Are you aware of the SAP requirement regarding end of mainstream maintenance for Netweaver 7.4? If not, you still have time to get prepared as the deadline is effective December 31, 2020 but we encourage all SAP customers to complete their upgrade project now or least begin the planning phase to allow for enough time to successfully complete the upgrade.
So what do I need to do?
SAP provides the following maintenance options:
- Upgrade – SAP recommends to upgrade before you reach the end of mainstream maintenance to ensure the delivery of the new releases and the upgrade tools are covered by SAP support.
- Extended Maintenance – is an optional offering with additional fees and support agreements required
- Customer-Specific Maintenance – the customer continues to pay support fee with some restrictions applied
For more information please refer to the SAP note: https://support.sap.com/en/release-upgrade-maintenance/maintenance-information/maintenance-strategy/maintenance-phases.html
If have not begun to plan your upgrade project its not too late, but this required action should be taken soon to allow for enough time for the project to be completed by the end of the year deadline.
The Managecore team is here to help customers complete their upgrade project and provide any additional guidance your systems may require.
