Please be aware that as of October 2016, the latest Support Pack for SAP Solution Manager is SPS 15. That means SPS 12 and lower will no longer be accepted for future Partner Center of Expertise (PCOE) applications.
To ease the transition, partners can still apply for PCOE audit with SPS 12 until February 28, 2017. From March 1st, 2017 only SPS 13 and higher will be accepted.
To avoid last minute changes and pressure on our partners, as well as keep up-to-date with SAP latest innovations, it is always recommend to run the latest SPS on your SAP Solution Manager. Find the schedules for maintenance deliveries (Support Packages and SP Stacks) here: Schedules for maintenance deliveries (Support Packages and Support Package Stacks) | SAP Support Portal
Please also note that as of January 1, 2018, only SAP Solution Manager 7.2 will be accepted for PCOE audits. Refer to following article for details: SAP Solution Manager 7.2 for VAR-D Support
