    Thanks for the Early Information!

    Does a customer that already has the license for OP 1511 need to buy a new one for OP 1610? Or it would be an upgrade?



    1. Devraj Bardhan

      My POV is that the core 1610 product is an upgrade.  However if you would like to use embedded  EWM (advance WH functions), PP/DS etc  then this has to be separately licensed. Talk to SAP directly to get clarity on what additional licenses need to be purchased.

        Hi Devraj,

        I saw the TEC100 presentation and EWM, Simple Finance, MDG, PPDS and others does not reflect license.  So, if you have 1610 license, you can use these functions without aditional license.

        In my POV 1610 is an upgrade, but I didn’t find any documentation clarifying it.

    Lot of news about the SAP Fiori launchpad 2.0 but what is the future of Enterprise Portal? Should customers invest time and money in Fiori2.0 instead of EP?

    1. Former Member

      For information SAP EP with a Fiori Framework allow to get results very close from Fiori Launchpad 2.0. You keep the advantages of having the portal (federation of system, use of alias) and the roadmap is clear, EP is part of the future.
