The wait is finally over….. SAP S/4HANA 1511 is released
At high-level the functional benefits from SAP S/4HANA 1511 release look promising and as anticipated… .
And while the “Simplification List” is officially awaited -(as this blog is being written)–
However based on available content on help.sap.com and SAP NOTES (Release Note, Restrictions Notes and other NOTES), I have tried to create a document that captures in same line – key “Changes – the good and the restrictions” in each Functional Area
It looks like while the “End-Product” SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Edition will be quite promising … however 1511 version this is just the beginning of the journey…
One thing is very clear — MANY Business benefits may not come STRATIGHT from “MAJOR NEW INNOVATIONS” as a “NEW FEATURE and FUNCTIONALITY on the PLATE”, however, from the long-listing of (may be) smaller but significant simplifications
that the product has to offer in 1511 edition and the subsequent releases, many business benefits and use case can be “CARVED out” and will need “Visualization”, “identification” and “mapping” to address various and specific business pain-areas.
For Example :
Of interest is also the “Integration with Existing landscape as well as “consolidation and strengthening of existing functionalities in S/4HANA Solution”
Supported by the “Technical” simplification, SAP S/4HANA 1511 is all and more about “New” ways of “Thinking” and “Doing Business” with a mindset towards “Exploring & Exploiting” technological capabilities.
I look forward to explore 1511 edition features and functionalities.
