Your snapshot of Software Asset Management for SAP
Let’s face it. You know — way better than SAP does — which license types you want to use and which ones you don’t. How can you use the least expensive options while making sure you are compliant?
The Rapid Vendor Analysis service is your entry-level path to finding that balance. It compares your current license types to a simulation of license types in a one-time risk-free analysis.
Quickly improve your negotiation strength
You need to know your SAP license position quickly. But you don’t want to rely on SAP’s license measurement tool. And you don’t have the time or budget for a full Software Asset Management implementation.
That’s where Rapid Vendor Analysis comes in. This SAP analysis can be done in a couple of weeks, and will likely fit into your regular IT budget.
You get quick results that are customized to your requirements. Now you have the information that you need to negotiate a new and improved SAP contract – without installing or buying a tool.
