SAP licensing is complex. The disconnect between what license managers purchase and what SAP administrators deploy can expose your company to compliance risks. Thankfully, we found an easier way to help you understand and optimize your SAP estate.
What makes managing SAP licensing so hard?
- Contracts can be difficult to interpret and may have been amended multiple times throughout your software lifecycle.
- SAP commonly requires you to complete an annual review and LAW tool output as part of an audit. Handled incorrectly, these can heavily expose your organization.
- SAP named-user licenses are confusing and it’s challenging to understand what you have and what you need.
- New licensing models when migrating to S4/HANA Cloud or Rise with SAP mean understanding your current licensing model and usage is key for a successful conversion.
Transform your SAP confusion into SAP Mastery.
