5 Replies and 7774 Views When will Lawson version 10 no longer be supported?  7774  5 Started by  lawgic Hi gurus! Wondering if anyone has clarity on when maintream maintenance, i.e., standard support will go away for Infor v10. Our current contract is till 2022, and I'm wondering how hard we need to think about version 11 Also, I imagine that if there is standard support, there is non-standard support, and I'm curious what is the premium on that Thanks.

We used to be able to copy our production data to our DR data, make a few adjustments and bring up the systems. Infor is telling us that it is impossible now.
