We are into process industry and using SAP ECC 6.
We have also made lots of development related to CIN.
Our SAP_APPL patch level is 14 (SAPKH60014).
Presently we need to apply so many notes specifically due to CIN related changes and in 90% of notes
mentioned that correction included in next patch i.e. may be in 17,18 etc.
We plan to upgrade patch level or go for EHP4.
I need your valuable suggestion whether to go for a path upgrade or updagrade ECC 6 to EHP4.
Is there any document which provide me which Technical and functional future/benefit
are available in EHP4 compare to ECC 6.
Thanks in advance,
The starting point to get information about EHPs is http://service.sap.com/erp-ehp.
You can see there documents with technical information, overview of functionality, etc.
http://service.sap.com/bfp has got information about the Business Function Prediction service, which you may use to get to know what would be the technical usages your company would benefit most of.
I hope this information helps.
Even thou you upgrade EHP4 you need support packs. e.g EHP4 SP08 is equivelent to ECC6.0 SP18.
Just wanted to clarify :
Enhancement pack will bring new functionalities ( enhancement in your landscape) which is optional and on-demand.
But support pack is mandatory for legal changes and bug fixes.
