Hi,

We already implemented this scenario. Most of the data-sources will work fine in S4.

Few points you need to consider,

1> RFC connection you may need to change it to ODP enabled.

2> In ODP enabled connection, only ODP enabled data-sources will be replicated in BW. you can release DS to ODP though. Refer OSS note 2232584.

3> There will change in COPA data-sources. In ECC you may be using costing based accounting and copa data-sources. But in S4 you will be using accounting based so you need to use ACDOCA data-sources.

4> Same way there may be change in credit limit scenario in S4 so if you are using 0FI_AR_9 data-source then you need to look for alternative data-source and change the report according to new scenario in S4.

likewise there may be other changes in process in s4 based on your business needs which you may need to change in BW as well.

Thanks,

Bhavin

Look at the Product Availability Matrix for info on interoperability:

However, generally speaking you should be able to connect most (recent) versions of BW to S/4, including BW 7.40. The main issues being the source system type and the Business Content version on your BW. Source systems (and extractors) for S/4 should be ODP-type, instead of the classic S-API type. Also your BI Content version on BW 7.4 may not yet have the latest Business Content for S/4.
