Live Product Expert Sessions Throughout 2022

Fig. 1: Overview of Live Product Expert Sessions planned throughout 2022. The SAP S/4HANA Cloud release and update cycle is following SAP’s Release Plan and may be changed by SAP without notice, therefore the global enablement plans can change as well.  


With the above focus of the sessions in mind, let’s take a look at the global live session plan for 2022. For the two major releases SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2202 and SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2208, we plan on showing and demoing highlights of the releases during the Early Release Series which is happening 1-2 weeks before shipment.

In the first half year (H1) 2022, we held the first Delta Training of this year with a focus on SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2202. In the second half of the year (H2) 2022, we have planned for the next Delta Training focusing on SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2208 as well as SAP S/4HANA 2022. As not only SAP S/4HANA Cloud topics, but also private cloud topics will be covered, we are planning for an extended Delta Training running over two weeks.

The new Product Update Series is planned to take place at the end of H1 and at the end of H2 in order to cover the innovations which are coming in between major releases. Focus of this format are continuous deliveries for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, innovations running on the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) as well as topics like SAP Central Business Configuration.

On a quarterly basis, we’re hosting In-Depth with SAP S/4HANA which is a format that is running independently from releases. In these sessions, we cover specific topics in-depth to get a more holistic insight into certain aspects of the product. As this series is not bound to releases, it depends on topic suggestions from our stakeholders. If you’d like to nominate topics, simply do so via this blog post.
