Welcome at the SAP on IBM i update! This time I’d like to highlight a collaboration effort between IBM and SAP and point to sources for further reading.


IBM i 7.1 TR3

Last week, IBM announced availablility of Technology Refresh 3 for IBM i. In general,  TRs are IBM’s way to deliver enhancements without urging customers into a major release upgrade. This particular one was headed for by IBM and SAP efforts to optimize the SAP on IBM i experience.

Find the general overview message at IBM’s Technology Updates section at developerWorks.

In addition, an IBM techdoc flash sheds light on the specific implications for SAP on IBM i and on the efforts that were made in the labs of either side. Key topics cirlce around

  • PowerHA enhancements and integration with SAP
  • 7.20 SAP kernel enhancements and
  • database enhancements that address SAP upgrade donwtime.

Stay tuned…

As the development team intends to maintain a consistent format, editions of the series will continue to be published on my name. Set feeds accordingly if you are interested in following the series.
