What's New Viewer - SAP S/4HANA

Name Suffix “New” Dropped for Financial Accounting, G/L Accounting, and Asset Accounting

Previously in documentation and in Customizing, a distinction was made between classical and new G/L Accounting and Asset Accounting, as well as between classical and new Financial Accounting. Since in SAP S/4HANA, only new Financial Accounting, new G/L Accounting, and new Asset Accounting are available exclusively, the distinction between “classical” and “new” is no longer necessary. For this reason, the “New” suffix has been dropped as of release SAP S/4HANA 1709.

The distinction between “classical” and “new” is only kept in a few cases to make matters clear, for example, in documentation that refers to migration to SAP S/HANA.
