Abstract: This paper documents some of the tests we did with the most recent release of SAP AG’s Loans Management for Banking Services application. This paper concentrates on the DB Server portion of the infrastructure. We will not go into much depth on the SAP Loans Management functionality. There is more information about the application functionality in . Further, there is a highly recommended technical white paper, “SAP Loans Management on IBM System z” document  that also discusses functionality as well as the SAP Application Server portion of these tests. IBM and SAP have worked together for several years on many aspects of SAP Banking solutions for large enterprises such as Core Banking, Bank Analyzer, and Insurance – particularly with respect to IBM System z and zEnterprise. SAP has also authored an associated document outlining best design practices exploiting System z in the banking industry.
