We are happy to announce the availability of SAP Event Management on SAP S/4HANA (SAP S/4HANA EM).

SAP S/4HANA EM is a business application to enable real-time end-to-end business process visibility and status monitoring. It provides a broad scope of functions to monitor the execution of your business processes, report events, and automatically react on planned or unplanned situations.

SAP S/4HANA EM is a porting of the well-proven SAP Event Management 9.2 to the SAP S/4HANA environment. It is available for on-premise installations and instances of SAP S/4HANA Supply Chain for transportation management in private cloud. SAP S/4HANA EM can be installed either as a “stand-alone” solution, or, as an add-on on SAP S/4HANA full stack. The minimum version of SAP S/4HANA supported is 1809.

SAP S/4HANA EM comes with a set of pre-configured tracking scenarios for transportation management. A limited license of SAP S/4HANA EM for use in transportation management scenarios is included in the licenses of SAP Transportation Management and SAP S/4HANA Supply Chain for transportation management.

The functional scopes of SAP Event Management 9.2 and SAP S/4HANA EM are almost identical. Nevertheless, SAP S/4HANA EM is a new product due to the different underlying technology stack in SAP S/4HANA. There is no upgrade path. For migrations from Event Management 9.2 to SAP S/4HANA EM a conversion project is required.

SAP S/4HANA EM is designed for internal use within the boundaries of your organization. As a track & trace solution to support mutual visibility, collaboration, and data exchange with multiple business partners in your supply network we recommend SAP Logistics Business Network, global track and trace option.

More information is available on the help portal page of SAP Event Management on SAP S/4HANA.
