I’m pleased to share with you the first in a series of blog posts dedicated to SAP Document and Reporting Compliance.
In today’s blog post, I’ll discuss how you can use the SAP Help Portal to make the most of your SAP Document and Reporting Compliance solution. I’ll share the key resources available on the SAP Help Portal, I’ll explain how you can find and filter information to meet your local requirements, and I’ll provide an overview of country/region-specific functions.
