SAP GRC 12 Support Package 02 Released

SAP GRC 12 is generally available with SPS 2 now

In Novbember 2019 SAP made GRC 12 with support pack stack (SPS) 02 generally available. The release followed a „early adopter care program“. Although the GRC foundation (GRCFND_A) is an individual code stream, many core functionalities remain stable – which is good news for stable development and continuous operation.

As with every release, cloud technologies functionalities is now available in GRC Access Control. Namely, the SAP cloud connector ties together on-premise and cloud risk analysis and user provisioning. Functional Enhancements and more information can be obtained here.

SAP GRC has five code streams now. V1000 (10.0), V1100 (10.1), V1200 (12), V8000 (10.1 for co-deployment), V8100 (12 for co-deployment). Together with the corresponding, Netweaver dependent plugin versions you might face some questions from your sap basis colleagues, which packages must be installed. But again, all components follow the same logic. The plugins for GRC 12 only work with NW release > 7.5. Otherwise, use the V1100 plugins.

Beside the well known advantages, you must keep in mind, that GRC12 requires NW 7.52. That in turn requires Oracle (c) 12 which might have some obstacles waiting for you. If you don’t use this particular Database, please contact your SAP basis and database admin colleagues nevertheless.

Also the good habits for the GRC product management and Support to maintain the knowledge base articles remain.

Though being quite technical, we hope that this blog post was useful for you.
