SAP partners, don’t miss the opportunity to build your brand by getting your solutions in front of the respective SAP Product Managers and, for the selected solutions, in front of the requesting SAP customers themselves.

SAP has several formal and informal methods for SAP Product Managers to collect customer enhancement requests. The Product Managers triage these requests into three paths to build the enhancement:

  • Roadmap: where SAP will build it,

  • White Space: where SAP will work with one partner to build it, and

  • Open Space: where SAP invites any partner to build it.


Here are the current open space customer challenges:

  • Challenge #1:
    SAP S/4HANA customers are requesting: Provide a change log for key changes to projects in Professional Services Automation – current log shows “last changed” only. Please create a saved history to track changes to project like sales prices, etc. - this will provide better insights and audit trail for projects.


  • Challenge #2:
    SAP S/4HANA customers are requesting: Provide multi-page OCR processing for invoices in Sourcing & Procurement. To allow multiple invoices to be scanned in a single session and able to be saved as separate invoices by recognition of design specifics of different invoices within a stack.
