    Functionally Enterprise is more or less identical to 4.6c in fact the release is 4.7 indicating the changes are slight. It's the technology that underlies (BASIS layer) that is radically different. Essentially a full J2EE runtime environment and Web Dynpro open up some really exciting possibilities for transactional web services and integration with portals for rolling out custom functionality on a global scale, ESS and custom apps for light users.

    Also, XML messages can be exchanged for interfaces with other systems, legacy data import/export, raising PO's etc.

    From the business side, it's just like 4.6c.

    However, after the upgrade, you need to thoroughly test all the roles against the test scripts. We had to amend nearly every role so they still worked as they did under 4.6c.

    Not sure if it was just the way we set the roles up, but this was the biggest change we found.
