Enterprise Management Layer for SAP S/4HANA – What’s New – Release 2022
Welcome to the first Update for Release 2022
With these posts, I provide regular updates on the enterprise management layer for SAP S/4HANA.
This post outlines new scope items and new functionality included in the new release of the enterprise management layer. Scope items that existed in previous releases might have been updated, for example, due to new functionality being available in release 2022 or due to new legal requirements in some countries.
For a complete overview of changes of SAP Best Practices scope items, see the What’s New information on help.sap.com.
For a complete overview of scope items we added to the enterprise management layer previously, for release 2021, please see the What’s New posts of my blog.

New Service Option including Advanced Intercompany Sales with Valuated Stock in Transit (5D2) and Advanced Intercompany Stock Transfer (5HP)
Service Option [VP01] enables both scenarios 5D2 and IC21 – Intercompany sales with and without VSIT. However, it is currently not possible to run both in parallel. (Both are triggered by sales order type ‘OR’ and item category ‘TAN’).

Hi Petra OHLINGER,
It's a good information on EML. Any specific reason why the Universal Parallel Accounting (UPA) is available in selective countries like USA, Germany, France, Japan, and Romania.?
I am not aware of the reasons and am not involved in defining the roadmap for UPA. I can recommend this blog, which has many links that provide information.

Thanks and regards,
Thanks for the information..
Do you know The enterprise management layer for SAP S/4HANA release 2022 is available now? or is there any specific date?
Also whether the availability of EML for SAP S4HANA is release specific of FPS specific ? I am asking because S4HANA 2022 FPS01 released on 21.02.2022. will EML be available for that FPS as well?
The enterprise management layer is now available for release 2022 FPS00.
There will be an updated version for FPS01, probably later in April.
Thanks and regards,
Thank you so much Petra..I have one small query.
currently we are in S4HANA 2021 FPS02 with EML. and for your information this is fresh system installed and delivered by SAP on 3rd of Feb this year(RISE with SAP). No one has yet accessed it.
can we upgrade to S4HANA2022 FPS01? or we need to wait until EML is available for S4HANA FPS01, i.e later April? Not sure how it works from Version upgrade perspective..
Looking forward to hear your expert opinion on this .As always thanks for your help..
you can either have your system upgraded and then regression-test the business processes or - if no or no substantial work has been done in your system replace with a new EML image. We should discuss your concrete case. You can send me an email.
Thanks and regards,
