As a Silver SAP Partner, Avantra helps customers understand the SAP Maintenance Planner with the release of their recent guide.
Hosted by SAP, Maintenance Planner is a cloud-based tool that enables users to map out their systems in the SAP landscape.
SAP has launched the Maintenance Planner as the successor of the Landscape Planner, Product System Editor, and Maintenance Optimizer. It is already available for SAP Solution Manager 7.1 onwards and mandatory for Solution Manager 7.2 and for planning SAP S/4HANA landscapes and SAP NetWeaver 7.5+ based software.
According to Avantra, Maintenance Planner streamlines the maintenance process by consolidating business-critical activities such as upgrading/installing software, downloading archives, defining product maintenance dependencies, deploying changes by creating stack configuration, and so forth–all on a single platform.
With this tool in action, SAP-centric enterprises can significantly minimize downtimes by scheduling the deployment of all upcoming tasks at a suitable time. The end-to-end activity planning becomes an effortless task, and enables enterprises to dodge authorization blunders or system data errors efficiently.
Avantra adds that, as an end-to-end tool for software maintenance, SAP Maintenance Planner allows enterprises to use integrated processes for SAP S/4HANA and Fiori apps. By supporting hybrid use cases such as product analytics and hybrid landscape visualization, it can strengthen capabilities for on-prem systems.
According to Avantra, providing in-depth reports on possible side-effects that could impact an enterprise’s IT landscape is a leading reason behind Maintenance Planner’s growing popularity. Leveraging these reports, users can evaluate system updates and extension risks without depending on external tools.
Additionally, with the Execute Plan functionality, enterprises can choose and execute system installations from within the Maintenance Planner–no need to exit the Solution Manager.
While Maintenance Planner System Exploration allows users to efficiently evaluate their IT landscape via custom visualizations, with Transaction Exploration, they can get a quick overview of all the transactions created in the system.
