For more than 35 years, SAP has been honing the tools and methodologies that help our customers adopt new business software functionalities. The result: optional enhancement packages that enable you to take advantage of the ongoing innovations you need – when you need them.
The enhancement package for the SAP ERP application provides new or improved software functionality that you can implement in a modular fashion. There's no need to run a major upgrade project. And, you keep your core software stable while you activate only the new features and technical improvements you want – on your own timetable – to add the most value to your business.
Innovate According to Your Schedule: Benefit from a Selective, Nondisruptive Approach
SAP designed the enhancement package for SAP ERP to easily deliver business- and industry-specific functionality, enterprise services bundles, and other functions that enhance and simplify the use of the SAP ERP application through improvements to the user interface and processes.
You can activate the latest enhancement package via the switch framework, which gives you the flexibility to choose what you want to implement, helps isolate impacted objects, and minimizes testing requirements. This rapid, nonintrusive deployment of selected improvements enables you to innovate benefit from superior solution fit without risking side effects to other parts of your applications.
Enhanced Functionality as Enterprise Services: Streamlining Basic Business Processes
Based on service-oriented architecture (SOA), our enhancement package for SAP ERP delivers functionality that streamlines basic business processes, improves employee productivity, sharpens business insight, and enables you to adapt quickly to changing industry requirements.
The enhancement package includes collections, or bundles, of enterprise services. Each bundle provides new services, as well as documentation on how the services can help extend and reconfigure processes or groups of related processes. Each bundle includes explanations of relevant processes, groups of processes, and roles, along with descriptions of business objects and tips on how to put the new services to work.
SAP is the first software provider to use SOA to deliver new functionality, enterprise services bundles, and simplified user interfaces through enhancement packages. Enterprise services are one of the ways that SAP is implementing a program of service as part of our strategy to provide SOA across all products. SAP customers and partners can suggest ideas for new services and help develop them by participating in the Enterprise Services Community program.
