SAP recommends the application of support package stacks at least once a year so that all corrections can be implemented. To optimize quality, please note the minimum requirements and apply the support packages and patches specified in the stack together.
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:
Note that customers undergoing upgrade or implementation projects may need more than the minimum recommendations.
The product versions listed in the tables below are supported by support package stacks or will be supported soon. Each support package stack will be led by a certain component or support package track respectively. The corresponding support package is a key part of the stack. The release of the first support package stack marks the start of the new strategy for that particular product version.
