SAP® Support - as needed
First Level Aid
"As more companies combine on-premise systems and cloud programmes in hybrid IT environments, controlling and coordinating support for different solutions can significantly increase the complexity of IT operations," said Elaina Stergiades of IDC. "IT organisations are therefore looking for support providers that are able to simplify and unify access to support services." With the SAP ONE Support programme focusing on comprehensive support, SAP users can integrate cloud technologies and reduce the complexity of day-to-day operations. For more details on the SAP ONE Support support programme, see SAP of 3. Announce by 5 June at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando, Florida.
All backbone connections to SAP will be switched from January 1, 2020, as SAP has announced on its support page. Afterwards, communication between ABAP System and SAP will only take place via secure HTTPS connections, for which a dedicated user must also be requested in the Support Portal. In all ABAP systems, SAP hints can no longer be obtained via SNOTE via the old OSS RFC connection. The shipment of Early Watch Alerts to SAP is also affected by this change. Here the shipping route must also be changed to the new HTTPS standard. There is also a great need for action for all SAP customers without a current SAP Solution Manager. In the future, SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS08 (SPS07 only with additional information) will be required here. For all older releases, communication with SAP will also be impossible from January 2020. This primarily affects the data in the Maintenance Planner, which are then no longer synchronised. This then indirectly affects all future maintenance projects where the use of the Maintenance Planner is indispensable. Especially with regard to upcoming S/4 HANA migrations, this represents a risk to be avoided.
