SAP announced that the validity of SAP S/4HANA compatibility packs has been extended to the end of 2025. Compatibility packages have been created to allow customers an early move to SAP S/4HANA as innovation platform, by providing them an interim access to some classical SAP Business Suite functionality.
SAP has set the period initially to end of 2020, providing a 5 year period at the time of the S/4HANA launch in 2015. Feedback from customers and user groups shows us that this period may not be sufficient for some more complex and highly integrated areas (like e.g. warehouse management or HCM).
This is why SAP decided to extend this interim solution of the compatibility packs until end of 2025, providing customers for these solutions the same horizon as we provide for the classical SAP Business Suite. We are convinced that with this decision we are offering customers another supporting element to move to SAP S/4HANA soon and consume its great business value and innovation.
