Such a turning point makes many companies uncertain and cautious. The switch to a new operating system, a new business software, and a new database is clearly not a matter of course. New SAP customers, too, will need to deal with Linux as an operating system for SAP solutions.

Any-DB support ends in 2025—then customers must transition to S/4HANA running on Linux only. Like thousands of other SAP customers, you’re currently weighing your options around the pending SAP-imposed deadline. You know a move to SAP HANA will improve your business operations, but the cost and complexity of the move to S/4 HANA introduces several significant risks to your organization.
