"SAP Netweaver for Dummies" Print E-mail
by Dan Wood and Jeffrey Word

"Imagine that it’s the 1950s, and you are in charge of developing the U. S. interstate system. There are countless roads already in use. The system can go in numerous different directions. Where do you begin?"

JR's Take: I read this book to get a crash course on SAP NetWeaver before an SAP conference where I was to interview some real SAP heavyweights, including SAP's own Chief Technology Officer. To this day,

I can tell you that this is the most concise and helpful overview of SAP NetWeaver I have ever read, and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who has been confused by the NetWeaver technology stack and wants to get a feel for the different components. -JR-

Book Description: "Starting to transform your business with SAP NetWeaver is that daunting. NetWeaver is both an application platform and an integration platform. It integrates your current IT systems to enable portals, collaboration, data management, and development environments. To grasp the complexities and possibilities of SAP ASAP, dig in with SAP NetWeaver For Dummies and explore:
* MySAP Business Suite
* SAP Enterprise Planning Resource (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Human Capital Management (HCM), Product * Lifecycle Management (PLM), Supplier Relationship Management (SRM), and more
* Mobile Infrastructure that performs like a universal translator for mobile interfaces, including laptops, wireless phones, and PDAs
* Master Data Management, including using the content consolidation technique to “clean up” data, master data harmonization to distribute it, and central master data management to maintain a data repository
* Web Application Service and NetWeaver Developer Studio—tools that let you integrate and create your own customized applications
Written by Dan Woods, former CTO of The Street.com and CapitalThinking, and Jeffrey Word, the Director of Technology Strategy for SAP, this guide features real-life stories from businesses and examples of typical uses to help you cut through the complexities and get up and running. It includes a CD-ROM with:
* Detailed white papers and product overviews
* Stores from customers using SAP NetWeaver today
* Demos that show SAP NetWeaver in action
* A directory of resources for additional information
Like that interstate system, SAP NetWeaver doesn’t have to be integrated all at once. You choose the applications that have the most potential to benefit your company’s operations and bottom line. SAP NetWeaver For Dummies even gives you recommendations for rolling it out and suggests practical ways to get started and get quick returns on your SAP investment. Then you’re going full-speed ahead on the road to success!"

"Jon, you are definitely spot on with your analysis of the SAP market. I've been using your websites for over five years now. Instead of buying all the SAP books, I use your stuff to catch up with what's new in the ever-increasing SAP market." - Mark

JonERP.com Reader Feedback

"I've kept up with your JonERP.com site for a long time and your articles via SearchSAP.com and elsewhere. I just realized a few months ago that you were also the author of the first SAP Consulting book that I read when I decided to take the leap from working at a Utility company to becoming an SAP Consultant. The SAP Consultant Handbook is a staple for any SAP consultant, new or experienced. I just wanted to thank you for the quality work."
