If you are one of the thousands of SAP customers who are still happily running SAP CRM on premise, you’re probably already aware that SAP continues to actively invest in, and enhance, SAP CRM!
SAP has not announced any end-of-life date for SAP CRM on-prem, which, as part of the SAP Business Suite, is currently guaranteed to be supported via mainstream maintenance through at least 2025. Currently there are no plans to end or replace SAP CRM.
While SAP also develops other Cloud-based solutions in parallel, as part of the SAP C/4HANA, SAP also continues to invest in our legacy on-premise solutions such as SAP CRM.
In fact, SAP recently just wrapped up the CRM2018 round of the SAP Customer Connection program in which SAP delivered dozens of new customer-requested enhancement to SAP CRM on-premise including
- “Fiori-style” Belize theme available for SAP CRM
- Ability to easily switch between CRM business roles
- Prominently display open items (in bold) in Interaction Center
- Split screen to edit two seperate CRM objects in parallel
- “Save and Go Back” option for all CRM business transactions
- Mass change of employee responsible in Activity Search
- And much, much more…

This year the scope of the CRM2019 customer connection program will be expanded to also include SAP Contact Center (formerly SAP BCM), SAP’s optional omni-channel communications management software that enables CTI capabilities in SAP CRM Interaction Center.
