We are into finalising RFP details for rolling an ERP (SAP/Oracle) for operations ranging from usual backend (HR, Accounts, Administration) to front end business largely associated with engineering and construction business.
Now, does anyone here have any experience relating to the security needs of SAP or oracle implementation on the infrastructural level? I have heard that recently NOvell had a tie up with SAP and microsoft and guys are talking about SuSe linux Enterprise server as a robost alternative to windows
underlying platform. Is this an alternative that can be explored?
What other things you guys might want to be considered at the RFP level from technology (and not functionality/features) perspective, for we already have too many people on board mapping out business needs at this point in time, but very few, looking at the underlying infrastructure, storage and redundancy planning, disaster recovery etc., on which the whole initiative will run.
Any/all suggestions are welcome.
