Migrating to PowerBuilder 2019 & InfoMaker 2019 is Easy

SAP announced the end of maintenance of PowerBuilder 12.6 and InfoMaker for June 30, 2018.  Appeon recommends existing customers to upgrade in order to receive continued technical support from Appeon as well as benefit from new features. SAP customers wishing to receive this upgrade should purchase a new subscription from Appeon or its authorized resellers.  

Step 1 - Understand the New Licensing & Features 

Subscription Licensing 

  • Perpetual licenses are no longer offered.  Both PowerBuilder and InfoMaker are sold on a pure subscription basis only. 
  • A subscription includes a non-perpetual license, updates, and standard technical support
  • Licenses can be readily assigned and reassigned to a named developer through the Appeon Website. 

New Features & Windows 10

Upgrading to PowerBuilder 2019 & InfoMaker 2019 ensures you are supported on Windows 10,  you can modernize the existing app's UI instantly, develop C# projects, deploy your application to Web & Mobile easily, and experience a number of new features.

Step 2 - Buy the Correct Edition 

Edition Recommendation  

    The Standard Edition is adequate for many existing customers.  If you’d like to benefit from the new C# development and migration capabilities of PowerBuilder 2019, we recommend purchasing the Cloud Edition or higher.
