The JAMToolkit license management feature allows an existing SAP license model to be integrated with the JAMToolkit Usage Analysis to provide an easy-to-use categorisation of end-user licenses.
SAP license models and agreements can be difficult to understand and even more difficult to apply against the end-user community. As a result, companies could be purchasing more licenses than they need or exceeding their licensing terms which could lead to unforeseen costs.
At JAMTEC we believe that our customers of the JAMToolkit are seeing real cost benefits with our License Management feature. By leveraging the rich data source from the JAMToolkit Usage Analysis, the License Management feature can help categorise end-users against a suitable license type based on their active SAP roles and responsibilities.
The JAMToolkit reporting illustrates a three-way comparisons between; an existing license agreement; existing end-user license types and the JAMToolkit end-user license proposal.
There are over 100 different types of SAP licenses available which are designed to cater for a wide variety of systems, modules, industries and business models. Here are some of the most common:
- SAP Application Professional
- SAP Application Limited Professional
- SAP Application Employee
- SAP Application Developer
Understanding the SAP licenses applicable to your organisation is key to ensuring the right end-user categorisaton is applied. Using the SAP Application Limited Professional (as above) as an example; this type of end-user can perform limited functional operations only, and not System Administration. It can have only one changeable transaction, and the rest will all be display only transactions.
Industry specific licenses can significantly reduce overall licensing costs, such as SAP Retail Store User; SAP Health care User and Banking User.
