In this blog, we are going to introduce the Release Assessment and Scope Dependency tool to the S/4HANA Cloud Community and share the new functionality available on the tool with the 2002 release.

One of the challenges that customers face is in being able to consume SAP S/4HANA release information which is provided to the them with every quarterly upgrade of S/4HANA Cloud and what they need to do, in testing for example. The Release Assessment tool enables customers to visualize their S/4HANA scope, understand the changes and new functionality available with an upgrade and also guides them on potential innovations or new scope items that might be relevant to them

The S/4HANA Cloud Release Assessment and Scope Dependency tool (RASD) was launched with the 1905 release last year with this vision. The tool is relevant for S/4HANA Public Cloud customers and is available for customers, partner consultants and SAP Internal employees.  In case of customers the analysis is based on activated scope while for partners and SAP internals the analysis is based on the overall S/4HANA Cloud scope.

. The tool has the following salient features

  • Personalized scope analysis for customers based on activated business processes
