Hello we have vSphere 5.5 currently and looking to upgrade in April next year to 6.0. We are also about to implement vRealize 7 in our environment. Will there be any upgrades needed to vRealize 7 when start upgrading to vSphere 6. I am trying to ascertain if we should hold off on implementing vRealize till after upgrade.

Thank you for your help.

Which component of the vRealize suite, because there are 17 of them ?

VMware vRealize Operations Manager aka VMware vCenter Operations Manager ?

VMware vRealize Operations Manager 6.4 is compatible with vCenter Server  6.5 and 6.0 U1, U2.

VMware vRealize Operations Manager 6.4 is compatible with ESXi  6.5 and 6.0 U1, U2.

VMware vRealize Automation 7.0 is  compatible with vCenter Server  6.5 and 6.0 U1, U2.

VMware vRealize Automation 7.0 is  compatible  is compatible with ESXi  6.5 and 6.0 U1, U2.

So you should have no issues, you can check here

Thank you Andrew for the quick response.
This will be for vRealize Automation/vRealize Orchestrator and vRealize Business, all these are about to be implmented and not sure how the vSphere upgrade to 6.0 will impact them.

If you are on v7, at present, there should be no issues, with the newer versions of vSphere.

as you current versions of  vRealize Automation, vRealize Orchestrator, vRealize Business are all compatible with ESXi 5.5 U1 and later, including 6.0, U1 and U2.

So inplace upgrades of vCenter Server to 6.0 and ESXi 5.5 to 6.0, will not affect them.
