SAP Commerce– End of Mainstream Maintenance (EoMM) is Coming Soon. What Does it Mean, and How Can You Get Ready with Spadoom?

The digital commerce landscape is evolving, and SAP Commerce is at the forefront of this transformation. The SAP Commerce on-premise platform is reaching the End of Mainstream Maintenance (EoMM) on July 31, 2026. 


This significant milestone means a shift in focus toward SAP Commerce Cloud, which includes simplified DevOps, self-service enablement, and seamless integration with more than 100 systems. The cloud version promises continuous innovation, efficiency, and an enhanced customer experience.


What’s EoMM, and What Does it Mean for You?


End of Mainstream Maintenance (EoMM) refers to the end of the period when a software product or component receives regular updates, patches, and support from the vendor. After EoMM, the software may still be usable, but it may not receive any new features, enhancements, proper support, bug fixes, or security updates.


In the case of SAP Commerce, the End of Mainstream Maintenance means that the SAP Commerce on-premise version 2205 will no longer receive updates or new features. It will provide only customer-specific maintenance after the EoMM, which will occur on July 31, 2026. Continuing with an unsupported version can lead to security risks, compatibility issues, low or no technical support, and outdated technology. 


As per the official notification for SAP, the key limitations of continuing with the on-premise version would include:


  • No delivery of new support packages i.e. patch releases


  • No delivery of legal changes


  • No updates to third-party libraries


  • No updates to support changes in third-party dependencies


  • No updates to support newer versions of the Java virtual machine


  • No technological updates and no interface support updates


  • Customer-specific problem resolution for only known problems only


  • Possible fee to resolve new problems


  • No service-level agreements as part of SAP Enterprise Support


  • No remote support to evaluate the latest enhancement packages


On the other hand, SAP will continue to innovate and expand its capabilities in the cloud, and adopting cloud technology will keep you current and competitive in the modern market. SAP Commerce Cloud already offers agility, scalability, and a host of advanced features like personalization and real-time analytics that cater to modern customer expectations.


Benefits of SAP Commerce Cloud


Moreover, new features can be expected as SAP shifts all its focus to the Cloud version. In fact, SAP has stated that the Cloud version will be updated continuously to maximize advantages like:


  • Better efficiency, simplicity, and cost savings with faster release cycles and less risk.


  • A focus on advanced technologies like AI/ML-powered personalization, micro-service extensibility, deeper integrations with S/4, and more!


  • Enhanced composability that allows you to leverage SAP’s commerce core while customizing your experiences with their ecosystem of partners.


  • Optimized merchandising, intelligent product recommendations, and promotion of higher-margin products.


  • Quick and cost-effective experimentation with new business models/channels.


  • Enhanced channel-based product segmenting and optimum delivery time and costs through strategic sourcing.


  • A more engaging, scalable, and secure experience with regular updates in line with cutting-edge technologies.
