Not long after their statement about RemoteWare end-of-engineering, SAP announced that they would be halting all activities related to their data movement software. It is now certain that RemoteWare end-of-life will be official in June 2018.
SAP explains that there will be no support or software and security updates for RemoteWare [as of June 2018]. With a year on the clock, we suggest you take some time to review the needs of your company and the projected growth of your organization.
The movement of operational data is critical for restaurant and retail businesses. It's imperative that you begin discussions about the next steps that your organization will take in implementing a new data movement solution.
RemoteLink to Replace RemoteWare
As a data delivery solution provider for over twenty years, we've put our trust in RemoteLink as a system that will provide new techniques and technology to serve this market better. Since the software's development accounted for current RemoteWare customers, it shares a familiar scripting language. This shared language makes it easier to integrate and make the switch from RemoteWare to RemoteLink.
