Slide 7 What is a Web GUI Anyway?! Basic Understanding of the Web GUI and Win GUI Access to SAP
Slide 8 Agenda Today, well be taking a look at: What is a Web GUI? What is our Hopkins SAP Web GUI? What is the Win GUI? The tale of 3 systems Questions & answers
Slide 9 Assumptions Participants are SAP users –beginner or proficient – who are interested in very basic information about what is our Web GUI access to SAP?
Slide 10 What is a Web GUI? World Wide Web G raphical U ser I nterface Web site/page; graphical display with which to interact with the computer
Slide 11 Web site / page: interacting with a computer other than the one at which we are sitting. Graphical User Interface: allows us to process our work through icons, menus, images, text boxes… For example, Amazon.com display is a Web GUI: I type into the text box Ballroom Dance Sends back a list of CDs I can purchase. Web site / page
Slide 12 What is our Hopkins SAP Web GUI? Web site Secure: identify ourselves through JHED Personalized access to SAP Accessing SAP roles from the Web GUI… Illustration: How information flows via our Web GUI
Slide 13 When we click the HopkinsOne icon on our desktop… We are launching Internet Explorer (or Firefox for Macs)... Sending our Web browser to a specific Intranet site… but first, we have to stop and identify who we are… Web Site
Slide 14 By typing in our JHED JHED (Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory) ID and password. If we are already logged into another software with our JHED ID, we might be able to skip this! Identify Ourselves with JHED
Slide 15 Once in, we can get right to work in SAP. This is the Web GUI (Web Graphical User Interface). Web-based way to work in SAP. Those blue tabs across the top: our individual SAP roles (assigned to our position) which can be accessed from this Web GUI. Personalized Access to SAP
Slide 16 Accessing Roles in the Web GUI We designed our Hopkins SAP to enable access directly from the Web. BW and Shopping Cart are roles which can only be accessed here. Online Payment and Travel / Reimbursement are roles which can be accessed here, or from the Win GUI (R/3 Enterprise), which we will look at in a few slides.
Slide 17 The Flow of Information Via Web GUI The Web GUI is our web-based window into SAP Anything we type and enter, routes across our network, through our Hopkins SAP web server, and in to our central SAP system. SAP then routes right back any messages, screen changes, in response to what we have entered: similar to any web-based application, such as Amazon.com. Hopkins SAP web server: giving us a web site which coordinates our work with SAP, and SAPs updates back to us. Hopkins SAP system: central business system. Receives what we enter, processes it, updates the Web GUI display. Our computer, receiving the Web GUI after we log in via the Internet. Internet connection
Slide 18 The Win GUI (R/3 Enterprise) What is the Win GUI Getting to the Win GUI
Slide 19 What is the Win GUI? If the Web GUI is the World Wide Web Graphical User Interface to Hopkins SAP… The Win GUI is… The Windows-based Graphical User Interface to Hopkins SAP. This is software installed on the computer being used. It allows deeper access to finance and personnel administration functions. SAP system Internet connection SAP user with the WIN GUI role Using a computer with the Win GUI software installed
Slide 20 Getting to the Win GUI Only some SAP roles or business functions require the Win GUI. If this role has been assigned to us (our position), R/3 Enterprise is the second blue tab across the top of the Web GUI. If the Win GUI software has been installed on our computer, we launch it by first clicking the R/3 Enterprise tab, then the R/3 Win GUI link. You can only get to the Win GUI from the Web GUI! Win GUI: R/3 Enterprise, R/3 Easy Access Menu…
Slide 21 Win GUI: Role and Software The Win GUI requires: The Win GUI role be assigned to a position The Win GUI software installed the computer being used If our position has financial or personnel administration roles, the Win GUI role is assigned to our position automatically Tougher than the Web GUI to keep updated and trouble shoot The software is downloaded by our LAN administrators (computer support), and additional computer settings are usually needed If we have EPR (Electronic Patient Records), Win GUI for EPR users… > Support > Download GUI
Slide 22 The Tale of 3 Systems R/3, SRM, BW…
Slide 23 Hopkins SAP: Three Systems R/3 SRM Supplier Relationship Management BW Business Warehouse Supplies / Purchasing Shopping Cart, Purchasing, Supplies Web GUI only Reporting All reporting: Finance, Controlling, Payments, HR… Web GUI only Finance / HR Travel, Online Payment, and R/3 Inbox can be accessed by Web GUI or Win GUI. HR and Finance functions only through Win GUI.
Slide 24 Conclusion The Hopkins SAP Web GUI is the Graphical User Interface, that uses a web browser such as Internet Explorer to access SAP. The Hopkins SAP Win GUI is software that interfaces directly to SAP that must be installed and updated. It provides deeper financial and personnel administration access to SAP. We can use the Web GUI to connect to the three primary SAP systems which comprise our Hopkins SAP. SRM and BW can only be accessed here. We use the Win GUI to access R/3 roles and transactions only.
