Although the Sage official supported platform matrix dated 2-11-09 continues to say that MAS 90 and MAS 200 v3.71 is headed for the retirement on June 30, 2009 we have uncovered another Sage document that seems to say that those on a MAS90 Value Support plan will be able to obtain support through 9/30/2010. If you are making a decision on whether to upgrade/migrate from a 3.71 installation please consult with a competent Sage Business Partner for the latest information prior to making any final determination.
MAS90 and MAS200 version 3.71 appear headed toward “end of life” as of June 30, 2010. (see note at top of this post for updated information)
Whether Sage meant to disclose this tidbit quite yet (or not) – the latest Supported Platform Matrix dated February 11, 2009 contains this tidbit of information.
Of course the older Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 versions were no longer actively sold but Sage had been offering a value plan which for $1,000 per year gave users of the 3.71 version the capability of buying additional users and modules under what was termed their Value Plan.
Update: Link to MAS 90 and MAS 200 Value Plan offer as of September 2009
Recently Sage have been making noise about an upcoming retirement schedule for their product line.
As of now, the following versions of Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 are still supported:
- 3.71-3.74 (MAS 200 SQL)
Although each of these levels is officially supported – Sage offers varying levels of response and support for them. For example version 4.2 and earlier no longer receive service update bundles. Versions 4.05 and earlier no longer have fixes listed in Sage’s knowledgebase. (For a complete list of the support differences see our earlier story here)
