      Hi Bettina/Joerg,

      SAP KBA 3015497 for SAP S/4HANA FOUNDATION 2021 is still being created.

      Awaiting your reply, thank you in advance and best regards, Jose Zabala.

      Hi Jose,

      This is rather a question for the S/4HANA community, sorry I can't comment here.

      We plan to have an S/4HANA 2021 version in SAP CAL right after the release date.

      best, Bettina

      Hi Bettina

       

      I'm looking for a 2021 Fully Activated Appliance release date?

      I have a Project kicking off in December, so wanting to know if we'll be able to use 2021, or if we must commit to using a 2020 appliance?

       

      Regards

      Grant

      HI Grant,

      it's planned for December (but rather towards the 15th-20th), hope this fits to your project.timeline.

      Or as workaround if this is possible: start with a 2020 FPS02 instance for some fitting areas (ie. where there's no new scope in 2021) and switch to 2021 later ?

      Best, Joerg

      Hi Joerg

      Thanks for the update.

      Can you walk me through the Switching process? How would we do that practically?

      Do we Initiate a CAL in December on S/4HANA 2020, and then let that run out (30 days), and then initiate another in January when S/4 2021 is available?
      We will also apply the Customer's S/4HANA License to extend the 30day period. So i'd like to know how we would manage all of this?

       

      Regards

      Grant

      Hi Grant,

      yes, as you describe it above could be an option.

      You can also run the two instances (2020 and 2021) in parallel eg. to compare features or copy over customer-specific settings.

      For the first 30 days of each instance, no SAP license is required (just the hyperscaler hosting fees). The 30 days start when you accept the T&C in CAL.

      If one of the instances should run longer than 30 days (it sounds a bit like this for the 2020 instance in your case), the "owner" of the instance in CAL will need

      a) The S/4HANA product license

      b) The CAL subscription (at least the lowest tier for one active instance at a time).

      In your case, it might be easiest if your customer owns the instance under his S/4 license but I can't judge the details.

      This blog explains the details how to extend a 30-day trial in CAL.

      Best, Joerg
