      Hi Purvang,

      there is no guide or note yet to describe the conversion from EM 9.0 to SAP Event Management in SAP S/4HANA, because there is no released procedure to do so.

      We are working on that topic.

      If you have a customer, who would be willing to be a pilot, we could discuss potential options.

      Kind regards,
