Hardware Sizing Service:

Sizing projects are carried out at very different stages of an SAP project. They represent an iterative process that depends closely on the amount of information that is available to you at a certain point in time to make reliable statements on the actual hardware requirements. Our team is highly trained for providing budgetary hardware sizing for all SAP Modules.

SAPS (SAP Application Performance Standard)  
SAP Application Performance Standard (SAPS) is a hardware-independent unit of measurement that describes the performance of a system configuration in the SAP environment. It is derived from the Sales and Distribution (SD) benchmark, where 100 SAPS is defined as 2,000 fully business processed order line items per hour.

In technical terms, this throughput is achieved by processing 6,000 dialog steps (screen changes), 2,000 postings per hour in the SD Benchmark, or 2,400 SAP transactions.

In the SD benchmark, fully business processed means the full business process of an order line item: creating the order, creating a delivery note for the order, displaying the order, changing the delivery, posting a goods issue, listing orders, and creating an invoice.
