*This post primarily pertains to on-premise Deltek Vision customers using the Payroll module.
Several of my Deltek Vision customers on version 7.3 or older recently asked me which versions will no longer be supported at the end of 2015. Unfortunately Deltek’s product release table can be a little confusing and out of date, so I reached out to some colleagues on the Deltek Vision Product Team for clarification.
Deltek Vision 7.3 WILL Receive Year-End Payroll Updates
Deltek Vision 7.3 will receive the Year-End Payroll updates in December. These will be followed by applicable regulatory updates and hotfixes issued in January of 2016. However, it’s important to note that this will be the last update to Vision 7.3. If you’re using a version prior to 7.3 and the payroll module, you must update!
Maintenance Support for Deltek Vision 7.3 is Being Retired
Though 7.3 will receive it’s last YE payroll update, you also need to be aware the maintenance support for this version will also cease at the end of January. We understand that upgrading at this point may not be an option, but we are actively encouraging our Vision clients on outdated versions to consider a cloud deployment of Deltek Vision or upgrade to version 7.5 in 2016.
