Introducing Avantra 20.2 - What's new?

by Brenton O'Callaghan

Published on 02.18.2020

As part of our relaunch as Avantra, we're excited to release the next version of our software, Avantra 20.2. Our vision at Avantra is to be the industry leader in data-driven, fully automated operations for businesses running SAP and 20.2 is the next step on this journey.

The new release features some obvious changes, a new name, a new brand, and a new versioning scheme combined with some new foundational elements designed to power the future of SAP Operations. With all this change though, you'll be glad to hear that under the hood there is still the rock-solid code base of Syslink Xandria.

In this post I'm going to briefly look at some of the new features we're bringing to market in this release and believe me, we're just getting started. We're also proud to announce that there will also be a dedicated version of Avantra for Amazon Web Services (AWS) available in the AWS Marketplace.
