Release Navigator for SAP Business Technology Platform by SAP Enterprise Support

Find Release Content Quickly and Easily

With more than 90 services and products in the SAP Discovery Center as of today, SAP Business Technology Platform offers innovative solutions for every scenario imaginable. Staying up to date on all the ones you are using, and their upcoming new features can be a time-consuming challenge. The more services you use, the more content you need to keep track of: Blog posts, newsletters, videos, podcasts, webcasts, social media channels, webpages… there’s a long list of excellent and helpful content out there to inform you about recently added features but gathering them for each release can take some time.

To make finding these resources more efficient and convenient, the Readiness@Scale team has launched the Release Navigator for SAP Business Technology Platform.

 

Your SAP BTP Release One-Stop-Shop

The release navigator consolidates essential release content from SAP Product Management, SAP User Assistance, SAP Learning, SAP Enterprise Support, and other areas of the SAP ecosystem – accessing release content has never been easier!

On the Home Page you can find curated essential Release Resources across all of SAP BTP, important Release Dates as well as General Resources that can help you stay up-to-date and get the most out of your SAP BTP products and services.

At the top of the Home Page you can also find resources to help you get the most of the release navigator:

  1. A Guided Tour, created with native SAP Enable Now, which will instruct you how to use the release navigator. – Coming with the next update in Q4 2023
  2. This SAP Community Blog Post for reference.
  3. A Feedback Survey where you can request new topics to be added or provide feedback regarding the usability of the release navigator. This survey is an excellent opportunity for you to tell us how the navigator has worked for you and how we can make your release experience better.

      Hello, Christopher, I have no issue to sign-up and connect to SAP Learning Hub but I'm getting "Access denied" error when trying to access SAP Enterprise Support Value Map.
      I'm facing the issue with the direct link you provided but it is also the same issue if I search for SAP Enterprise Support Value Map in the Learning Hub and then click on the first result like shown in screenshot.

      Hi Marc,

      it is open to all customers and with an S-user, you should be able to access it.

      Have you checked the instructions on this page?

      If the instructions there do not help, please reach out to sapesvaluemaps@sap.com.

      Hope it works out soon!
