Installing SAP solutions can take a long time, which is not always an option when you need to execute a demo, test business functionality, create a proof of concept, conduct training, or explore a product. To solve this challenge, SAP created SAP Cloud Application Library (CAL), an on-demand, online library containing preconfigured, ready-to-use SAP solutions to help you speed up the innovation process. In this step-by-step instructional guide, Microsoft’s Sachin Ghorpade explains how to install SAP solutions using SAP CAL in the public cloud. In this document Microsoft Azure is used as the infrastructure deployment for SAP CAL, however you can choose a hyper scaler of your choice.
After reading this article you will be able to:
- Define what SAP CAL is and how it is used;
- Understand how to get the required MS Azure properties in order to create an account in SAP CAL; and
- Explain the steps to deploy a fully activated SAP S/4HANA 1909 system in Azure using SAP CAL.
