Determining which functionality to implement or activate from an SAP enhancement package poses a significant challenge. To simplify this process, SAP now offers a free service called Business Function Prediction, which uses real data from your system to recommend functionality specifically for your needs. Learn how the service works and how SAP plans to enhance it in the future.

SAP enhancement packages were designed to give companies the flexibility to add only needed functionality to their SAP systems. However, assessing what functionality to implement or activate can be more challenging than many companies expect.

To help companies streamline this process, SAP has introduced a free service that delivers a custom report with specific recommendations based on your company’s existing system usage (Figure 1). The service, called Business Function Prediction, has so far helped more than 250 companies plan their enhancement package implementations.

“Customers don’t want to have to browse through more than 300 single business functions in order to find out exactly what they need,” says Christian Oehler, solution expert at SAP. “Business Function Prediction gives our customers a chance, based on current system usage, to get an overview of relevant functionality from SAP specifically for them.”
