In Module Two, we are focusing on "Innovating for the Future with SAP Support." Through your SAP support investment, you have access to a wide variety of tools and reports that will help you simplify your search for new functionality for your current landscape, identify areas of improvement of business processes and IT optimization, and understand how SAP S/4HANA can provide you simplified business scenarios. These tools and reports are yours as an SAP maintenance customer.
