Vistex solution extensions for SAP S/4HANA Release 1709 have been fully optimized for the SAP HANA database that powers SAP S/4HANA ERP. The Vistex solution extensions have redesigned engines that can achieve peak processing performance with SAP HANA as well as updated communication methods with SAP S/4HANA to ensure information can be shared accurately and instantly.
This revolutionary in-memory database not only provides extremely fast data processing, but it also delivers machine learning and predictive analytics capabilities to see your company’s possible future and create a plan to get there. It has never been easier or simpler to decide what go-to-market programs would be beneficial and how to implement them.
Not only is the software smarter and faster, but you can be too! A broader SAP Fiori® user experience is available with this release, covering much of a user’s interaction with the Vistex solution extensions.
Future Vistex releases are planned to align with SAP software releases to minimize disruption and maximize customer investment. SAP and Vistex—partners in progress, now and for the future.
- Version 1610 for S/4 1610 has been released and is now available for customers to deploy in their S/4 landscape.
- Version 1709 is expected in early Q1 2018 with continuous improvements to take advantage of the underlying HANA platform.
- Vistex will synchronize its releases for S/4 with SAP releases to ensure maximum compatibility and minimum disruption for its customers.
- Customers will upgrade both S/4HANA and Vistex to the same versions at the same time.
- SAP and Vistex product teams are jointly mapping our S/4HANA roadmap and architecture for future versions.
- ECC-based Vistex releases are compatible with the SAP HANA database. Customers may migrate their ERP/Vistex database to SAP HANA earlier to save time and effort during the ERP migration later, by completing some of the prerequisites.
- Vistex customers may migrate from Vistex 6.0E Support Pack 4 to Vistex Solutions for SAP for S/4HANA 1610 simultaneously with a migration of SAP Business Suite (ECC) 6.0 to SAP S/4HANA 1610.
- Customers may upgrade their Vistex software to the latest release to be ready for the S/4 migration (currently 6.0E Support Pack 4 for Solutions for SAP for S/4HANA 1610; expected to be 6.0E Support Pack 5 for Solutions for SAP for S/4HANA 1709).
