Sage 200 – End of Support Reminder

GCC would like to remind all Sage 200 customers that Sage has a software lifecycle policy for Sage 200 meaning every year an older version of Sage 200 is moved into end of support. Full details of the ‘Sage Lifecycle Policy’ can be viewed here.

A summary of the Sage Lifecycle Policy:

  • The Sage 200 product lifecycle is the current version minus 2 previous versions.
    i.e. The current version of Sage 200 is version 2022. Therefore versions 2020 and below will be moving into, or already be in ‘End of Support’.

Why do Sage do this?

It is not sustainable to keep products in support for the duration that has been experienced in the past. The industry has changed! Sage is unable to invest and develop the current product whilst supporting older software versions using outdated technology.

What does Sage 200 End of Support mean?

End of Support does not mean the software will stop working. The software can still be used, BUT Sage will withdraw support, updates, patches and legislative updates.

Note: There are limitations & risks if you stay on a version that is in End of Support.

What are your next steps

  • Why do I need to upgrade

    Not keeping your Sage system within the mainstream support cycle presents various challenges, limitations, and risks.

    The main ones are:

    • Major risk – If an issue arises that needs a patch from Sage to resolve – once the system is end of support Sage will not issue patches or updates.
    • Major risk – GCC are unable to call upon Sage 3rd line support for issues if any arise for your system.
    • You are unable to keep up with legislative changes.
    • You are unable to keep up with technology changes (i.e., server operating systems, Microsoft Office).
    • You are unable to add user licences and module licences

    See GCC’s ‘Sage 200 Support Lifecycle’ page to understand the full limitations.

  • What do I need to do to upgrade

    Upgrading your system ensures continued operation, keeping you within mainstream support and compliant.

    An upgrade will usually involve GCC completing the following:

    • Scoping & documenting the upgrade requirements – Statement of Work (SoW)
    • Compliance check with all data handling and GDPR policies
    • Installing a new instance of your Sage system and the Microsoft SQL database on a Virtual Machine (VM) or physical server (provided by others)
    • Testing the new platform & testing a data migration
    • Migrating your live financial data from your existing system
    • Testing the new system prior to ‘go-live’
    • Launching the new system
    • Training all users on new features
    • Post go-live enhanced support (GCC service desk and project consultants)

  • Change to an alternative solution

    As there are costs associated and time required with an upgrade (that keep getting more frequent) – Many users ask what alternatives are there?

    The main alternative is a cloud-based, centrally managed, Software as a Service (SaaS) system.

    This type of system will typically have several minor upgrades each year with the changes often being rolled out into the live environment without the end user noticing. New features and benefits are usually published periodically, maybe twice a year.

    Because the core is centrally managed – additional, non-standard, functionality is typically added via Apps (extensions) that are written and extensively tested prior to launch.

    Key benefits of a centrally managed and hosted in the cloud software (SaaS):

    • Users can work from anywhere – office/home/holiday home
    • Users can use any device that has a browser
    • Automatic, continuous, background upgrades
