Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing (SAP) offers software applications for business. These offerings include a comprehensive set of business applications that are supported on the System i family of products and the i5/OS integrated DB2 Universal Database (UDB) for the iSeries database.

All of the SAP applications are based on a common infrastructure layer called SAP NetWeaver.

This IBM Redpaper focuses on the SAP business applications based on mySAP NetWeaver 2004 and outlines the activities involved when installing an SAP system that are specific to the System i customer. Use this Redpaper as an installation checklist.

For more detailed information about planning and installation steps and other considerations when installing an SAP application, refer to the formal SAP documentation.

Refer to Implementing SAP Applications with System i and i5/OS, SG24-7166, for information about the activities involved in maintaining and operating an SAP system.
