I have preferred to post this blog here in ABAP space, because I believe I can easily find here, SAP dinosaurs like me 🙂
1. Google is not used in an R/3 project:
Because Google was not established yet 🙂 . We need to wait 6 years that Larry Page and Sergey Brin to establish Google in 4th of September in 1998. We often use our notes on papers, pals, debug or self trials to explore any information.
2. 3,5” floppy disks or commonly diskettes are used in R/3 projects:
There were no SD cards, cloud spaces or memory sticks. We have only 720 kb or1,44 MB of floopies to store any piece of data. To be honest we did not have any fancy data at all 🙂
3. Lotus 1-2-3 or Quattro Pro is used in an R/3 Project:
Excel was not so popular before year 1995, so Lotus 1-2-3 and quattro pro were the key spreadsheet solutions those days.
4. Remote connection or job is not acceptable in R/3 project:
Since there were no public remote connection facility in early 1990’s. So we need to work long long days in offices during go-live preparation and cut-over phases.
5. Help.sap.com is not used in an R/3 projects:
Because it was not established yet. We have Help documentation CD’s provided by SAP software, which were also come with CDs. This documentation should be installed on network to search for help J
There are many differences, but these are my favorites, please share yours:)
