In addition to the Simplification List for SAP S/4HANA published as PDF document in SAP Help (see: Link) we provide the Simplification List in a XLS-based format. The attachement is stored in the following SAP Note: https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2313884

The attached XLS provides per Simplification Item the following information (columns of the XLS):

  • Simplification Item Area:
    Functional Area of the Simplififaction Item (for example Master Data, Sales & Distribution, Procurement …)
  • Simplification Item title:
    Title of a Simplfication Item
  • Application Component:
    Related Application Component of the Simplification Item (several components are possible)
  • Business Impact Note:
    As pre-requisite for a future more customer-specific Simplification List the Simplification Items described in the Simplification List PDF document have been transferred into corresponding SAP Notes. These SAP Notes describe the Business Impact of a Simplification Item. The information is the same information provided within the PDF document.
  • Simplification Category
    Containing the category of the simplification. The simplification items can be categorized based on their type of impact:
    • Re-architecting for SAP HANA in-memory platform
      Used for functionality that is optimized to leverage the capabilities of the SAP HANA database, for example the new data model.
    • Consolidation of existing functionalities
      Functionality that is unified in the core and optimized according to the principle of one, but from a business process and user perspective, the functionality basically remains the same.
    • No functional equivalent
      Compared to the SAP Business Suite, there may be no functional equivalent available in the SAP S/4HANA On-premise edition delivery, because SAP S/4HANA is not a legal successor of an SAP Business Suite product. Alternative functionality with application innovation is in many cases already available in an SAP S/4HANA scope, or it is on the roadmap.

With the release of SAP S/4HANA 1610 we attached a corresponding XLS for SAP S/4HANA 1610.
