Enterprise Management Layer for SAP S/4HANA – What’s New – Release 2022
Welcome to the latest 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 in November
We now provide process flow diagrams for our scope items. The bpmn2 files for upload in SAP Signavio (for example) are available for download in the Documentation Library here, just like our test scripts and other guides. For SAP Best Practices, please see SAP note 3329491 – Consuming Value Accelerators
