EHP7 Technical Upgrade without activating Business Function - Impact on ESS and MSS

Hi Experts,

With regards to EHP7 update, I am seeking your attention and assistance on another query as below:

we are at EHP3 and looking forward to go to EHP7 , only technical upgrade - we are not going to activate buisness function.

As I explored and found that there are huge change and new features in EHP4 in E modules, like E-rec, talent management, ESS MSS - I woould like to know is there any impact on existing application running on ESS/MSS with news features come up with EHP4, EHP5, EHP6,EHP7 even if we DONT activate buisness function.

Lets take an example, we have self service on behalf of application on MSS as of now on EHP3, it will be there in EHP 7 as well but will there be any impact on the funcationality or features if we are not activating buisness function?? Same ways, we have so many new features in EHP 7 for E-rec, LSO, but will they exist if we do not active buisness function.

Seeking your expert inputs on this.

Many thanks & regards

Priya.

    There might be some dependency, if you needs accurate info then probably help.sap.com is best place, read the documentation on the respective business function.

    If u don't activate then u will not be able to see the SPRO config for that.

    There will probably be some minor changes but most of them will not be visible. That's why you have the business functions to activate.

    But therefore you also normally perform an upgrade on a sandbox to see what changes (or on DEV)

    Thanks Jwala and Yugandhar,

    I would again like to draw your attention on my concern:

    * What all application could have impact or have any visible changes when we are doing only technical upgrade, not Buisness function is activated.

    * We are aware and have explored that N number of new features and changes are there in EHP7 if we activate buisness function - so before suggesting this to client, we are on due deligence phase, what all functional configuration we need to do.

    Experts, I really can not forecast, what all things we need to do being a functional consultant in the both cases, if we activate buisness function or Not.

    Looking forward for inputs.

    Many thanks.

    Regards

    Priya
