  • This describes the evolution of SAP R/3 to mySAP ERP. The big story behind mySAP ERP today is the movement to enterprise services Over 300 services delivered with mySAP ERP 2005 One central repository Over 1000+ certified ISV adding value to the platform This is the platform we want customer to go to…. As announced this week…we are moving to smaller package releases that will be built on top of ERP 2005
  • Leveraging enterprise SOA to accelerate SAP Business Suite excellence New composition environment SAP Business Suite based on SAP NetWeaver - Service-enabled - Stable core: SAP ERP 6.0 will be the stable foundation for our customers until the next major suite release, currently planned for 2010. The new release strategy for mySAP ERP provides the predictability that customers need in planning investments around and managing their core IT infrastructure. It provides the transparency they need to determine what they need to adopt, and when. And, we’re now enabling customers to adopt innovations based on their business needs, thereby reducing their ongoing cost of ownership, and improving the overall fit of their core applications to their unique business needs. - Switch framework
  • Walk through
  • Every change is “hidden” behind a switch About 50 BF delivered with EhP 2 that can be activated separately. In the background happens a lot, activation of code an DDIC objects. Switch and Enhancement Framework is not totally new and already well test: IS retrofit. This way you buy in a technology that is well proven though it is brand-new.
  • The user can go deeper to find more details, such as: Name and technical name of the business function Description of new features. The most detailed presentation format for enhancement packages is the “details” format, e.g. “SAP enhancement package 2 for SAP ERP 6.0: Details” (above is an extract).
  • SAP enhancement packages contain also a certain level of corrections therefore require an equivalent Support Package Level for the Software Components which remain on version 600, therefore EHPs should always be installed together with the required Support Package Stack. As a consequence customers have to adjust possible modifications and test the application, however this was the same with the pure Support Package Stack installation. Efforts should be expected to be comparable or slightly higher.
  • Speaker notes: The switch transaction shows all the business functions that can now be activated after the installation of the 3 new software components. The customer is currently only interested in the BF “Retail Buying”. For each BF, this transaction provides direct links to documentation, release info, etc. Result: The coding of the 3 software components has been completely updated. Before an activation of the business functions, the system does not yet change its behavior. After the installation, the customer executes the SPAU transaction to check and manage his affected modifications. Activities (BEFORE) View the list of business functions available with the latest system setup Access documentation, release notes, test catalogue, and possible dependencies Install the relevant documentation, refer to SAP note 1066110 Benefits Transparency of all system and UI changes that will take place Activities (AFTER) Activate the chosen business functions Configure the chosen business functions Benefits New coding becomes effective only where activated Faster implementation because only activated parts are configured No change in system behavior before the activation (ECC) Stability for all other parts of the solution
  • THE BENEFITS OF THE NEW ENHANCEMENT PACKAGE APPROACH INCLUDE MEAN YOU: Gain stability and access to innovation Upgrade only the enhancements applicable to your business Reduce risk and downtime Speed implementation and test less Reduce training effort

  • Quick Facts Installation of new functionality separated from activation via Switch Framework
      • Preamble
      • SAP enhancement packages are shipped as a delta shipment to SAP ERP 6.0
      • Selective Installation
      • Each SAP enhancement package contains new versions of existing software components
      • You only update software components, which are related to the functionality you want to use.
      • After installation:
        • No UI or process change until a Business Function is activated
        • However SAP enhancement packages require defined ERP Support Package Stack
      • Selective Activation
      • New functionality must be explicitly switched on to become active in the system.
      • If activated:
        • Changes are predictable , only well described changes in the activated areas.
        • Testing is simplified with templates, provided for every Business Function

  • Motivation: Evolution of SAP Architecture Technology Application © SAP 2008 / Page / EHP Technology Facts 3.0 / Christian Oehler
  • Example: SAP enhancement package 2 Focus: SAP ECC Server Facts
      • Selective, component-wise installation: With SAP EHPs you can selectively update software components. Matching combinations of software components, as well as PI/EP/BI-content and Java software components are grouped by Technical Usages. As the number of software components are limited, e.g. a separated installation of logistics and financials (both are located in the core software component SAP/EA_APPL) is not possible.
      • Strict separation of technical installation and the implementation of the new functionality: Explicit activation separately for each Business Function (with EHP3: ~150 Business Functions). However only Backend functionality (ABAP) is switchable.

  • Switch Framework Enables Optional Activation of Business Functions With the Switch Framework it is possible to control the activation of SAP ERP objects. Activating a Business Function triggers switches. The switch controls whether the switch-controlled code is executed or not at runtime. The Switch Framework is a proven concept (already used to retrofit Industry Solutions in ERP 6.0). Switch Framework SAP ERP (ECC 6.0) Fundament: Enhancement Framework is the solution of SAP NetWeaver 7.0 to allow adaptations of development objects without touching them. All enhancements offered by Enhancement Framework can be switched by the Switch Framework. All reports, includes, classes, function modules, and Web Dynpro ABAP UIs can be changed and enhanced using the Enhancement Framework. The new BAdI is also integrated in the Enhancement Framework. © SAP 2008 / Page / EHP Technology Facts 3.0 / Christian Oehler

A “Business Function” is the activatable unit within the SAP ECC Server Please note: Components which are installed once have to be installed with every future SAP enhancement package installation. Customers who have activated a industry business function set have to include the corresponding industry software component version into the EHP installation. 2 EA_HR 602 Business Package
