Security and Compliance Research Report
You may also find our Security and Compliance Research Report of interest.
As General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) fills the news headlines, compliance has become a growing concern for many organisations. In April 2017 we completed a survey and captured responses from 102 SAP user organisations within UK & Ireland regarding the security and compliance of their current SAP landscape.
Licencing White Paper
This White Paper has been prepared by UKISUG providing a high level summary in respect of the different types of SAP product licences based on information exchanges with SAP.
This White Paper does not cover Indirect licencing. The White Paper also includes details of where to research additional information. The White Paper is aimed at both new and established SAP customers who are members of UKISUG.
Transparency Service information
We have recently announced anonymised access to the Licencing Transparency Centre for all of our members.
If you are concerned about how your organisation is licenced for indirect use, the Licencing Transparency Centre will enable you to submit anonymised use cases or scenarios via the User Group and get feedback from SAP.
This initiative has been driven through SUGEN (SAP User Group Executive Network).
Earlier this year at SAPPHIRE Now, SAP announced it would be making changes relating to the indirect use of SAP systems and more recently, they launched a whitepaper on Indirect Access; providing greater detail on how it is modernising pricing around three scenarios:
- Order to Cash
- Procure to Pay
- Static Read
We are sure you and many of our members will have questions regarding specific use cases on how indirect use of SAP is being interpreted. We also understand that you want to get answers, without the fear of SAP automatically penalising you for being incorrectly licenced.
The level of feedback from SAP will depend on the level of information provided by you. As this is anonymous, the responses from SAP will be generic.
If your organisation is looking to submit anonymised use cases or scenarios, or require any further information on any of the above, please contact the User Group at email@example.com.
