Following the maintenance plans for SAP SRM, SAP MDM Catalog Management (aka SRM-MDM Catalog) has also adopted an extended maintenance period for the next years. This new maintenance strategy enables our customers to safely transition from SAP Business Suite 7 to SAP S/4HANA and other SAP Cloud solutions.

First, all SRM-MDM Catalog releases are supported until 31 of December 2020.

After this date, only the new version of SRM-MDM Catalog 7.02 on NW 7.50 based on MDM 7.1 SP21 will be supported. Its maintenance period lasts until 31 December 2027.

Important: SAP MDM Catalog Management releases are delivered with SAP SRM application as follows:

- SAP MDM Catalog Management 3.0 is delivered with SAP SRM 7.0
- SAP MDM Catalog Management 7.01 is delivered with EHP1 for SAP SRM
- SAP MDM Catalog Management 7.02 is delivered with EHP2, EHP3 and EHP4 for SAP SRM

Considering this, after 31 of December 2020 if you want to continue using SAP MDM Catalog Management, you may need to upgrade SAP SRM to higher EHP that is compatible with SAP MDM Catalog Management 7.02 on NW 7.50.
