SAP Server Access with NO MONTHLY FEES!

Have you ever wanted a personal private SAP server to practice SAP and SAP BI/BW? Well, now you can easily set up your very own in around 90 minutes!  This tutorial steps you through the process of creating your very own SAP server on your local machine.  

There are absolutely NO MONTHLY FEES with this type of trial SAP system.  The only catch is, you're responsible for manually extending your trial every 90 days.  Failure to extend your trial will result in your SAP environment being locked down and impossible to log in to.  As long as you stay on top of extending your trial, you’re free to enjoy perpetual FREE SAP access to improve upon your skills!  

How does this type of trial system compare to other paid shared SAP servers?

There's no comparison.  Don't waste your time and money paying for SAP shared server access. These companies throw hundreds of users onto the same system and charge upwards of $100 USD for monthly access.  Paying for shared access makes it difficult to practice as there is little to no quality control.  Imagine that you've been working on a huge project only to find that another user has been modifying your objects.  It can be incredibly frustrating as you have no way to stopping this behavior.   Not to mention frequent server crashing and poor performance.  That's why we recommend you keep everything private on your own system to maximize your SAP learning experience.  

SAP Initial System Configuration is very, very tricky!

I'll guide you step by step through the system configuration process.  It's very daunting so I highly recommend you follow the steps as outlined in the videos as one wrong SAP entry could require a complete system rebuild.  

Virtual Machine?

We require that you use a virtualized Linux OS through either VMware or Oracle VirtualBox to keep the SAP system separate from your primary.  This also gives you the ability to take a snapshot of your virtual machine at a current state in time that will allow you to quickly restore if you accidentally misconfigure something.  

So if learning how to quickly set up your very own private SAP and BI/BW system in around 90 minutes excites you, this is definitely the course for you!  I'll see you on the inside!

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone looking to obtain SAP or SAP BI/BW access without paying a monthly fee
  • Responsible individuals that will stay on top of their trial renewals to their system access won't lapse and lock out
  • Don't take this course if occasional error messages stop you in your tracks. Some research may be required for troubleshooting issues isolated to your machine
