License Analysis for Cost Optimization

Overview about License Analysis and news in SAP S/4HANA

License-optimized SAP S/4HANA Transformation

Efficient Optimization and Cost Savings for Your License Management

The „minimum principle“ and „needs-based roles“ are common requirements in the SAP authorization world. With the switch 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. This is the only way to avoid over-licensing in S/4HANA. The associated changes and the effort involved are difficult to assess for many companies.

Our solution

Integration of the SAP License Ruleset into XAMS

The integration of  SAP’s official license ruleset in XAMS improves transparency and enables efficient license determination with the Role Profiler. The combination with the Role Designer also offers considerable added value. While you are modeling roles in a virtual environment, a check against the license ruleset can be carried out automatically. This allows correct license types to be identified at an early stage and taken into account during the role design. 

Maximize Savings:
