Harmonizing Cloud Release Content for You

Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you need to locate and process during a release, given how quickly innovation is advancing? When finding the right content becomes time-consuming, releases can become a daunting task. We hear you and want releases to be exciting and easy, which is why the Readiness@Scale team at SAP has launched the new release navigator for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition.

Now you can achieve maximum business value from your cloud solution and keep innovation moving with the latest intelligent ERP capabilities by sustainably adopting new release innovations and functionalities with our expert guidance.

Minimizing the Effort

The release navigator consolidates essential release content from SAP Product Engineering, SAP User Assistance, SAP Learning, SAP Enterprise Support and other areas of the SAP ecosystem organized by Lines of Business (LoB's), Industries, and Cross-Topics. Accessing release content has next been easier! Built-in guided tours, created with native SAP Enable Now software, will teach you how to use various SAP tools and websites to locate content when a release comes. The release navigator will have bi-yearly updates in alignment with the two major releases for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition, and those dates can be found within the Release Calendar tile (see Figure 1: My Home). 

At the initial launch, the following LoB’s/Industries/Cross-Topics will be included:

Lines of Business:

  • Asset Management
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Manufacturing
  • R&D/Engineering
  • Sales
  • Service
  • Sourcing & Procurement
  • Supply Chain
  • Sustainability

Industries:

  • Higher Education & Research
  • Media
  • Mill Products
  • Mining
  • Oil & Gas
  • Professional Services

  • SAP Central Invoice Management
  • SAP Cloud Application Lifecycle Management

Simple & Familiar Navigation

Staying true to our innovative user experience, this new resource has integrated in design concepts from the familiar SAP Fiori Morning Horizon theme for ease of use. The My Home page is divided into three main sections with different corresponding tiles (see Figure 1: My Home).

Sections:

    1. Messages: Contains important information for you to read, and new users have the option to take the guided tour around the release navigator to become familiar with basic usage principals.
    2. Quick Tools: Provides easy access to essential release enablement material provided by the Readiness@Scale team, and includes our customer feedback survey.
    3. Release Resources: Allows you to find release content organized by LoB's, Industries, or Cross-Topics and plan for the next release with the Release Calendar tile.
