  • Hi Santosh,

    in your message about Mobile Service R/3 Edition, you are saying :
    “The latest available release for Mobile Service R/3 Edition is 4.0. There is no 5.0 release for Mobile Service R/3 Edition.”

    What should we understand ?
    – Is 4.0 the last version for Mobile Service R/3 Edition ?
    – 5.0 is not delivered yet but will be delivered in few month ?
    – What is the development strategy for this solution ?
    – If a customer implement the solution in 4.0 version and if it is not maintained anymore in the next versions, what will happen when upgrading into an upper version ?

    Thank you in advance for your answer.
    Best regards,

    • Mobile Service R/3 edition has been put into maintenance mode. There will be no more releases of this product.
