    Hello Yuksel ,

    The upgrade is possible for SAP systems based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SR3 (SAP_BASIS 7.0 SP14) and higher.

    You can find information about this question in FAQ for Windows and SQL Server :

    Best regards,

    Hi Yuksel,

    I would check whether target Windows version supports my current SAP platform or not (Your system is running on 7.0 so I doubt whether it is supported on 2016 versions without an upgrade).

    And also from OS point of view there would be many changes between 2008 and 2016 versions which are not specific to SAP.

    from DB point of view - Your source and target are same so no changes....If you compare 2008 and 2016 versions there are lot many changes and features available...Ex: 2008 doesn't have "AlwaysON" feature but next versions have this etc..
