SAP Help Portal
You might be asking yourself why on Earth would I put the old (but gold) SAP Help Portal to close a Digital Transformation related blog series!
The truth is that SAP Help Portal has always been one of the top resources for customers for many years and keep on being one of the most essential source of information for SAP customers, partners and the overall community. The portal has been gone through a complete redesign over the last few years and had faced lots of up and downs in what regards to the community feedback raising lots of discussions and controversy behind the new user’s experience.
Nowadays the website has a simple and intuitive experience for browsing and a very efficient searching mechanism (based on HANA full-text search) allowing users to establish advanced search operators in combination with various filters.
Never underestimate the rich content provided on the SAP Help Portal. From release bulletins throughout development and architecture guides, data modeling, installation manuals, configuration instructions, integration details, videos, security guidelines and the list goes on and on… great artefacts that will help you planning and empowering your squad.
The SAP Help Portal might limit your access to some documentation unless you log on with your S-user ID as some documents are restricted from public view. For the rest the portal is very intuitive and user friendly. I recommend you to understand and explore advanced search options for an enhanced experience
