Support for SAP NetWeaver versions 7.1x, 7.3x and 7.4x ends at the end of 2020
Support for the SAP NetWeaver releases 7.1x, 7.3x, and 7.4 ends at the end of 2020. What's important now?
Our integration experts connect your systems with those of your customers and service providers so that your networking also reaches your business processes via the set and implemented integration processes. What about plug-and-play, you could ask and often will: SAP and non-SAP systems are developed in a modularized way and offer interfaces for communication with other systems that either receive data or send data.
Due to IT-architectural principles the systems are independent in defining their interfaces, so that a sending system usually does not provide the data in a format that the receiving system would need. In this case, we help to ensure that the formats are converted, that the data can be understood by the receiving system and that the underlying processing runs correctly when the data is received. In this way, your processes become cross-system and allow a smooth operation.
Support for the SAP NetWeaver releases 7.1x, 7.3x, and 7.4 ends at the end of 2020 (see SAP-Note 1648480).
However, SAP NetWeaver 7.5 has recently been extended to 2027, with an option for extended maintenance to 2030, as well as release 7.5 of SAP Process Integration and SAP Process Orchestration. For the optimal use of your integration middleware, the SAP Integration Directory Migration Tool supports your own migration from SAP PI 7.3, 7.4 to SAP PO 7.5.
SAP provides a migration tool that can move or convert the PI content to the new SAP PO. Elements that cannot be moved are the ccBPM processes (which are replaced by BPM in PO) and ABAP mappings, since you then no longer have an ABAP stack.
PI 7.4 is the last dual-stack PI version - support ends on December 31, 2020. From version 7.5, the ABAP and Java stacks must be split. This requires 2 systems with their own SIDs (however, these can share the same server and DB; the systems are maintained individually, such as patches). For NW 7.5, support ends according to the current status on December 31, 2024
Switching to the Java architecture means that you get a massive performance increase of about 30%. This increase is noticeable very quickly after the migration
Integration objects can be developed and maintained with a single development environment (IDE) (SAP NetWeaver Development / Eclipse)
With the new price list for PO all PI, BPM and BRM price list entries have been replaced. All previously sold licenses for PI (either volume-based or CPU-based) and BPM/BRM (CPU-based) have been moved to the old price list. The license for SAP Process Orchestration (PO) includes the use of the following components:
