#sapadmin:: Confused with Business Suite 7, SAP Business Suite 7 Innovations 2010, SAP Business Suite 7 Innovations 2011 and its SAP Netweaver Technology Platform?

Hi All,

Have you ever confused by the Latest SAP Technology Product Naming convention?


Lately, we can’t deny SAP NW technology evolves too rapid, and sometimes, or most of the times, we are confused with the underlying technology platform used, with a lot of question marks in our head to identify what’s the Netweaver Plaftform used in SAP Business Suite 7, SAP Business Suite 7 Innovations 2010 and SAP Business Suite 7 Innovations 2011, EHP5, EHP6, BW/EP/PI EHP 7.3,  and etc etc.


SAP Product running on SAP NetWeaver 7 EHP1, 2 and 3 is summarized in below table to provide better understanding and clearer picture:



For your information, EHP3 for SAP Netweaver 7 is running on AS ABAP 7.31.


SAP Netweaver 7.3 and EHP1 for SAP Netweaver 7.3 @ SAP Netweaver 7.31 are excluded from this blog to avoid confusion. As you might already knew, SAP Netweaver 7.3 is mainly focus on hub and standalone deployment such as EP, BW, PI and etc.



By understanding and able to distinguish underlying platform used between Business Suite 7,BS7i2010, BS7i2011 and SAP NetWeaver EHP* will definitely help sapadmin on their tasks such as installation, upgrade, maintenance, writing proposal and etc.



For hub   and standalone deployment such as EP, BW, PI and etc.

  • Good current clarification !
    I’ve always thought that SAP is loosing sales by frightening potential customers with this naming nightmare.
    The worse is is that it is not only very complicated but furthermore, that namings change continually. For exemple, you have to know all previous names of a product to be able to find and understand SAP notes.
    There is here a huge room for improvement from SAP.
    What about a New Year 2012 resolution for SAP ?
    • Hi Olivier,

      Totally agree with you. Not only customer, it also poses nightmare for SAP consultant who doesn’t follow SAP and SCN frequently. Apart from that, it also giving us hard time to clarify and figure out the underlying technology used for each different product.

      A lot of confusion with its technology and naming convention as SAP evolves too rapidly.
