Limited Support dates approaching for these Remedy versions

Remedy versions 9.1.00 through 9.1.02 will move to Limited Support on December 22, 2018. To review what Limited Support means, see https://www.bmc.com/support/resources/bmc-product-support-policy.html.

BMC recommends that customers move to a fully supported version. Our latest release, 18.08, is fully supported for almost 3 years. Version 18.08 introduced a rich set of valuable features and new options for Cognitive Service Management. For a summary of the enhancement delivered by BMC in recent Remedy releases, see https://communities.bmc.com/docs/DOC-110514. As you can see in the summary,  we made many improvements to the upgrade process (specifically for the Remedy platform). An upgrade to the latest release (18.08) from Remedy versions 9.1.00 through 9.1.02 will be easier than previous upgrades. Note that Remedy 18.08 is not a new major release. It is a feature release based on the Remedy 9.1 code line. There are no major technology changes.

As a reminder, you can always review the end of support dates at http://www.bmc.com/support under A-Z Supported Products. From this list, you can search for the product. For example, for Remedy ITSM Suite, this information is published at https://webapps.bmc.com/support/faces/az/prodallversions.jsp?seqid=158016.
