SAP customers have long been able to tailor SAP standard applications to their needs using various extension options, such as predefined extension points and modifications. SAP S/4HANA and the cloud, however, bring with them demands such as rapid onboarding and software update cycles, requiring a new framework for extending applications. This article introduces the extensibility framework delivered with SAP S/4HANA 1511 and 1610. It explains the different extensibility approaches and walks through an example of using in-app extensibility — an approach that enables users to add features to applications using intuitive, web-based tools, without diving into the full details of the underlying code.
