Hello Team

Could you please let me know which would be the best practice to use? Either 1511 or 1610
We are in the initial stage of a POC and looking forward for a Big Time project as well.
Since now we heard 1503 is ruled over by 1511, and since then before we digest, SAP has introduced and released 1610 last month, could you please advice which would be better to proceed further (either 1511 or 1610)

We are considering the Finance and Controlling part (E2E) including the Cash management and Consolidation.

Kindly let us know which would be the best to start up and any links on what is New in 1610 over 1511 so that we can include that as well would be appreciated.

If you are starting your journey now start with 1610. If has more FI features and innovations than 1503, 1511, 1605. So you are on the latest release and can easily plan your upgrades to FPS01, FPS02 and 1709 as you progress in the lifecycle of your project.

Please read my blog to get an idea of what is new.

If you are looking from Finance perspective, you should go ahead with S/4HANA 1610. The single biggest business case is a real time Consolidation using embedded BPC Component. S/4HANA 1605 is the last functionality improvement on Finance Add on and the adoption path from SAP clearly suggests that from S/4HANA 1605 Finance the only option is to migrate to S/4HANA 1610 EM.

For the features, please have a look at the simplification list
