      Thank you for sharing. I don't get it though, sorry.

      "To ensure that an SAP application is up-to-date and functional" - this is usually done by applying support packs/stacks, not by applying individual notes. Historically, the reason to go to SNOTE would be to apply a correction for a very specific issue (more likely) or to bring in specific functionality in advance of an upgrade (less likely).

      That aside, I don't understand what does this Analyzer analyze actually... The screenshots don't look much different than Note Display in SNOTE looked before. What is the "scope" is in this context and how is it helpful?

      I've also read the text in the note 3200109 (which will not be available to the readers without SID) but still don't understand the "value proposition". It just makes generic statements like "Note Analyzer helps you analyze" (wow, I'd never thought of that! 🙂 ) and such.

      Sorry, I'm completely lost here... If there could be a specific example of how this would be used in reality, with some context, I think it would be helpful.

      Thank you.

      Thank you, Jelena, for your feedback.

      As mentioned in the blog post, the application team now can bundle together multiple SAP Notes in a xml file and release it as one single SAP Note attaching xml file.

      Once the xml file is uploaded, the Note Analyzer tool can analyze the version, implementation status, availability of newer version of SAP Notes etc. and gives an overview of the collection of SAP Notes. With this analysis the user can take necessary action on those of SAP Notes.

      The usual SAP Note implementation process remain same; however, the user gets a chance to process the SAP Notes in a more systematic way.

      You can also check SAP Note 3338196 for more details.
