Aspera sets new standard for SAP user licensing based on authorizations with LicenseControl for SAP® Software

New version 4.0 also facilitates migration to the new S4/HANA world

Aachen/Germany, April 23, 2018 – Aspera, the world's leading provider of SAP license management, today introduced the new version of its LicenseControl for SAP platform. This allows companies to classify their SAP user licenses based on authorizations as well as the user assignment by usage, which is still common practice.

This is increasingly essential for SAP licensing costs, as SAP will soon determine license type and license price by the functions that users could use, instead of their actual usage.

LicenseControl for SAP Version 4.0 offers powerful new features:

  • Classifies SAP users according to actual use or existing authorizations and display the difference between them, which is especially helpful for a company with a mix of old and new contracts
  • Adds the flexibility to assign license types directly to individual SAP user accounts, or to classify individual SAP roles by license type based on rules
  • Shows how many user licenses the company needs from the new license types before their S/4 migration, supporting a smooth transition
  • Supports all new functions of the SAP system measurement tools USMM and LAW 2.0
  • Offers the same options for rule-based license assignment as the new USMM, but with more filtering features and easier license type assignment

"With the new version of LicenseControl, we offer our customers far-reaching license optimization based on authorizations," said Guido Schneider, Aspera’s SAP Senior Product Management Advisor. "Without having to take an additional step, you are both S4/HANA-compliant and license-optimized. We don't want our customers have to pay more for SAP licenses in the new world than in the old world."
