What is this blog about ?
In 2015, SAP launched the first version of SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA), the next generation business suite designed to help customers run simple in the digital economy.
To help customers and partners implement SAP S/4HANA, we released a structured and regularly updated guide, the SAP S/4HANA cookbook, that links to relevant information around the implementation of SAP S/4HANA.
Think of it as an entry point that guides you to all relevant information related to the implementation of SAP S/4HANA – not only the standard SAP documentation but also to SAP Best Practices, how-to guides, whitepapers and other background information.
Typical target audiences are project leads, solution architects, and similar profiles.
What content can you expect to find in the SAP S/4HANA cookbook ?
Since SAP S/4HANA is at an early stage in the software lifecycle, the cookbook will have a living content structure that will be adapted over time.
The cookbook consists of a small set of HTML pages that contain summary information and hyperlinks to more detailed documents that let you dive into the respective subject matter.
Currently, we have the following high-level content structure:
SAP S/4HANA cookbook: First glimpse
Since every implementation project is different, you might not find the exactly measured ingredients for your specific SAP S/4HANA implementation in those contents, but you hopefully will get a good understanding what you need to watch out for when preparing your personal SAP S/4HANA menu.
As said above, the journey has just started, and the itinerary will contain iterative content updates. Therefore, please regularly check back for new content.
Where and when was the cookbook published ?
The first version of the cookbook was released end of July 2015. Since then, we had continuous updates and will further enhance it towards the launch of the next release of SAP S/4HANA in Q4/2015.
The cookbook is part of the SAP S/4HANA community (see above for the links to the respective entry pages of the cookbook). In this community, you can also raise your questions about SAP S/4HANA.
If you have comments about the cookbook itself, please use the commenting function of this blog.
Best and stay tuned,
