SAP Anywhere did not go far. In a prepared statement, a SAP representative said it evaluates its current solution portfolio from time to time and makes changes based on its overall cloud ERP strategy. "As such, we have decided to sunset the SAP Anywhere solution," said SAP. "We will be working closely with our customers to help them transition off the product and to find a new SAP solution that best fits their needs."
For the 25 to 27 inactive customers – who have not used the service for some time – SAP is giving them 30 days notice. "They haven't used it for quite some time," said the SAP spokesperson. "We are not talking a lot of customers here. For the ones that are active, we will work directly with them. Any partners that we are working with on this are already aware of this."
We welcome any SAP Anywhere customer to reach out to Clients First to discuss our replacement options such as Acumatica, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations or the New Dynamics Business Central. Business Central is Dynamics NAV on a SaaS model or on premise with a customer base of over 114, 000 customers and millions of users.
SAP Anywhere was supposed to be SAP's answer to ERP for the small and mid-sized market. Many doubted that SAP could pull off a solution for the smaller business. Business leaders should be cautious when researching a new ERP solution. Ask around and find out about the publisher's leadership and customer base and try not to be on the bleeding edge...
