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 follow these simple steps to get started.

1. Define the scope

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

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

What this means: for the first zap Cash project, pick one or two interesting company codes that are not too small and will produce a good amount of results. Also, don’t pick company codes that are so big and complex that they squeeze every last drop of energy out of your hardware! 

2. Identify 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 parameters: 

  • 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 with at least 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’d like more details on how to set up the user, please have a look at the following article:
