[White Paper] SAP Software Licensing – Indirect / Digital Access and its Threat to Your Business

3D Cover SAP Indirect Digital Access and Its Threat to Your Business UpperEdge 1

Indirect Access is an issue that CIOs simply cannot afford to ignore as it can expose both old and new SAP customers to substantial incremental fees. Indirect Access violations can occur when a user or third-party application creates, manipulates, or views data in the SAP systems via an interface between a third-party application and SAP.

Unfortunately, the lack of clarity around SAP’s definition of “use” makes preventing and avoiding out-of-compliance fees a challenge. While SAP touted the Digital Access model as a more transparent and predictable alternative to the Indirect Access model, it too has its challenges and, in some cases, customers are better served remaining on the Indirect Access model.
