SAP Commerce Cloud: End of Mainstream Maintenance (EoMM)
This notification is to share important news about the latest End of Mainstream Maintenance (EoMM) policies and to ensure you will have the best experience out of your solution. As indicated in the SAP Commerce Cloud Supplemental Terms and Conditions, Section 4.2, you must only use a version or release of the Cloud Service for which software maintenance and support are current.
When a release enters EoMM status, SAP stops maintaining and releasing patches (delivering corrections, updates, and security patches). You, as a customer, are responsible for the resulting consequences including performance, availability, functionality, and/or security issues experienced with the Cloud Service that are caused by your use of a non-supported version of the Cloud Service.
As of the dates specified in the table below, to help protect customers from the above-mentioned risks, applications using an End of Mainstream Maintenance (EoMM) version will be prohibited from building and deploying new code of Commerce Cloud software.
For clarity, SAP will not suspend use of the Commerce Cloud software, but restrictions will remain until the Commerce Cloud software version is upgraded to a current version under mainstream maintenance.
|Commerce Cloud Software Version||Date when last deployment will be allowed|
|1905||31 March 2023|
|2005||31 March 2023|
|2011||31 March 2023|
|2105||31 August 2023|
|2205||31 May 2024|
SAP continuously releases new versions of SAP Commerce Cloud to deliver innovation, increase security, and provide a reliable, constantly evolving platform with enhanced features and capabilities. In May, SAP released Commerce Cloud 2205. Following are some innovation highlights:
- Intelligent Selling Services for SAP Commerce Cloud
Deliver personalized smart recommendations to customers throughout the storefront experience, including complementary products and suggestions based on the behavior of other shoppers. Boost preferred product recommendations according to business metrics such as revenue and units sold. Maximize conversions with enhanced A/B testing for product trends and related, recommended, and recently viewed products.
- Headless Commerce and B2B PunchOut
Cover more headless commerce scenarios with out-of-the-box use cases, new public storefront APIs, and sample stores for Spartacus. Achieve clean, decoupled integrations for B2B scenarios with updated integration hooks, event logic, and cXML APIs that enable punchout from procurement tools into SAP Commerce. The deprecation of some Accelerator UI and OCC template extensions in favor of decoupled solutions allows SAP Commerce to advance our mission to provide a modern, headless commerce experience with easier upgrades of back-end functionality.
