Any documentation on ESS 5.0 vs 6.0

Does anyone have any information on what are the major changes from ESS 5.0 to 6.0?

Or are there any good documentation about ESS 6.0?

    I guess you are talking about EHP5 to EHP6.

    There was a question as well yesterday. There is plenty of information on help portals at overview level.

    You should look at always the Business function documentation to check what is new in EHP.

    The main feature introduced in EHP6 is Benefits functionality in WD ABAP.

    List of applications available in EHP5 can be found here

    Please check the link below which tells the delta functionality in BF HCM_ESS_WDA_2.

    The detailed features regarding personal profile can be found in my blog

    Services like Who is who, Employee search, Life and work events (Guided procedures) are not available in WD ABAP yet.

    If you have a choice then I advise you to consider EHP6 since HCM has released a new product called HR Renewal 1.0 based on EHP6 which has many new exciting features beyound ESS/MSS. You can search blogs also on HR Renewal. This product is also in General availability

      I am looking for advise ...if there will be an IDoc message structure change with 6.0.

      Can I download somewhere the IDoc structures of SAP 6.0 ?

      Or can you advise where to lookf for more info ?

      thanks for advise, tomas
