Are you a SAP NetWeaver system administrator? Or just interested in learning more about how you should manage updates to SAP NetWeaver? SAP NetWeaver Upgrades in a Nutshell is coming to openSAP this November, where you can learn how to easily manage upgrades to your system.
SAP NetWeaver is an open technology platform that allows your business to integrate both SAP and non-SAP applications. SAP NetWeaver offers a comprehensive set of technologies for running mission-critical business applications and integrating people, processes, and information. It also serves as the technical foundation of SAP’s Business Process Platform offerings by providing capabilities for service provisioning, composition (service consumption), and governance. Many systems such as SAP ERP, SAP NetWeaver Portal, SAP CRM and SAP SRM are based on SAP NetWeaver Application Server and use it as a runtime environment.
This course is designed to help you understand the technical background of SAP NetWeaver upgrades as well as the tools and general steps needed to perform an upgrade end to end. SAP NetWeaver Upgrades in a Nutshell will explain the purpose of upgrades, how to check for supported platforms, and how to locate guides in SAP Service Marketplace.

Maintenance Planner is a solution hosted by SAP and offers easy maintenance of systems in your landscape.
