SAP currently supports Releases 7.0 and 9.0. SAP is currently in the final phases of development of Release 10 and is just beginning the planning cycle for our next innovation release. Additionally, SAP intends to continue providing customer-driven innovation to its On-Premise customers on a regular cadence of every 18-24 months.
Currently, the end of maintenance for SAP Sourcing Release 7.0 is December 31, 2017 and the end of maintenance for SAP Sourcing Release 9.0 is December 31, 2015 2016. We acknowledge that this is an unusual situation and may be confusing, but given that SAP will continue to innovate the SAP Sourcing application, SAP recommends that customers upgrade to the most recent version of SAP Sourcing regularly.
UPDATED EOM FOR RELEASE 9.0 IS DECEMBER 31ST 2016.
SAP Sourcing Release 10 will be entering ramp-up early Q2 2014 and SAP anticipates it will be generally available at the end of 2014 with an anticipated end of
maintenance of December 31, 2018 2019. Customers that are considering an upgrade to Release 9.0 in the near future may want to consider participating in Release 10.0 ramp-up and go-live on Release 10.0 in 2014.
