The SAP connectors are typically just some transports that you import into your SAP system.  They create some bapis to which QlikView connects.  You will have to create a user with which QlikView can connect and assign some of the roles created with the imported transports.

Overall the integration with SAP is fairly simple.  The thing that you will need to make sure you keep watch on is the resource usage.  This is really dependent on how your QlikView developers code their QlikView apps.  If they are not utilizing delta data loads they can end up putting a lot of load on your system.  I would also recommend limiting how many people can do ad-hoc loads from their local clients over your production system.  Since each client would be loading data locally you can overload your system.  If your QlikView team is using a Publisher server then you can limit the times they pull their data to off hours.

Here is the QlikView guide from QlikView.

I've also attached our team's doc on how to set it up in SAP.  It's pretty easy so we just have a txt document for this.
