SAPinsider Talking Points: How End of Maintenance is Fueling the Second Big Wave of SAP S/4HANA Adoption
Meet the Authors
⇨ SAPinsider’s recent SAP S/4HANA Finance and Central Finance State of the Market Report found that the 2027 maintenance deadline is now a major driver of finance priorities for companies.
⇨ To address the end of maintenance, organizations should re-think their original business case decisions and re-assess the S/4HANA deployment option that best fits their needs.
⇨ You can visit SAPinsider's booth at SAP SAPPHIRE to have a more in-depth discussion about these findings.
SAP CEO Christian Klein recently announced the 2027 end of maintenance schedule for SAP ECC will not be extended, giving organizations a firm deadline on when they should move on to SAP S/4HANA. Companies have taken notice, as end of maintenance is among the top drivers of strategic priorities, according to SAPinsider’s SAP S/4HANA Finance and Central Finance State of the Market Report.
We have compiled some key talking points that organizations must discuss internally and with their partners about how to manage this rapidly approaching deadline. Considering the now-added compelling event of possible non-compliance, organizations must quickly determine how they can make a business case for the move under these changed circumstances, decide their best option for SAP S/4HANA deployment from the various deployment options, and figure out how to balance the migration with other finance priorities and overall budget limitations, still the key barriers for S/4HANA adoption.
