Our USU Software Asset Management solution has the most intelligent SAP rule definitions in the industry. You get the right information to determine individual license usage (e.g. named user or engine), and to simulate big license changes such as S/4HANA migration, Rise with SAP or moving to the cloud.

We find the most cost-effective SAP licenses while ensuring you are compliant with SAP’s license measurements.

S/4HANA migration: Navigating the SAP® multiverse

S/4HANA requires much more than just a change in technology, such as a simple software upgrade or a move to the cloud:

  • To get the most out of S/4HANA, processes need to be transformed
  • The licensing model has changed completely and must first be understood
  • New licenses must be purchased without having recouped old investments
  • SAP software remains costly - despite possible high discounts in contract negotiations
  • The task is to measure differrent SAP landscapes - the SAP multiverse - and maintain an overview

Choose Digital Access or Indirect Access?

Make a decision your budget won’t regret. SAP says Digital Access’s document licensing is easy and convenient – but is it cheaper than indirect access?

Our SAP solution helps you decide by looking at important options such as:

  • Find your indirect access risk, and use our SAP solution to calculate its cost
  • Get a clear, flexible overview of all documents created through indirect access
  • Use your overview to simulate the cost of switching from indirect access to Digital Access
  • Decide if the convenience of document licenses is worth the price that SAP wants you to pay.
