The goal is to create a publication describing how to modernize SAP workloads and run them on IBM Power Systems using theoretical knowledge, team experiences, utilizing new technologies and documenting them by way of sample scenarios.

This publication utilizes any available documentation, hardware and software resources to:

+ Document guidelines to help the reader modernize SAP workloads to run on IBM Power Systems.
+ Document guidelines to help provide an optimal system configuration and implementation to run the SAP workloads.
+ Conduct and document an implementation case study.

The IBM Redbooks publication that the residents will develop addresses topics to architects, brand specialists, distributors, resellers and anyone looking to integrate and run SAP workloads on IBM Power Systems. Moreover, this publication will provide documentation to transfer the how-to-skills to the technical teams, and documentation to the sales team.
