Output Type Management in SAP S/4HANA

As of S4/HANA we have a new way of managing Output Type Management (old NACE transaction) – using BRFplus. Together with my two colleagues from Int4 – Michal Michalski and Krzysztof Luka we’ve decided to describe how does this new functionality work and show different options where it can be used (for example with output IDOCs, Ariba integration, SAP AIF Integration).

SAP PRESS publication

SAP Press has published our book with it’s new format: E-bite. E-bites are supposed to be smaller books available only in electronic format and they need to concentrate on a single topic only – in our case BRFplus Output Type Management. Our book contains step-by-step instructions and screenshots that will enable you to explore the new BRFplus Output Type Management with many step by steps guides.

You can buy it here – SAP PRESS shop.
