Driven by unprecedented collaboration with user groups, customers, partners and industry analysts, SAP has today announced a new sales, audit and pricing model for its Digital Access licensing policies commonly known as “Indirect Access.” The new approach makes it easier and more transparent for customers to use and pay for SAP® software licenses. It also differentiates between Direct/Human and Indirect/Digital Access1, while clarifying the rules of engagement for licensing, usage and compliance.
New Pricing Model
The new model – a first of its kind for the enterprise software industry – addresses challenges faced by some customers when it comes to pricing for Indirect/Digital Access.
Clear Separation of License Sales from Audit and Compliance
SAP also introduced new organisational changes that separate license sales departments and procedures from auditing departments and procedures.
Timeline and Additional Information
SAP began rollout of the new licensing, sales and audit policies in April 2018. SAP will continue to provide educational resources and tools for customers in the coming months to help them fully understand the new licensing approach and decide on the right model for them.< Back to all news
