Applications on SAP Service Market Place (SMP)

After posting a quick links to Service Market Place (SMP) a while ago I’m posting here few useful applications on SMP. More less those application are nothing else just SAP’s Business Server Pages (BSP) or WebDynpro (WD) based application helping SAP’s customers in specific areas.

As an example we can take a QuickSizer tool. It is used by customer and partner to estimate HW sizing of deployments for SAP software. Application as itself is in this case developed in BSP. There are more great tools providing information available on SMP.

I’m sure there are many more useful applications out here on SMP however we are as much get used of them that we are even do not mention it.

Within the tool you have a possibility to browse (per Note sub/component) all the notes SP is comprised of. Further you can see object list, see Notes side effects and finally download SP.
