Velocity’s SAP HANA Upgrade services will bring your HANA systems up-to-date with the latest service pack released by SAP.
Take advantage of new Service Packs for your SAP HANA installation and upgrades. Enjoy newfeatures and functions such as Dynamic Tiering and Multi-tenant Database Containers features available in newer HANA service pack updates.
As in all SAP installations, customers should have a maintenance strategy to keep their SAP HANA systems up-to-date as per SAP’s recommendation. SAP releases service pack update for HANA twice a year at the end of March and end of September. In between, SAP releases Revisions and Maintenance Revisions to fix system bugs on a regular basis.
For a productive HANA system, customers should stay on older SPS and apply maintenance revisions until the next SAP HANA Data Centre Service Point (DSP) is reached; pt. 73 and 82. A DSP is a point in time where SAP provides customers with guidance regarding the prerequisites for upgrading to HANA.
When a DSP is reached, customers should start planning for their next major SPS upgrade which will be released in March or September. In the meantime, they should start applying HANA Revisions releases leading to the next SPS upgrade.
With a properly planned HANA maintenance strategy, customers need not endure disruptive upgrades, and get to enjoy incremental benefits throughout the lifespan of their HANA systems. Contact us for an assessment and let us work with you to plan your SAP HANA upgrade strategy.
