any year SAP will deploy a new version of S/4 HANA.
With S/4 HANA environment terms are changing. So you hvae to pay attention here. If somebody use the term “EHS” then in many cases it refers more to the product currently called “Component Extension for SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management” (e.g refer to https://www.sap.com/products/ehs-management-health-safety.html) than the product called “SAP EHS Management as Part of SAP ERP”, e.g. refer to https://www.sap.com/products/product-compliance.html)
Therefore: it is important to understand that in the new S/4 HANA we talk about two different products.
This blog discuss only the “SAP EHS Management as Part of SAP ERP” product and it follow up solution in S/4 HANA
Therefore: to get the correct picture: it is a good idea to get direct in contact with SAP so that may be you get some help to move to the new S/4 HANA environment and if you have the chane to visit SAP presentations you will get a good picture on roadmap in the area of EHS.
End of September 2019 the next S/4 HANA version has been released.
If you are interested in the future of EHS/EHSM: You should now start to learn the new terms/options etc. As mentioned: based on roadmap of SAP SAP will now deploy year by year new options/Capabilities in SAP S/4 HANA.
Considering the fact, that the “term used” are changing, it is important to understand the new terms as used with S/4 HANA: (In the past we have used e.g. EHS, EHSM etc.). But the situation will get “slightly” more complex (more terms).
Some discussions regarding the change of EHS with S/4 HANA can still be found. Here are some pages you should look at if you need information regarding S/4 HANA.
SAP will communicate per year the current future roadmap in context of “EHS applications” based on S/4 HANA to the customers (but only via direct contact with the customer or using some SAP presentations or partially via SAP marketplace).
You as “user” of SAP EHS Management should really try to follow any discussion in any user group (e.g. DSAG, ASUG etc.) to understand the SAP strategy. The changes (old world; new world) will be clearly bigger as the change from SAP 4.6. to SAP Enterprise, to SAP ERP; so this new “EHS” version will be a complete new software. But you (as Customer of SAP) need to think about: how to use the new version. Uutil 2025 you can still use SAP ERP in “compatibility mode) using an S/4 HANA environment (but you need to understand, that S/4 HANA will not support all EHS tools/solutions (refer to different blogs)
