Leading up to the enforcement of GDPR, there were many rumors in the SAP market of companies hastily upgrading their SAP Hybris systems. Our dedicated SAP Hybris recruitment team conducted a short survey of our network to shed some light on SAP Hybris upgrades and found the following insights.
Over 71% of our network were found to be currently involved in or planning upgrades within SAP Hybris. 29% had no upgrades planned, primarily due to running a version of SAP Hybris at 6.3 or higher. Of those who were upgrading, 50% were upgrading to 6.6, 37% to 6.7 and 13% to 6.3. The most commonly cited reasons for upgrading were:
- GDPR compliance
- New and improved features of the upgrade
- Better performance of new releases
- Support concerns for older versions
