Our solution finds the most cost-effective SAP licenses while ensuring you are compliant with SAP’s license measurements.

Know your S/4HANA migration costs

SAP wants its customers to migrate to S/4HANA quickly. But you risk of paying too much if you rush into this change. A cost-effective migration starts with analyzing your current SAP environment, which is where our SAP solution comes in:

  • Simulate different scenarios to forecast your migration costs
  • Determine how many licenses you need for “SAP Professional,” “SAP Functional,” or “SAP Productivity”
  • Automatically convert to the most cost-effective S/4HANA licenses and avoid over-licensing
  • Uncover cost-saving potential in your current SAP estate to use against your S/4HANA license purchases

  • 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
