Live Expert Sessions

AIE Live Expert Sessions provide a structured overview of concepts and new functionalities. We recommend that you start with a live expert session before using AIE Expert on Demand as usually after a session more details are known, several questions are already answered and new questions come up, which can be clarified afterwards.

Sharing AIE Live Expert Sessions with other customers (the number will be limited to very few) has the advantage that other participants might have additional questions and business aspects, which otherwise would not have been covered.

AIE Expert on Demand Request

AIE Expert on Demand requests are available in addition to AIE Live Expert Sessions. We recommend that you start with AIE Live Expert Sessions to build up your general knowledge on EHPs.

In case additional questions remain open, these questions can be addressed to SAP experts via AIE Expert-on-Demand requests.

In scope are:

Specific questions concerning the new functionalities on the latest EHPs Technical questions about EHP Architecture, EHP Installation

Methodology

SAP Enhancement Packages allow you to decide which functionality and software innovations from SAP to implement using the SAP Switch Framework. The Accelerated Innovation Enablement service for SAP Enterprise Support is an essential element of SAP Enterprise Support. SAP provides up to five (5) remote person days (per calendar year) assistance and enablement per customer helping to evaluate the innovation capabilities of the latest SAP Enhancement Package.
