Abstract: This whitepaper has the intent of support an IT Architect approaching SAP Architectures as well as being a reference book of standards, customizations and details to more experiences SAP IT Architects who are working with IBM platforms. What is, optimistically, the value of this whitepaper is to condensate most of the technical concepts behind SAP and IBM Technologies which are usually spread among many pages or many different manuals (and sometimes your only way to assimilate those concepts are only on paid trainings or if you are lucky, your senior colleague willing to teach you) as well as my argumentation for each architectural decision and/or technical choice described in this whitepaper.
