SAP ECC 5.0 to SAP ECC 6.0 – 3 Excellent Reasons to Upgrade Now

Are you still on SAP ECC 5.0? Why keep paying for extremely expensive customer specific maintenance? In the past year or so, we are seeing a growing number of customers approach us, looking for a cost-effective way to get out of the expensive and risky situation that they are in.

The Cost of Being Stuck on SAP ECC 5.0

SAP ECC 5.0 was released in June 2004 to SAP customers and in 2005 for general availability. Mainstream maintenance ended on March 31, 2010 and extended maintenance ended on March 31, 2013. That was over two years ago.

 

You are stuck without support or with an expensive customer specific support which costs you an arm and a leg – while it provides you close to nothing (no legal fixes, etc.). You pay per incident.

The Risk of Being Stuck on SAP ECC 5.0

SAP ERP is complex as it is. Staying on a version that is past its lifecycle is like tripling the risk. Even a well maintained SAP can run into issues. Why allow your SAP to walk on a tightrope? The risk averse will upgrade to SAP ECC 6.0 and the “dice rollers” will stay on SAP ECC 5.0, with the knowledge that a critical failure could turn into an avalanche.

SAP ECC 5.0 is Crippling You

You can’t be agile on a system that is past its prime. You can’t add new functionalities on SAP ECC 5.0 and expect any help from SAP when things go wrong. Staying on ECC 5.0 is a guaranteed trip to nowhere.

 

You are stuck without support or with an expensive customer specific support which costs you an arm and a leg – while it provides you close to nothing (no legal fixes, etc.). You pay per incident.
