SAP customers on active maintenance will only be entitled to EBFs and tech support from SAP, and will not receive a free upgrade to Appeon PowerBuilder 2017 or newer versions.
Unfortunately, no. Development of the new versions of PowerBuilder and InfoMaker are not financed by SAP. However, our new subscription pricing is on par with what customers have been paying historically as maintenance fees. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support to make PowerBuilder the fastest and best way to build business apps!
