Are you referring to SAP's announcement that they are changing from Standard Support to Enterprise Support? I understand that eventually customers will need a Customer Center of Expertise, but that is not initially required.

I believe that customers eventually need to isntall SAP Solution Manager Enterprise Edition, which is an add-on that can be applied to Solution Manager 7.0 SP 15. By the time SAP releases SP 18, everyone will have the Enterprise Edition of Solution Manager.

I believe that you also need to have a connection between your Solution Manager and SAP set up so that you can open up customer messages from your Solution Manager system.

The biggest problem I am having is determining the minimum requirements needed by January 1, 2009.
