What is SUM tool in SAP ?

SUM(Software Update Manager) is a multi-purpose tool, which supports various processes, such as performing a release upgrade, installing enhancement packages or applying Support Package stacks.
Traditionally for applying SPS we use SPAM for ABAP & JSPM for Java. 

Advantages of SUM Tool:

  • Two different tools are not required to apply SPS. One SUM tool is used.
  • No need to uncar the SAR files.
  • Minimum downtime (Single downtime for both ABAP & Java combined).
  • Simultaneously the SPS are applied to both the stacks.
