SAP has updated its ERP suite SAP ERP 6.0 - formerly MySAP ERP 2005 - to include functionality that can be implemented on an as-needed basis, rather than requiring a single major upgrade. SAP said it plans to maintain its ERP 6.0 platform until 2010, providing upgrades and enhancements in chunks that customers can chose whether to implement.

SAP said that this allows customers to get new capabilities while meeting a key customer requirement to leave core ERP functionality stable.

"As a result, customers can isolate the impact of software updates and quickly bring new functionality online through shortened testing cycles without impeding core business processes," said a spokesman for the company.

SAP announced its new upgrade strategy for at the end of 2006, to allow customers a more economical and less disruptive way of adopting and managing software releases.
