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.
