Announcing release of SAP Cloud Platform Business Rules integration to SAP S/4HANA

SAP S/4HANA is the next-generation business suite product that provides innovated and tightly coupled solutions that support end-to-end business processes integration between SAP S/4HANA core components and SAP software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud solutions

SAP Business Rules Framework (BRFPlus) is used as the business rules management application for defining and processing rules for various applications in S/4HANA.

BRFPlus has a long legacy and have seen many noteworthy upgrades with change in technologies and products. With 1809 release of SAP S/4HANA, it is now integrated seamlessly with SAP Cloud Platform Business Rules. It means that you can now model your ABAP-based rules from SAP Cloud Platform and with one-click, you can directly deploy them to your S/4HANA on-premise backend system.

 

Earlier this year we released direct deployment to SAP HANA and SAP Cloud Platform, and with CW38 we release direct deployment to S/4HANA on-premise (1809 release).

Business rules is moving closer to its much-anticipated vision of giving its end user a unified experience with rules modelling – with one rules authoring workbench, central rule repository and effective rules governance and management platform.

Leverage this new invention in SAP Cloud Platform Business Rules to simplify your rules management experience by getting rid of different rules modelling workbenches and effectively deriving digital transformation with S/4HANA.

  • This sounds very promising.

    I’m assuming this is all included in 1809 without extra licenses. Can you tell us where DSM sits in this vision? If business rules can be deployed seamlessly and turned into APIs, and we can build UI for end-users to maintain business data directly in UI5, is there really a need to pay extra for DSM?

    Thanks.

     

    • DSM targets distributed ABAP based application system. SAP Cloud Platform Business Rules is envisioned to be a cloud based central decision services across SAP solutions(S/4HANA, C/4HANA, Cloud Lob solutions like Leonardo, SFSF etc). By nature it also supports hybrid deployment(Cloud based design time with On Premise Runtime).

      At the moment SAP Cloud Platform Business Rules integration with BRF+ is for small subset of runtime stereo types that DSM/BRF+ can do and the Rule Service post deployment can be accessed only via ABAP. Wrapping the invocation as a OData Service post deployment to S/4HANA is still not available.
