SAP has introduced their all-new IDES or Internet Demonstration and Evaluation System that works in the R/3 System and represents a model company. It contains application data for various business scenarios that can be run in the SAP System and can be used to reflect real-life business requirements and has access to many realistic characteristics. It uses an easy-to-follow business scenario to show you the comprehensive functions of the R/3 System. Along with the functionality, it focuses on business processes and their integration as well.
The main highlighting advantages of this are the individual demos that provides the users with an overview of the master data and contain step by step instructions on how to execute the individual processes.
