Question and Answer
Q: How to you move some existing customizations to trial servers?

A: Set up a secure VPN; becomes an extension to your data center
Q:  what kind of “sizing” I’ll need  for 1-2 Users?
A: don’t have to worry about sizing; good for a couple of users

A: You can use this as your development environment; can use CAL as your first step and export

      Dear Tammy,

      thanks for the great article. I tell you I would like to set up a Demos System to leverage the following SAP Solutions:

      Business Objects:

      ·        BO Platform

      ·        Design Studio

      ·        Analysis for Office

      ·        Lumira

      ·        Roambi



      Fiori Launchpad

      Do you have an idea if I can get all of this from CAL, I currently don't find a description of the included tools on each BO or HANA Package.

      As probably not all are included in one package do you have any recommendation of which could be the best approach? Maybe is also possible to make a self-installation of the clients, but then additional Licenses will be needed?

      Thank you very much for your answer.

      Best Regards
