Modern Life Cycle Policy

The Modern Life Cycle Policy covers products serviced and supported continuously, such as the cloud-based products Delphi, iHotelier, Demand360, HotSoS, etc. Under this policy, customers must be licensed to use the product and willing to update, if required by Customer Support, as updates will only be provided for the latest two releases (or a subsequent future release).

Change Notification:

  • Frequent product changes require customers to be alert for product modifications.
  • Unless otherwise noted, Amadeus’ policy is to provide a minimum 30 days notification when customers must take action to avoid significant degradation to the normal use of the product.

Continuity: Amadeus will provide a minimum of 12 months notification prior to ending support if no successor product is offered.

Modern Lifecycle Policy FAQs

Mobile Device Policy

Amadeus will test the most common Apple and Android devices (five of each as determined by global market share) on the most recent 3 major versions of operating systems. Amadeus will also test any new ‘point release’ associated with these major versions.

Customer-reported issues associated with mobile devices will follow standard case escalation flow within Amadeus’ Support organization.

  • Customers must be licensed to use the Amadeus product and remain current on the latest Android or iOS device
  • Amadeus will not provide Engineering Support for devices not compliant with the above.
  • Amadeus will not provide Engineering Support for any device and/or operating system that is no longer supported by the respective manufacturer.
  •  If a reported issue cannot be resolved or an acceptable workaround cannot be provided at the most senior level within Support, the reported issue will not be further escalated to Development. Further, the organization will not make any program or database changes.

Fixed Life Cycle Policy

The Fixed Life Cycle Policy covers traditional software products, enabling Amadeus to deliver innovation for its customers and award-winning service. By responsibly retiring older products and moving customers from legacy solutions to current offerings, Amadeus makes its clients more efficient, effective, and successful in their daily operations.
