I have a very small development company that works designing solutions for SAP Customers.
To be able to work remotely and for demo purposes, I would like to have access to an IDES system.
The ideal for me would be to have a license so I could install it on my own servers.
What are the options I have?
Partnering with SAP is an option but I don't know how much it costs.
If I buy Business one, I will be considered an SAP customer. In this case will I have access to an IDES license?
Customers and Partners holding the appropriate license can order a complete mySAP Business Suite IDES landscape or selected components free of charge via the SAP Service Marketplace. IDES standard shipments include e.g. R/3 Enterprise, R/3 Enterprise with CRM, R/3 Enterprise with APO, BW, etc. Industry specific IDES shipments are prepared on request.
The content of IDES is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Japanese language. All SAP R/3 and IDES-specific data, such as customizing settings, short and long texts are available in the language you require. The system itself (screens, interaction, not the IDES content) can be installed in 18 different languages. IDES is always operated as a separate installation; upgrades are allowed only in exceptional cases. Therefore, each new release requires a new installation. This is the only way to guarantee the quality of new master and transactional data, customizing settings and business process documentation, which have already been tested. Standard support to an IDES installation is available free of charge via OSS, under the component XX-IDES. Extended support will be given on request and may be chargeable.
