    1503 or 1511 ?

    Michael Dybevick

      We are preparing to re-deploy our financials on S/4 HANA, including stores, purchasing, and project systems. This will be followed as soon as possible by integration of our IS-U and CCS systems. For all practical purposes this is a new installation.


      Is there any reason not to start with the latest and greatest - 1511/sp01? Are there any instabilities that are just now emerging?


      If we start with 1503 will there be a significant effort to convert of the financial tables again when we move up to 1511?


      Has anybody else had to think this one through yet?

          if this is a greenfield implementation, you might consider 1511, as w 1503 you only get S/4HANA Finance, and you would have to do the material document converison and other items from the simplification list later on in another project.

            Will the new "Business Partner Approach" present any problems when the current IS-U customers are merged into a 1511 financial system? It is not clear whether there will be an S/4 version of IS-U before we are ready to combine the systems.

              I would  not recommend customers  to   go  for  1511  unless they  have an only Financials  implementations.  If they are using Treasury and Cash Management in  their  earlier SAP  system ,  you may need to  buy additional  licenses to use  Cash Management on Hana.

              Customers  with a large logistics   footprint would  be well  advised to  wait  for  1611  where most  restrictions  would have been lifted
