License Analysis in SAP S/4HANA

Efficient optimization and cost savings for your license management.

The “principle of minimal privilege” and “role-based access” are common demands in the SAP authorization world. With the shift from usage-based to authorization-based license measurement in S/4HANA and the introduction of new S/4HANA user licenses, implementing these principles in your authorization concept is more important than ever. Only in this way can over-licensing in S/4HANA be avoided. The associated changes and the resulting effort are difficult for many companies to assess.

Our solution

Integration of the SAP license rule set into XAMS.

The integration of SAP’s official licensing framework into XAMS improves transparency and enables precise license determination with our Role Profiler. In combination with the Role Designer, this provides significant added value, as the licensing framework is automatically checked during role modeling. This early identification of the correct license types for roles and users is taken into account during the role design process.
