SAP’s commitment to deliver more and accelerated innovation to SAP Business Suite helps its customers to become more productive, free up resources and run their businesses even better. As a logical consequence of its commitment to non-disruptive innovation, SAP is extending mainstream maintenance for the core SAP Business Suite 7 applications, including SAP ERP 6.0, by five years, from December 2015 through December 2020. This long-term predictability and planning security for the customers is unrivaled in the software industry and demonstrates SAP’s commitment to their success.
Customers that haven’t done the upgrade to SAP ERP 6.0 by now, are facing the end of extended maintenance as of March 31, 2013. In this context, SAP expects a large array of customers who are still running old SAP ERP releases below SAP ERP 6.0 (SAP R/3 4.6C, SAP R/3 Enterprise 4.7 and SAP ERP 2004) to follow SAP’s innovation roadmap by upgrading to SAP ERP 6.0.
In order to support these customers with their upgrade project, as well as to facilitate their upgrade project with specific SAP Enterprise Support services, SAP Active Global Support (AGS) and Maintenance Go-to-Market (M-GTM) are currently launching the Upgrade Now! campaign for direct SAP Enterprise Support customers in EMEA.
In this campaign SAP Enterprise Support customers will be invited to join a dedicated program, including a 360° review for upgrade, upgrade-related “meet the expert sessions” and a dedicated upgrade support advisory.
