Information technology (IT) departments running R/3 have some hard thinking to do following SAP AG's decision to stop selling its pioneering enterprise resource planning (ERP) package. SAP has given users a clear migration strategy to mySAP and is offering discounts of up to 75% for those prepared to make the jump in the immediate future. Despite such assurances, businesses that have battled to install their ERP package will be concerned they will have to move to the Web services architecture of mySAP. A migration to mySAP means businesses will assess whether they should rework their existing enterprise application integration strategies to support the Netweaver middleware bundled with mySAP ERP or use existing middleware.
