Compatibility Packs: a Call to Action for SAP S/4HANA Customers
Are you live on SAP S/4HANA private cloud or on-premise – or planning to go live soon?
Or are you using classic standard functionality like LE-WM Basic Warehousing or FI-TV Travel and Expense in SAP S/4HANA?
Then you probably are aware of the compatibility packs in SAP S/4HANA. They are temporary use rights which were defined at the outset of S/4HANA in 2015, and will expire at the end of 2025.
This date is a real hard stop, because continued usage of these functionalities constitutes a breach of contract. While SAP will not technically disable compatibility pack functionalities immediately in 2026, there is obviously no more support for them, and SAP does not guarantee their flawless functioning after expiration.
Bad news: December 2025 is not far away.
Good news #1: customers of SAP S/4HANA public cloud are not concerned.
Good news #2: with the upcoming release 2023 in October, SAP provides go-to solutions in S/4HANA or in cloud-based applications.
Good news #3: the Readiness Check and more tools are helping you to find out if you are concerned.
