Comparison APO PP/DS versus SAP S/4 HANA PP/DS. What is the different?

In this blog, I want present a main difference between APO versus SAP S/4 HANA

BACKGROUND:


Recently, I took a part in one interview with a customer from Poland ( due to war in my native Ukraine a lot of companies have frozen SAP projects), and during the conversation, I was asked about the difference between PP/DS in APO and SAP S/4 HANA. After that meeting, I spend a lot of time investigating this topic. Here I published my review.

BUSINESS CASE:


Production Planning and Detailed Scheduling (PPDS) is the production planning part of SAP APO that is now integrated into SAP S/4HANA from 1610-on-premise. The migration of PP/DS to SAP S/4HANA comes with simplifications in CIF infrastructure for the master. Since 1610- on-premise, PP/DS functionality in SAP S/4 HANA is developing and the next releases come with some upgrades and improvements of functionalities.

INTRODUCTION TO PP/DS – APO versus SAP S/4 HANA:

I was trying to include in the table all-important differences with comments, but without deep dive into architecture. Here are the most important things which are needed for business and supply chain overall point of you.

Thank you for your attention. I believe this article was useful for you. Please leave your comments and likes, this is very helpful and important for my next Blogs.
