Why would you recommend building SAP Side-by-Side Extensions to an S/4HANA system based on SAP BTP?
There are a few reasons why you would recommend building SAP Side-by-Side Extensions to an S/4HANA system based on SAP BTP.
In addition to these reasons, SAP BTP also allows extensions to maintain SAP user and security context and allow the use of S/4HANA eventing. This is important because it ensures that users are only able to access the data and functionality that they are authorized to access, and it also allows extensions to react to events that occur in S/4HANA.
Therefore, SAP BTP is a good choice for building SAP Side-by-Side Extensions to an S/4HANA system.

As part of the mapping of a Business Architecture to the Solution Architecture, an Environment & Location Diagram must be developed in the Technology Architecture phase. In this context, numerous architecture decisions have to be made. Among other things, you must check which SAP BTP services and which SAP SaaS solutions are available as part of the Solution Architecture in which data center of the desired hyperscaler. How do you go about this validation?
According to the SAP Discovery Center 1 and the SAP Trust Center 2, the steps involved in this validation are:
The other options (A and C) are not correct for how to validate the availability of SAP BTP services and SAP SaaS solutions in the desired hyperscaler’s data center, because they either do not exist or do not provide the required information. For example:
In the SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework, which of the following artifacts are part of the opportunities & solution phase? Note: There are 3 correct answers to this question.

The CIO of Wanderlust strongly feels that the seldom-used legacy Marketing application cannot be the platform to rejuvenate their online marketing business. As Chief Enterprise Architect, the CIO has entrusted you with the responsibility of finding a suitable replacement that can support all current processes and also address the issues plaguing the existing application. Which of the following should you do to conclusively shortlist possible applications to replace the existing one? Note: There are 2 correct answers to this question.
Starting with the current processes will help to understand the capabilities that are needed in a new application. This will help to narrow down the field of potential applications and identify those that are most likely to meet the needs of Wanderlust.
Mapping business capabilities to these processes will help to identify the gaps in the current capabilities and the areas where improvement is needed. This will help to ensure that the new application meets the needs of Wanderlust and addresses the issues plaguing the existing application.
Relating Wanderlust processes to industry standard processes will help to identify applications that are already being used by other organizations. This can be a good way to ensure that the new application is compatible with other systems and that it can be easily integrated with existing systems.
The other two options, Comparing the costs of those market leading online marketing applications and Understanding the features of leading online marketing applications available in the market through product demonstrations and ranking the applications in terms of features, are not as critical at this stage. The costs of the applications can be compared once the shortlist of applications has been finalized. The features of the applications can be understood through product demonstrations once the shortlist has been finalized.
Therefore, the best course of action is to start with the current processes, map business capabilities to these processes, and identify which application(s) in the market can deliver such capabilities. This will help to narrow down the field of potential applications and identify those that are most likely to meet the needs of Wanderlust.
Here are some of the benefits of taking a process-centric approach to selecting a new marketing application:
Green Elk & Company is the world's leading manufacturer of agricultural and forestry machinery. The former company slogan "Elk always runs has recently been changed to "Elk feeds the world". One of Green Elk's strategic goals is to increase its revenue in the emerging markets of China, India, and other parts of Asia by 80% within three years. This requires a new business model that caters to significantly smaller farms with limited budgets. The CIO asks you, the Chief Enterprise Architect, to present an Architecture Roadmap that addresses the business challenge. According to the SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework, what is the best answer?
The SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework (EAF) defines an Architecture Roadmap as a "high-level plan that describes the sequence of activities and deliverables required to achieve the target architecture." The roadmap should be based on the artifacts of the previous phases of the EAF, such as the Business Strategy Map, the Solution Concept, and the Baseline Business and Solution Architecture.
The first step in creating an Architecture Roadmap is to define the initiatives that will be needed to achieve the target architecture. These initiatives should be aligned with the business outcomes that the organization is trying to achieve.
The next step is to detail the business capabilities and solutions that will be needed to support the initiatives. This will help to ensure that the roadmap is realistic and achievable.
Finally, the roadmap should be created in two versions: an outcome-based roadmap and an application-specific roadmap. The outcome-based roadmap will show how the initiatives will achieve the business outcomes. The application-specific roadmap will show how the solutions will be implemented.
By following these steps, you can create an Architecture Roadmap that will help you to achieve your organization's strategic goals.
Here are some of the benefits of creating an Architecture Roadmap:
Therefore, an Architecture Roadmap can be a valuable tool for managing complex transformations.

As the Chief Enterprise Architect of your company you have been asked by the CIO to apply agile principles instead of following the sequential phases of TOGAFS ADM. How do you respond?
The TOGAF® ADM is a cyclic process that allows for iteration and feedback within and across phases. It also supports the use of agile methods in the implementation phase, such as Scrum or Kanban. The SAP EA Framework is based on the TOGAF® ADM and extends it with SAP-specific content and best practices. Therefore, both frameworks are suitable for organizations that follow agile principles.
