What is beta?

Beta Shipment is intended to help SAP collect customer feedback and insight for new releases of existing products in the late development and test phases before the release-to-customer (RTC) date that marks the availability of a production ready software release. Beta Shipments are provided under a test and evaluation agreement (TEA) and can be used for testing purposes only. Productive usage is not allowed and is not supported under the maintenance and support agreement.

During beta phase a Test and Evaluation Agreement (TEA) is required between your organization and SAP AG. This TEA grants a 90-day free trial on a loan basis to test and evaluate the a specific version of the software for temporary installation on a specified platform and test site. The purpose of this Agreement is to enable your organization to test the Software and evaluate how your organization may use the Software to support its business processes. In addition under this Agreement your organization may gain insight for a planned new release. Your organization acknowledges that the Software is a preliminary version and not subject to any productive use license agreement or any other agreement with SAP. SAP has no obligation to offer the Software for productive use or any other use. In addition, SAP has no obligation to include or remove any functionality from the Software in any future version or in any SAP standard product. Your organization and SAP mutually acknowledge and agree that it would be imprudent and unreasonable to rely upon the expectation of entering into a contract regarding the productive use of the Software.
