A Brief History of SAP NetWeaver
Prior to the introduction of SAP NetWeaver in 2004, a large part of
the SAP technology stack was synonymous with the SAP computing
platform.

We often referred to this stack simply as the SAP Basis layer.

SAP supported a handful of operating systems and databases, all
systems were built on Advanced Business Application
Programming(ABAP), and the systems could be extended a bit but
were generally part of a somewhat isolated SAP-only landscape.

However, the relative simplicity of the client/server era that gave
birth to SAP R/3 is long gone, and the complexities of the post-
client/server era are all around us.

Introducing NetWeaver
In 2004, SAP introduced SAP NetWeaver and broadened the
technology stack concept into a complete integration platform.
The earliest NetWeaver foundation included WebAS ABAP and Java
components.
Infrastructure (the precursor to todays SAP NetWeaver Process
Integration) allowed SAP and non-SAP systems to connect more
easily.
As each Business Suite component was updated, SAP took the
opportunity to NetWeaver-enable them, In this way, SAP R/3
Enterprise eventually morphed into SAP ERP Central Component
(ECC). Applications like SAP SRM soon followed, while brand new
components like SAP Product Lifestyle Management (PLM)
benefited developmentally from a clean slate.

File/FTP, HTTP(S), SOAP, JMS, JDBC, SMTP/POP3/IMAP,
EDIFACT/ANSI X.12,IBM 3270/5250

Strategic Benefits of NetWeaver
More rapidly deployed business solutions.
Decreased development and testing costs.
Easily enabled integration, speeding up the time necessary to deploy SAP
and shrinking the time necessary to perform system upgrades and so on.
Reduced system lifecycle total cost of ownership (TCO), primarily because
maintenance and support costs are dramatically reduced in the wake of
platform standardization. (Before NetWeaver, each SAP product was
installed a little bit differently than its counterparts.)
Through SAP NetWeaver, a companys IT organization needs to spend less
time performing low-value maintenance task.
Greater potential for innovation; IT organizations can spend more time
figuring out how to meet the changing needs of the business.

Bringing It All Together
As companies seek to address new business challenges
through SAP NetWeaver technologies, they must
gather requirements to determine the type of solution
needed.
SAP provides the SAP NetWeaver Master Guide for
system administrators and technology consultants to
assist with the implementation of their SAP NetWeaver
systems.
The Master Guide provides a common reference for
the entire SAP NetWeaver implementation cycle and is
a valuable resource for those new to NetWeaver.
