A question about SAP licensing

Hello:

I need a clarification about the SAP licensing. First, let me give you an introduction.

My company signed a license agreement in 1999 with SAP when buying SAP R/3 4.0B. Since then, and for cost reasons, there was not an agreement to migrate our licenses to the different schemas proposed by SAP along these years, i.e. mySAP or Business Suite. Currently, we are paying our annual maintenance since 1999.

We are in SAP 4.6C now and are we are forced to migrate to ECC6.0 because 4.6C will not be supported in 2011.

We are preparing the upgrade to ECC 6.0, but it seems that we should first "upgrade" our old licenses to Business Suite yes or yes, and pay for the difference; is that correct? So it means that our annual maintenace payment is not useful to upgrade SAP 4.6C to ECC 6.0 without cost?

Hope you can help me.

Thanks.

Hi,

>So it means that our annual maintenace payment is not useful to upgrade SAP 4.6C to ECC 6.0 without cost?

We had exactly the same case when upgrading from R/3 4.7 to ECC6. We had to re negotiate all the prices to go from a R/3 license to a Netweaver license.

I even think this is the real reason of the name change to ECC (5 or 6) instead of R/3 5.0 !

This is something you need to talk to your SAP Account Manager...
