Effective March 15, 2021, USU Software Asset Management (SAM) includes powerful features for estimating SAP Digital Access as the SAM industry’s first solution to do so.
Software Asset Management (SAM) is the business strategy for maximizing savings and assuring compliance by actively controlling and automating the purchase, utilization, and deployment of software licenses and Online Services.
The solution simulates the logic of SAP’s own Digital Access Estimation Tool to produce a comparable analysis and accurately predict the number of document licenses required as part of Digital Access. With the results of all systems on one console, you get full visibility into how many digital documents were created by whom in Digital Core. USU Software Asset Management considers important factors in the calculation, such as the exclusion of non-chargeable financial follow-up documents, something that SAP’s own tool was previously unable to do.
SAP customers must decide between two SAP licensing models: switching to Digital Access, which charges per digital document, or sticking to Indirect Access, which charges for third-party use of SAP data. The USU Software Asset Management solution provides an automated way to find out which model offers the more favorable conditions for reducing and avoiding costs.
The SCHNEIDER IT MANAGEMENT Framework SAM Managed Service uses USU software and is the sophisticated and efficient method, which guides you step-by-step to your optimal SAM implementation.
