zap Cash - Getting started

Prepare your zap Cash project by following these five simple steps

zap Cash analyzes double payments within one SAP client across multiple company codes and for up to three fiscal years. Your zap Cash preparation journey is as easy as it can get. Please prepare the following minimal steps to get started.

1. Defining the scope

  • Which SAP clients do you want to analyze?
  • What are the essential company codes?
  • How many years do you wish to analyze?

We at zapliance follow a simple rule when starting a new project: Start small, scale fast.

Which means: For the first zap Cash project, let's pick one or two interesting company codes that are neither too small not to produce results nor too big to squeeze the last bit of energy out of your hardware. 

2. Identifying suitable hardware

zap Cash is ready for your large SAP data sets. Please talk to your infrastructure team to organize a virtual machine or equivalent with the following parameter: 

  • Windows 64-bit operating system
  • 64GB RAM of memory, ideally scalable between 16GB RAM  and 128GB RAM
  • A modern multi-core processor (min. 8 cores)
  • 1-2TB hard disk space which supports read and write speeds of up to 300 MB/s

3. Identify or apply for a suitable SAP User

Probably one of the most significant advantages of zap Cash is that there is no need to update SAP. All you need is an SAP User with RFC read table access. To be more precise, the user profile needs to look like this:

rfc_access_rights

If you would like to have more details on how to set up the user, have a look at the following article:
