    Has anyone yet implemented S/4 HANA 1511 with new SAP best practices packages (BP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANAX_DE V1.X  or _US V1.X) by using SAP Activate methodology and where we can find a “live example” of it?

    1. Sven Kelemen

      In Solution Builder (transaction /N/SMB/BBI) it’s possible to Import BP from reference content to get BP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANAX_DEV1 but all configuration files .TXT are missing. They are not downloadable from Solution Builder and also can’t be found on (Installations and Upgrades – B SAP Best Practices SAP BP BASELINE PACKAGES). Documentation can be found here: SAP Service Marketplace -> Products -> SAP Best Practices & SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions -> SAP S/4HANA -> SAP Best Practices for SAP S/4HANA, on-premise. Be aware your new system has S4CORE in CVERS table instead of former SAP_APPL component.



      UPDATE: check the Admin Guide in help Portal BP is now part of the installation

      Hi Tomislav,
