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
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
