Before you start the extraction of data from your SAP system, you need to prepare the initial steps in the cloud, to receive the data.
In order to get started with a ‘Ready for SAP HANA’, you need to have an active Gekkobrain account and have access to this account as an Account Administrator. If you don’t have an account yet, then you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your Gekkobrain Partner. Then an account will be created, and you will receive the login details in an e-mail.
Before you can start doing an assessment you need to setup the first project in the Gekkobrain Cloud. A project in the Cloud is always linked to a System-ID (which should match your SAP System-ID) for which you will do the HANA Readiness inspections. You can define multiple systems and projects in Gekkobrain for the same account.
Go to the Menu ‘System List’ in the Menu - and you will see the newly created System-ID.
The system you have just created will get an API-key. You will need this API key when you send inspections to your Gekkobrain account.
After you have created a system, the next step is to create a new “HANA Ready” datasource. You will need to link the datasource to the System ID, you have just created in the previous step.
You have now created a new HANAREADY project in Gekkobrain. Go to the Menu ‘Project List’ in the Menu, where you will see the newly created Project.
The final step you need to go through before you can send the first inspections to Gekkobrain is to get the Account ID. You will need this Account ID, when you start the extraction report in SAP. See FAQ
When you have defined the SAP Systems and Datasource in the Gekkobrain cloud, then the next step is to install the Gekkobrain Extractor Framework and setup the scans to send data to the Gekkobrain Cloud.
When the Extractor in SAP has completed the transfer of inspections, you are now ready to go. Log into Gekkobrain and see the first assessment of your inspections.
