Continuous Optimization of SAP Licensing
Due to SAP’s complex licensing environment, organizations are compelled to find ways to secure their SAP investments and manage their SAP licenses effectively. The essence of optimizing your SAP licensing is classifying each employee to the right SAP license type. This is crucial because there is a huge variance between the price of the basic “Employee Self Service” or “ESS” license type and the “Professional” license type, so a misclassification can result in significant additional costs.
Avoiding Hidden Costs
In today’s complex SAP environment, many organizations seek a reliable tool for monitoring SAP engines. The complexity of SAP software engines presents a real challenge for enterprises in terms of compliance and resources.
