The “deadline for conversion” has always been driven by the date of which SAP will end Maintenance for SAP ERP customers.
In February 2020, SAP announced an extension of mainstream maintenance for ERP 6.0 customers on EHP 6, 7 and 8.
Maintenance for these customers has been extended up until the end of 2027, with further extended maintenance options through to 2030. All SAP customers who run previous versions of SAP will no longer be supported by the end of 2025.
We advise you to start building your business case for S/4HANA as industry is gearing up for this shift. Absoft is well versed in S/4HANA migrations and our teams have the skills, knowledge and track record. Speak to our S/4HANA migration experts to review your options and journey.
