Good news from Walldorf! SAP has announced that it is extending the Compatibility Pack usage rights for the Customer Service (CS), Transportation (SAP LE/LES) and Production Planning (PP/MPR) components of SAP Business Suite. Namely from 2025 to 2030.

The Compatibility Packs are designed to ease the transition from SAP ERP / Business Suite to S/4HANA for customers and represents an S/4HANA-compatible copy of the “classic” software product.

By granting the rights to use the above solution functionalities, SAP gives all users more time to innovate their business processes.

Customers of the itmX crm suite also benefit from this decision: The established and standardized processes in the SAP CS module can thus be used for longer. If a changeover to S/4HANA is pending, this component can thus be considered secondary for the time being and the changeover of the service processes can take place downstream.
