If you’d like to SEE how to deploy the latest SAP S/4HANA Fully Activated Appliance & Trial systems from the SAP Cloud Appliance Library (SAP CAL) before “you try it at home”, then this new SAP HANA Academy playlist of short tutorials is for you – and we included new tutorials from the SAP CAL team which cover more cloud partners too.
If you are new to the SAP S/4HANA Fully Activated Appliance, then for each major release of S/4HANA (on-premise versions) there are also two critical blogs. An introduction blog which includes a link on where to GET the appliance, and a known issues blog from our colleague, Joerg Wolf, that you must read as well:
