Introduction to SAP Enterprise Architecture Designer

via openSAP


Enterprise architecture is more important than ever in today’s dynamic business environment to provide a blueprint for executing digital transformation. By building an enterprise architecture, organizations can deliver a common knowledge base of easy-to-consume documentation that explains the relationships between the business and technical guiding principles and structures with which to develop a plan of action for change to drive growth.

In today’s world, it is a challenge for most customers to gain a cohesive business and system view of the enterprise.

SAP Enterprise Architecture Designer provides a single solution for you to create, document, and integrate the organization’s business, data, landscape, and requirements models to design and plan how to achieve this heterogeneous cohesive view.

This course starts with an introduction to the tool itself. After explaining the use of the tool with user/group rights, import, export, and common functions such as repository browsing, we’ll look at the 3 main functional areas. The second week will cover business modeling with business capability and BPMN models, including support for SAP Solution Manager. In the third week, we’ll discuss information modeling. This covers conceptual data models and 2 different SAP HANA styles, with Data Definition Language (DDL) as well as SAP HANA Deployment Infrastructure (HDI). We’ll also briefly touch on data warehousing foundation (DWF) support, data movement models, and other databases like Oracle, DB2, and MS SQL. The last week will cover enterprise architecture, with landscape and location models.
