SAP has boosted its incentives for North American customers considering switching over from PeopleSoft or J.D. Edwards. As part of the Safe Passage program, customers will receive a 75 percent trade in credit for any existing software replaced by SAP. During the migration phase, customers can also receive support for both the SAP product and the software it is replacing for an additional fee.
This is an expansion from the original Safe Passage plan, launched just after Oracle’s PeopleSoft acquisition. Originally the plan was solely for existing SAP customers who also used either PeopleSoft or J.D. Edwards products.
