SAP on Mac

SAP with that annoying windows bug fixed.





* Not really fixed, windows is running inside a virtual machine (VMWare). But since it allows to run applications outside the VM box, SAP feels like a OSX application.

Hi Pedro,

Recentlly I've changed also to MAC, and it was a problem to get everything working.....

Nevertheless, You have the JAVA GUI for MAC, LINUX and other OS in the public site ftp.sap.com.

It's not as windows gui version - still some bugs, such as on the debug window, double click a variable to see it value, it doesnt work. We have to copy into the bottom window to see it..... :-((

Hi Alcides,

I haven't tried the java GUI yet because I need the virtual windows for the network access.

I'm quite happy with the OSX/vmware setup. I suppose it will always be needed because some intranet software only works with IE.

Were you able to build a complete OSX based environment in the enterprise world?

Hi Pedro,

I can tell you at the begining I was a little bit afraid due to all the 'windows' enterprise world dependency.
Surprisingly I started to find solutions to all situations and softwares - networking access is fantastic and with an easy setup.

Today I have a fully cappable OSX starting with the productivity tools (such as MS Office for MAC, Omnigraph and OmniProject (eq. Visio an Ms proj) MSN, design tools , Oracle SQL developer tools, Lotus notes (beta 8.5) networking VPN, and .....
most of all - with a MACBOOK - almost 6 hours of battery life - fully working......;-))

Quite impressive no ?

Yeah, Oracle, Lotus and SAP is impressive. With that I declare the "windows is needed for the enterprise" as myth busted!

Yap, for sure....it's not more than a myth......
To enforce this theory, here you have some numbers from Ben Lorica on O'Reilly radar blog about Mac on enterprises....;-)
