BSH Home Appliances wins 2nd place at the renowned 2017 SAMS Awards

Aspera’s LicenseControl for SAP rolled out worldwide in only two months

Aachen/Munich, Germany, 7 March 2017 – Aspera’s client BSH Home Appliances – a 100% subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH based in Munich – was awarded 2nd place at the 2017 SAMS Awards ceremony last night in Berlin for the global introduction of a software license management solution to measure SAP licenses.

BSH, the largest manufacturer of household appliances in Europe, won in the “Tool / Software” category. In a prolific roll-out that took only two months, the SAM team managed to integrate all the group companies worldwide and connect a total of 60 SAP system

“Correctly measuring SAP software licenses presents great challenges for all clients,” explained Dr. Michael Moebius, Head of License Management at BSH. “We are therefore very pleased to receive this award. As part of the project, we were able to reproduce the SAP requirements while taking into account our specific circumstances. This is an important building block in driving digital change at BSH Home Appliances.”

The project involved measuring and optimizing software usage by utilizing Aspera’s LicenseControl for SAP. The project aimed to reduce measurement and maintenance requirements in order to better plan for and verify future needs as well as improve the quality of all the information relating to SAP license data. In doing so, measuring the numerous existing SAP systems worldwide should not affect daily business.

“We congratulate BSH on this well-deserved recognition,” said license expert Guido Schneider from Aspera. “The constant changes to SAP license terms, with regard to direct and indirect use, can only be resolved via thorough knowledge of the contractual clauses and careful analysis.”
