Future Release & Maintenance Strategy

Many customers have asked for a clear and predictable SAP HANA Release and Maintenance Strategy. Therefore, starting with SAP HANA 2.0 SPS 08, which is currently planned for Q4/2024, we are targeting to deliver new SAP HANA 2.0 versions every 2 years and always in Q4 of the calendar year. In addition, each SAP HANA 2.0 version will provide a 4-year maintenance period. This means that customers will always have a 2-year overlap between two consecutive versions, offering sufficient time to plan and upgrade to the most recent version.
