SAP Upgrade Weekend Support

SAP Upgrade Weekend Support applies to an upgrade project during your go-live weekend or holiday weekend. You are assigned named SAP contacts who are dedicated to your project for the designated weekend. This service speeds up the resolution process by tracking the messages created by your upgrade project team until their resolution.

Delivery Details

The SAP Upgrade Weekend Support is delivered remotely by two SAP support consultants. In line with your upgrade project, SAP schedules SAP Upgrade Weekend Support to minimize risk during your upgrade go-live date, which generally falls on a weekend or holiday.  If an issue arises, we ensure that the message processing cycle begins and that SAP's global resources are accessible.

With SAP Upgrade Weekend Support, you save time and money with:

  • Direct SAP contact to accelerate access to SAP experts
  • Coordinated communication with SAP's worldwide resource

SAP Upgrade Weekend Support can assist you when:

  • You are performing a critical technical upgrade
  • You expect difficulties during the go-live

Note: While SAP Upgrade Weekend Support is targeted to support release upgrade, SAP cannot guarantee that other upgrades like Enhancement Package implementations can be covered.

You are contacted by an SAP Support Consultant in the week before the go-live weekend. Contact details for the weekend are exchanged - for example, telephone and mobile numbers, e-mail addresses. A current status of the project and any additional concerns can be highlighted at this time

You are assigned two named contact persons from SAP who are dedicated to your project for the designated weekend. These SAP support consultants are on-duty to speed up the resolution process of messages created by your upgrade project team. The SAP support consultants track the messages until they are solved.

Cover starts at the pre-agreed time. The minimum contract is for the timeframe from 18:00 (6:00 pm) on Friday to 06:00am on Monday morning. If extended service is needed additional service for 2 days can be booked. If a problem is encountered during the weekend, you create a message with priority Very High and the named support consultants should be contacted with the message number immediately.

The SAP support consultants will track the message and communicate internally with support colleagues in an effort to speed up the message solving process. They can liaise with processors and duty managers, help co-ordinate if there is a cross-over in time zones and keep you updated at all times.

This remote service has a minimum duration of 2 days over a weekend or extended holiday weekend. This service is billable and should your project requirements exceed the core weekend, you can purchase additional coverage for 2 days service.

The prerequisites for the SAP Upgrade Weekend Support are as follows:
