I’m happy to announce that it is now also possible to create estimates in Discovery Center to bring services, missions and estimates closer together.

To use the newly introduced SAP BTP Discovery Center Estimator open and log on. Afterwards you have three possibilities to access the Estimator.

1. Via Control Center link

In the Control Center click on “Estimates”:

2. Via the menu “Estimator Basket” directly to the “My Estimates in Control Center” or

Create New Estimate

To create a new estimate click on the “+ Create New Estimate” tile in the Control Center “Estimates” menu bar.

Edit Structure

Customize Estimate

Click “Customize Estimate” to change information around the license model (CPEA or Pay-as-you-Go) or the “Estimation Period”:

If the new estimate should also be accessible via the calculator icon “Estimator Basket” in the menu bar, then set to default via the “…” on the tile:
