Challenges in SAP licence management

Digitalisation projects are demanding in terms of technology and personnel. Transition projects also harbour financial risks. The introduction of new technologies such as SAP S/4HANA requires the right licences and contracts in line with the operating model (cloud & on-premise) at the best possible conditions. Incorrect, overpriced or unnecessarily purchased SAP licences can result in high costs.

Efficient SAP licence management with KPMG AIM

With the help of the KPMG Authorisation & Identity Management Downloader, the hardware and software consumption data relevant to surveying is collected at source.

Reliable data and well-founded key figures enable long-term financial planning and support you in making business decisions for IT projects. Our process is versatile and can be used individually for existing environments as well as for planning S/4HANA licence and contract negotiations.

With the help of our KPMG Digital Licence Protection from our Managed Service offering, we assume the additional payment costs for SAP licence and maintenance claims that may result from an SAP licence audit - quickly and easily.

  • Use our data-based analysis methodology to identify risks at an early stage and realise financial potential
  •  Technical and financial dashboards support the continuous management of licences in purchasing and controlling
  • Cost simulation for the conversion to S/4HANA licences for deciding on a suitable time and a licence and contract model

Ongoing compliance: The role of KPMG AIM in SAP licence management
