It happens all the time. A customer asks me what is new in the SAP Solutions. And I would wade through various release notes about the enhancement packs, use the SCN Enhancement Packages for ERP site, and in general look at lot of power points and other documents. A lot of work for a fairly  innocuous question.

With the launch of SAP Innovation Discovery solution things became lot easier. With a more friendly display giving a summary of the innovations

And a list of enhancements matching entered search criteria, along with number of features that the enhancement impacts

Drilling down to the detail of each enhancement

An end result is a much easier to consume. Also this solution also comes with some additional information that I was not able to get before, specifically whether or not the innovation requires additional licence on top of the foundation license (Dollar Sign with a line draw though it. Other icons giving additional information about the innovation will be displayed as necessary (e.g. Innovation for In-memory Database, Major Improvement for the User Experience, that the innovation runs on a mobile device).

Initially, the content in Innovation Discovery covers the Business Suite.  In future, more products will be integrated into the Innovation Discovery Service to position the tool as the single source to discover new functionality across the SAP portfolio.
