The new SAP S/4HANA Extensibility white paper is now available. It was re-written and replaces the old one. The link to the white paper is still the same, so if you have linked or bookmarked it, you do not have to change the link:
SAP S/4HANA® and SAP S/4HANA Cloud Extensibility for Customers and Partners
I do not want to re-phrase the content here, but some points I want to mentioned. The paper is not just a minor update of the previous version, it is re-written to a large degree, I just want to mention some points here:
- positioning of the SAP Cloud Platform software development kit (SDK) and the SAP S/4HANA Cloud SDK
positioning of the SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment
- A new chapter “Extensibility Scenarios – When To Use Which Option” was added, which includes a detailed list of criteria.
- A new chapter “Your Way to the Cloud from an On-Premise Environment with SAP S/4HANA” was added, which depicts the way from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
So, it is definitely worth reading.
Im addition, I want to mention a second document that was recently published.
Guidance for Extensibility in SAP S/4 HANA Cloud, Single tenant edition
Guidance for Extensibility in SAP S/4 HANA Cloud, Extended Edition
These document provides a very detailed list of guidelines for extensions techniques, which can be used in a SAP S/4 HANA Cloud, Single tenant edition. But I think this document is also useful for developers of SAP S/4 HANA (on premise) as a guidance for choosing the right extensions techniques.
