Question & Answer

Q: Is Cloud Foundry the go forward?

A: for launchpad it is cloud foundry

Q: which version of S/4HANA is spaces available?

A: 2020 provided out of the box

1809 onward can use spaces/pages

Need to move to front end server

Q: Can Fiori apps used with Suite on HANA and if we migrate to S/4HANA can they be reused?

A: Most apps on suite on HANA don’t work with S/4HANA; need to check SAP Fiori reference library to see which apps work on both

Q: Integration with SAC with Fiori Launchpad?

A: S/4HANA has integration with SAC today – embedded

Going forward, have SAC embedded in SAP Cloud Platform Launchpad
