      1. How to Implement them technically - not just at high-level & component level, It would be good to get a detail activity-level-business-process-flow viz-a-viz component-implementation.

      2. Listing of New Functionalities & Innovations especially in SAP S/4 HANA CORE would be appreciated.

      Thanks in advance, look forward to your sessions too 🙂
