SAP Support Package Stacks

A set of support packages and patches for a product version that are best implemented together

About Support Package Stacks

Support package stacks allow you to keep productive applications up to date on a regular basis with a minimal cost of ownership.

The introduction of minimum support package stack levels gives you more flexibility in planning your maintenance activities by reducing the range of possible combinations. Benefits include:

  • Enhanced quality of single support packages - corrections are less complex 
  • SAP specifically tests combinations of support package stacks, improving the quality and compatibility
  • Download pages simplify downloading the required support packages and patches
  • Reduced time and effort needed to apply corresponding support packages and patches
  • Problems can be preempted or solved faster

You may need more than the minimum recommendations when realizing upgrade or implementation projects.
