Advice SAP BW


     I Have to Install SAP BW for  a new client. And I want to know what is the most stable version of SAP BW on a Relational database (oracle,MssQL,..)

Because I noticed that the latest versions of SAP BW are adapted to HANA.

Your help would be very greatful.

Best Regards,




My statement is that SAP is very careful when it comes to software logistics. Of course, BW release 7.4 is newer than 7.3 but released to customers a while ago. It's not anymore on SP02 but SP09 as you mentioned. Therefore I would expect that now it can be considered as a stable release.

An advantage of release 7.4 is indeed that it's more HANA compliant, i.e. there are major enhancements for HANA implemented in this release. From that perspective it could be a more future proof choice if the client considers to move to HANA in the next years to come. Actually, this would be my preference / advice.

Best regards,
