Although, SAP has provided hundreds of standard applications that have been built on pretty standard process flow, these standard applications cannot satisfy the needs of every SAP customer. There will always be some gap between the required function and the existing standard functions. To fill up such gaps, SAP has provided some entry points into the standard flow called SAP Enhancement Framework by way of which, customers can modify the provided process flow and still leverage from SAP’s features.

So, question of the hour is, what is this SAP Enhancement Framework?

In layman’s terms, if SAP programs are considered as homes, then enhancement framework would be many ways (authorized back gates) to get into these homes and modify.

With current SAP Enhancement Framework, SAP has given different options through which enhancements can be done:

  • Business Add Ins (BAdI)
  • User Exits
  • Customer Exit
  • Implicit and Explicit Enhancements

These are some of approaches how the standard ABAP objects can be modified.

Enhancement Set for SAP WebUI

For the modules that require web application like SAP CRM, SAP SRM or even SAP Solution Manager, SAP has provided its own Web UI framework with appropriate web applications (UI Components). Although these standard web applications are optimized for general purpose, there is an option of Enhancing these standard UI Components via UI Component Workbench. This helps to give users the UI that they are comfortable with and also fulfilling the custom requirements without distorting the standard code.

  • Better upgrade support
  • Switching of enhancements with the Switch Framework
  • Support for grouping enhancements and appropriate tool support for documentation.
