow the steps – which you can also see in the “Getting Started Guide for SAP ERP on SAP HANA Trial“.
  4. Enjoy the system.
  5. Leverage the great Demo material that the team prepared to show the functionality : SAP ERP on SAP HANA – Scenario Guide

So how much will the system cost me ?

  • The software comes for free as a 30 day trial
  • You will have to pay for the Amazon EC2 infrastructure, which is around 3.20 USD per hour when the system is running. Remember that you have control when the system is running and when not.

Here some additional resources:

Enjoy it…

    Hey Ingo,

    Thanks for this post. Nice that SAP is making it easy to try and test Fiori.

    One remark:

    – I had already seen this solution in the CAL solution list. But never thought it would do it for me as the description, I believe, needs a bit of work. It doesn’t clearly describe what is in it.

    Questios:

    – What happens after 30 days? Renewable?

    – Can this be a BYOL ? As I partner, I can have my own licenses. I would like to use mine and avoid this 30 days renewal cycle.

    – SAP sales teams have been talking about a Demo data set for ERP on HANA. (Last workshop my colleague was told that if we had an ERP on HANA, they would install this demo data set. Do you have any idea of what that data set is? Is it the same that is included in this one ? (I imagine it is).

    – Given the huge dataset (and the code crap included), I imagine we will not see an IDES version of ERP on HANA ehp7, right?

    Thanks again

    Leo

      Hi Leo,

      You are right, currently we do not have a good business content overview on each solution listed in CAL and this is something we plan to work on and make this available on our SCN page going forward. The goal would be to provide a quick technical/business overview on what each solutions consist of.

      1) After 30 days, extension could be possible on a case-to-case basis and you can request for the same by opening a ticket on the component BC-VCM-CAL or post a new question in the CAL discussion forum (just like ehat we are doing right now). But, as the name implies – Trials are just meant for try ‘n’ buy so you won’t be able to do much with a trial solution in terms of configuring/testing you own scenario, or deploying additional stuff on top (that’s not allowed).

      2) The is a seperate partner subscription offering in place wherein, you as a partner can buy a paid subscription with BYOL model. Obviously, there you won’t have any restrictions related to trial offerings and you can pretty much do anything with the system and extend the subscription for as long as you want. If you want, I can connect you with one of our Partner Services Delivery (PSD) colleagues who can assist you with it and share additional details ?

      3) I’m not sure what data set you mare talking about here ? Usually CAL trial solutions come with some pre-configured content but, this cannot be exported/imported into customer’s systems. However, the other way around works for CAL paid subscriptions – i.e. youo can import your own data into a CAL paid solution to test your scenarios for example adn then export your configurations as well later.

      4) We already have an IDES solutions available with CAL but it’S IDES for ERP with MaxDB.

      you can see a complete list of Free Trials Offerings and Paid Offerings available with CAL on our SCN page.

      Free Trial offerings via SAP Cloud Appliance Library

      Hope this helps!!

      Hello Leonardo,

      – What happens after 30 days? Renewable?

      This is a trial offering, so after 30 days those licenses expire. In case you need a system for a longer time you can subscribe to the SAP Cloud Appliance Library which works in a “bring your own license” model.

      – Can this be a BYOL ? As I partner, I can have my own licenses. I would like to use mine and avoid this 30 days renewal cycle.

      see above.

      – SAP sales teams have been talking about a Demo data set for ERP on HANA. (Last workshop my colleague was told that if we had an ERP on HANA, they would install this demo data set. Do you have any idea of what that data set is? Is it the same that is included in this one ? (I imagine it is).

      haven’t heard this.

    Hi,

    I have a client who needs to deploy Fiori on an existing ECC 6 platform. Can I use the “Cloud Appliance Library” to test this upgrade?

    To summarize, I need an ECC 6 instance in the cloud without Fiori. Then I need to access the server with a remote connection to upgrade it with Fiori. Is it possible?

    Thank you in advance.

      Hello Marc,

      you could subscribe to the SAP Cloud Appliance Library and leverage the pre-installed systems that are available and yes the SAP Cloud Appliance Library does offer a ECC 6 appliance.

      regards

        Hi Ingo,

        Thank you for your prompt answer.

        By “leverage the pre-installed systems”, do you mean connect with “remote desktop connection” for Windows and manipulate the installation of the SAP product (ie modify the files on disk, etc)?

        Best regards,

        Marc Muller

          Hello Mark,

          when you subscribe to the SAP Cloud Appliance Library (cal.sap.com) you gain access to a library of systems – such as BW, CRM, ERP.

          these system work in a “Bring your own license” model and as soon as you applied your own license to the system you can also change settings in the system.

          hope this helps

            Hi Ingo,

            Before subscribing to the SAP Cloud Appliance Library, I want to make sure that I can connect to a machine with “remote desktop connection” for Windows where the SAP product is installed. Do you confirm?

            Regards,

            Marc

              Hello Mark,

              that always depends on the overall landscape. For example the ERP on HANA Trial is a Linux based environment so you would not connect to it using Remote Desktop but instead you would use putty for this. You would in addition configure items like your SAP GUI on a local system to connect to the system.

              So how you reach out to the system always depends on the overall landscape

              regards

    Hi Ingo,

    this statement from the tutorial document does not work for me at all:

    If you have not changed the predefined domain and ports, you can use the default access:

    https://vhcalhdbdb.dummy.nodomain:1081/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell/shells/abap/fiorilaunchpad.html

    I havent done any former steps from the tutorial, since I understood FLP + content must work out of the box. E.g. Im using http, since I havent done SSL configuration. I cant remember to have configured an own domain so this should work as mentioned? Thanks,

    cheers
