With up to 10 annual releases for the SysAid Cloud edition and 3 annual releases for the SysAid On-Premise edition, it's our mission to offer a product that's both innovative and stable. Our R&D team is Agile and provides a rigorous development process to ensure the quality of every release. A significant portion of SysAid's new features emerge directly from our dedicated Feature Request Forum within the SysAid Community.
When new features are released, you are free to enable them at your convenience. SysAid will continue to function as usual with or without these. For information on enabling features from previous releases, please see our online Help.

To use SysAid Patch Management capabilities, you must upgrade your SysAid Server, RDS nodes, and SysAid agents to version 14.1. See the SysAid Upgrade Guide for more details.
Step 1: On-Premise Upgrade to SysAid 14.1
- SysAid version 7.5 or higher is needed in order to upgrade to SysAid 14.1. If you are running Derby database, you must first migrate your data to the embedded MS SQL Express database (read more...).
- To start using SysAid MDM capabilities, you must be running Tomcat 7 or above.
- The 64-bit Windows upgrade can only be used if your initial SysAid installation was 64-bit. If you are not sure, you can try installing the 64-bit upgrade, and you will be prompted if it is incorrect. In that case, simply install the 32-bit upgrade.
- SysAid Release 9.0 and higher for Linux/Unix/Mac requires SUN Java 1.7 or higher and Tomcat 7 to be installed on the SysAid Server.
- SysAid's new Patch Management capabilities require the latest version of SysAid Agents to be running and also the latest version of the RDS to be installed.
- The embedded MSSQL Express database (if used) requires Microsoft Installer 4.5. It is included with Windows Vista SP2 or above, or Windows Server 2008 SP2 or above. Anything below that requires manually upgrading to Microsoft Installer 4.5 or above.
