Periodic updates – no need for upgrades on the Client’s side

How will the system be updated in relation to the life cycle of the basic S/4HANA Cloud offer? How are patches and new innovations delivered in the cloud?

SAP is changing into a cloud solution, therefore a number of Cloud applications have been added and work has been undertaken to integrate these solutions on a single platform. As a result of these changes, the obligation to update the application system was transferred from the Client to the SAP team.

SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud update scheme

Semi-annual updates are performed as follows:

  • Q (quality) systems are modernized first.
  • P (production) systems and all other types of systems are updated 2 weeks later.

Every Client is notified of the update by mail 6 weeks before the system update (Q).

As described in the Release and Update Cycle of S/4HANA Cloud methodology provided by SAP Activate, there are three types of lifecycle events in S/4HANA Cloud: corrections, feature updates, and release upgrades.

When and how are SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud updates performed?

A detailed system update schedule is included in SAP Activate. It includes the necessary changes applied to the Client’s systems along with the designated dates of their launch. The colors of the bars in the schedule (green, gold, and red) represent corrections, features, and upgrades. The update and upgrade numbers are indicated in the white boxes, where updates are numbered after each major release.

The Client is informed about the planned changes and has the opportunity to test the solutions in the Quality environment.
