    Hello Thomas.. Thanks for sharing this very useful information.

    I have one question regarding Extensibility of On Premise S/4 HANA Deployment..

    I saw in white water its clearly mentioned that all classic extensions which we use to perform in Business Suite will be valid in on premise version as well.

    Actually I have one S/4 HAna system and i can see some enhacements points in that system but when i try to create new Implicit Enhacement I get Error message that S/4 Core cannot be enhaced. Now some colleagues of mine are telling that Enhancement spots and implementations will not be allowed in S/4 HANA Onpremise. Now i am confused wheather these enhacements are allowed or not.

    It will be really helpful if you can clear this doubt.
