4 Introducing What-to Advice: SAP Guidelines for Best-Built Applications The Best-Built Apps Guidelines are: Recommendations from SAP about what SAP technologies partners should leverage Descriptions of what to do rather than how to do it Based on internal standards, best practices, and architecture guidelines used by SAP developers Developed iteratively and incrementally The Best-Built Apps Guidelines are not: Statements of future direction Qualification for a new brand or logo Mandates that partners must follow Best-Built Apps Guidelines are simply guidance about what partners should do to best align their complementary software with SAP Business Suite Partners choose whether or not to follow the guidance SAP AG All rights reserved. / Page 4

5 Customer and Partner Benefits From the Guidelines Benefits for Our Mutual Customers Lower Integration Costs Integration is easier between software components built using similar architecture approaches and best practices Reduce Support Costs Products that use recommended components and follow well-understood patterns Complementary software built to leverage SAP support infrastructure Improve Familiarity Reduced operating and training costs for software that runs like SAP solutions Benefits for Our Partners Increase Customer Satisfaction Due to lower integration and support cost, improved familiarity Mitigate Development Costs Better alignment with SAP solutions from the onset reduces future realignment costs Enhance Return on Investment Reducing realignment needs can improve time to market and lifetime ROI SAP AG All rights reserved. / Page 5

6 Three Valid Approaches to Solution Development SAP Business Suite Industry Solutions Designed with SAP tools to run in the SAP environment Partner applications built using SAP design and development tools. Such solutions will naturally be deployed to run on the SAP technology platform Migrated to run in the SAP environment Partner applications that are developed using non-sap design time tools and later migrated to run on SAP s technology platform Connected to an SAP solution Partner products developed using non-sap design time tools and running on non-sap platforms that integrate with SAP Business Suite and other solutions SAP AG All rights reserved. / Page 6

17 Universe Semantic Layer for SAP BusinessObjects BI Tools The Universe is the SAP BusinessObjects semantic layer through which business users access data. The Universe consists of three components: Connectivity information Data foundation Business layer.unv BT-META-1. SAP recommends using the SAP BusinessObjects semantic layer (Universe) as an intermediate layer between reports, analytics, queries, analysis, and dashboards and the underlying database. The Universe allows application developers to simplify access to data schemas for their users. BT-META-2. SAP does not recommend using SAP BusinessObjects Business Views as the metadata layer. SAP AG All rights reserved. / Page 17

SAP recommends using the component deployment model for the following situations: Small, self-contained component desktop applications Small Web applications that will be accessed by a department or work group in a company Reports that are run on demand A reporting engine embedded in the application process SAP recommends using the server deployment model rather than the component deployment model in more demanding situations like the following: For mission-critical Web applications that need report processing failover For reports that need to run at specific times or are based on specific events or the successful completion of a third-party business process For reports that share objects like formulas, SQL commands, text objects, and images in an object-oriented repository For managing shared reports For providing access to enterprise data via web services For situations with a complex semantic data layer Where robust security options for user, group, object, and folder levels are required For batch report processing SAP AG All rights reserved. / Page 21

22 Crystal Reports Reporting Component BT-BO-3. SAP recommends using functionality from any of the following products when developing using the component deployment model: Crystal Reports 2008 Crystal Reports XI Developer Microsoft Visual Studio Crystal Reports for Visual Studio.NET Crystal Reports for Eclipse Rational Application Developer BT-BO-3a. SAP does not recommend using the Crystal Reports report designer component (RDC), which is an older COM-based solution. SAP AG All rights reserved. / Page 22
