How to Get SAP S/4HANA Chemicals Trial with Industry Best Practices

Update 06/15/18: SAP S/4HANA Chemicals trial is now available on S/4HANA 1709 FPS00


The SAP S/4HANA Chemicals trial with industry best practices provides configuration for business processes critical to the chemical industry. The SAP S/4HANA Chemicals trial is based on SAP experience with over 6,000 chemical customers in 95 countries. This fully-activated trial supports end-to-end processes that drive value for chemical manufacturers and is based on the S/4HANA 1709 baseline processes relevant for all industries.

The SAP S/4HANA Chemicals trial can be provided as an SAP Cloud Appliance Library (CAL) which is a kind of a compressed system that can be rapidly extracted into a regular system instance. It can also be order as a Blue Ray (check the SAP Note for details). The SAP S/4HANA Chemicals trial includes core functionality for the Chemical Industry in the areas of procurement, supply chain, manufacturing, plant maintenance, sales and marketing, environmental health & safety, and finance. The description of the covered processes can be found below using the provided Best Practice Explorer links.

The SAP S/4HANA Chemicals trial can be used as a reference system on how to apply SAP Best Practice processes. In addition, as CAL it can serve as a quick-to-use exploration system for a fit/gap analysis for standard and best practice processes supported by SAP S/4HANA. Both purposes can be considered given a 30-day-trial constrain (longer use possible but requires additional licenses).

      Great work!  Chemicals is still the ONLY industry at SAP with a version of Best Practices in S/4.
