This IBM Redbooks publication features a collection of knowledge gained from IBM and SAP solution experts who work with customers that use SAP R/3 on the IBM eServer iSeries server. It was written to assist R/3 basis consultants and other IT professionals in implementing a total business solution consisting of iSeries and AS/400 servers, OS/400 Version 4 Release 5 (V4R5), SAP R/3 Release 4.6C, DB2 UDB for iSeries database, and complementary solution products.

The primary content of this book is divided into three parts:

Part 1, "Understanding the solution", presents the concepts and other basic knowledge necessary to understand the structure, features, and functions of the SAP R/3 solution on the iSeries server.

It contains detailed guidance and explanations of the specific tasks associated with the implementation.
