Best Practice Procedure and Verification

Procedure
General Tasks
EarlyWatch Alert
Frequency: Weekly
The free SAP EarlyWatch Alert service can be used to facilitate BW maintenance. It offers a uniqueapplication and basis perspective on the system. Utilize the SAP EarlyWatch alert as part of thesystem monitoring strategy. It is also a good information source and checklist which can be used inmeetings between the application and basis teams.
Support Package Strategy
Frequency: Quarterly
To keep the system up-to-date, SAP recommends implementing Support Packages and / or Patchesinto the system landscape on a regular basis. This should prevent already known and fixed bugsaffecting your business and you can make use of product improvements.To guarantee an optimal level of support from the SAP side, the system has to have an up-to-datestatus.Corrections for BW (front-end, server, Plug-in or Add-on) are only made available in the beforementioned Support Packages. With the exception of individual cases, no description of the correction(table entries, coding) is given in the notes. In general SAP does not carry out any corrections directlyin customer systems.Therefore, a periodical maintenance window has to be planned by the application team in cooperationwith the IT department to implement and test these Support Packages or Patches in the Customerspecific Business Scenario (at least each quarter of a year). It is recommended to apply SupportPackage Stacks, which are usually delivered quarterly (see http://service.sap.com/sp-stacks).Corrections are only brought out in notes, if problems are caused by applying SAP Support Packagesor Patches. In such cases as these, the matter is referred to in the SAPBWNEWS. SAPBWNEWS isbrought up-to-date with every BW Support Package stored as notes in SAP Service Marketplace.
