ACME is still running their SAP ERP solution using the R/3 version 4.6c, even though they are fully aware that it is not being supported by SAP anymore. They are under the impression that all this new functionality is not really required. But lately a shift in thinking takes place.
The head of the finance department was at a seminar. There he got in a discussion with accountants regarding the SAP new general ledger functionality. It offers much more flexibility in reporting as standard. Also this was better aligned with the latest international accounting legislation standards. In a nutshell, the latest SAP ERP solution allows easy multi-dimensional reporting. That is exactly what ACME needs as well.
Initially the upper management was not keen to invest in a new system.But that all changed when an independent survey proved that the cost for an upgrade is much cheaper than signed an extended maintenance agreement with SAP. Upon itself logical, as SAP wants to use their resources to build and support the latest technology instead.
