Get access to an SAP system for individual needs

Dedicated access to an SAP system
There are many companies such as SAP Remote login that offer access to a live SAP system for your own individual use, this could be for the day, the weekend or even for the year, as long you want really. This would allow you to access an SAP system to meet any training needs you may have, develop an ABAP report, web dynpro, Fiori/SAPUI5 app etc. or simply familiarise yourself with a specific SAP transaction.

As well as basic SAP installations such as ERP ECC 6.0 or SAP 4.7 you can also get access to SAP systems with CRM 7, SRM 7, SAP PI 7.1, Solution manager etc. installed and configured. They also offer various enhancement pack levels for the different modules as well.

Access to a full SAP system is not necessarily what you are after. Perhaps you just want an SAP application server so that you can develop ABAP reports and applications. For this the miniSAP software may be the answer as it is a piece of software you install on your local pc which allows you to access SAP transactions such as se80 to develop ABAP code. It's not quite as simple as it sounds but please see here for a full step by step guide to installing a mini SAP 610 system on you own pc or laptop. It also provides details where to get the latest version of miniSAP/ ECC trial from.

Install your Own free SAP Trial System beyond miniSAP 6.10
Since these early additions of miniSAP a host of other trial and local versions of SAP software has become available, but finding the information and performing the install is still a bit of an art form. Especially when most people who require these installations are ABAP or SAP beginners. Finding the information required and performing the install started being quite complicated and over the years this has just got worse. Luckily there are a number of excellent online video tutorials/courses available which not only take you step by step through each process but are also updated with the latest information on a regular basis.

Some are free and some are just a few dollars but the information is invaluable if it gets you up and running in less than a couple of hours. You also get access to the trainers if you have any problems or queries and as they are provided via the worldwide udemy platform they all come with a 30-day money back guarantee, so if it does do what it says then simply get your money back.
