Advanced SAP license management that changes the game

SAP License Management

LicenseControl for SAP® Software ensures your company pays only for the licenses you need. At its heart are the most intelligent SAP rule definitions in the Software Asset Management (SAM) industry.

Know your S/4HANA migration’s cost

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

  • Simulate different scenarios to forecast your migration’s cost
  • Find out how many “SAP Professional Use,” “SAP Functional Use,” and “SAP Productivity Use” licenses you need
  • Automatically assign the most cost-effective S/4HANA licenses in a product conversion to avoid costly over-licensing
  • Reveal cost-saving potential in your current SAP estate to use against your S/4HANA license purchases

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? LicenseControl helps you decide between indirect access and Digital Access:

Find your indirect access risk, and use LicenseControl to calculate its cost

Get a clear, flexible overview of all documents created through indirect access

Use that overview to simulate the cost of switching from indirect access to Digital Access

Decide if document licenses’ convenience is worth the price that SAP wants you to pay

Face your biggest SAP obstacles

  • Measure engine licenses: Ensure each engine is accurately measured, no matter how complicated it is, by linking and updating SAP’s ever-changing metrics.
  • Assign unclassified accounts: Classify user accounts that do not have an assigned license type and assign a price to correctly evaluate the potential costs involved.
  • Use lowest-cost named user: Assign the least costly license type for named users, based on actual usage, avoiding SAP’s automatic expensive Professional User license.
  • See authorization-based licensing: Reduce the scope of authorization and assign the most cost-effective license.
