Upgrade SAP Information Steward 4.2 from SP05 to SP06 or SP07.

Hi Team,

We are currently using SAP Information Steward 4.2 SP05. As part of regular upgrade to keep systems in sync, we are planning to upgrade to SP06. But I did not see much beneficial to update with SP06. I understand SP07 is going to release in May 2016. But I did not get any information related to the features and release notes.

Could someone advise is it good to upgrade SP06 now or is it worth to wait till SP07 releases?

Thanks

Venky

    If there's no specific issue or new feature for which an upgrade is needful, you better wait for SP7.

    Venky,

    I was advised by SAP that the MITI integrators were updated in SP6 but not in the release notes so if you want to collect metadata from MITI sources then I wouldn't wait. Otherwise, have a look at the fixes through SP5 patches and in SP6 release notes to see whether you have any burning issues that are now resolved.

    For instance, we have an issue with the DS Central Repository that was fixed in SP5 patch 2. So we are going to a patch version first before determining which SP to upgrade to.

    regards

    Adrian

      Hi Adrian/Dirk, That make sense to me. So far we did not find any issue with sp06 verison. So certainly we could wait for SP07. But do we have any anticipated date for sp07 release?
