introduction to the group

You really need the BC370 for the AS/400 and SAP bits together; the BC305 is
purely SAP, and should be attended after the BC370. (IMHO).

If you can't get on a scheduled course, try and buy some time from an SAP &
AS/400 consultant, who can help you up the steep learning curve.

I reckon that SAP isn't like any other AS/400 application, and that AS/400's
aren't like any other platform

Cheers, Peter

(who is from an SAP, but not AS/400 background!)

Hi all,

I'm Marc Van de Velde and work as ICT-manager at Desco.
Desco NV. is a wholesale/retail company, located in Belgium and supplying
plumbing material to plumbers. End of last year we have decided to buy SAP
as renewal for our legacy systems. We have also decided to implement SAP on
the AS/400 platform since our legacy system is implemented on the same
environment; we have experience with this environment and we believe it is
the most reliable platform around.

December last year we have started to load the IDES environment on our
development environment which is completed by now.
Beginning of January we started with the installation of our
DEV-environment on our development machine. This installation is quite time
consuming since our consultant has a lot of SAP installation knowledge
unfortunately he has no knowledge of the AS/400. We try to help him out on
this area and by now we have learned that installing SAP on the AS/400
requires a lot of PTF's and CUMPKG's. We believe we have downloaded the
last set of PTF's this weekend and now we're busy with setting-up secondary
languages and installing the first clients.

During this 1 month of experience I'm convinced of the fact that we should
learn SAP-AS/400 administration in-depth and as soon as possible.
Contacting SAP I find out that there is no such course in Belgium in 2001
and a course in Manchester (UK) has finished last Thursday.
There is only 1 course - around the world - given in English in San
Francisco later this year.

Does anyone have suggestions on finding alternatives for this i.e. is this
course given by IBM as well? Are there other companies who give such
courses ? Can't I gain knowledge by self-study ? If so, where can I find
the study material.

Yours sincerely,

Marc Van de Velde
Desco NV.
