SAP Indirect Access has been a contentious topic within the SAP User Group communities since well before the Diageo case came to light.

Since then there have been some key developments like the SAPPHIRE Now licencing announcement, which had a hint of mass commercialization about it.

The AB-InBev case caused a stir, and in the USA the Duke Memorandum was published setting out an argument against indirect access licensing policies as anti-trust and illegal.

There has also been the emergence of Robotic Process Automation, with an equal level of uncertainty around how the interaction between RPA and SAP should be licensed. Reservations remain as to how forthcoming customers can be with SAP about potential indirect usage, for fear of back maintenance fees, and doubt about their legitimacy.

Paul Cooper UKISUG Chair, also maintained the focus on indirect access, and licensing concerns in general, in his keynote address at the recent User Group Conference.
