SAP Licensing Advisory Services

When it comes to SAP, deep expertise counts


SAP Licensing Advisory Services

As SAP ECC 6.0 approaches end-of-support in 2027, organisations need additional staff and expertise to prepare to migrate to the cloud and SAP S/4HANA. You want to ensure the technical migration goes smoothly, but are you also taking the licensing implications into account? Unplanned SAP negotiations can lead to uncontrolled licence and cloud spending. What is the best alternative for your current on-premises licences? Are you better off with a product conversion or a contract conversion, or is a subscription model like RISE with SAP the better alternative for you?

SoftwareOne SAP Licensing Advisory Services provide experts who understand every detail of SAP software licensing. Our SAP licensing specialists give you the advantage in commercial negotiations.

Our SAP experts provide the analysis and recommendations that help you control your SAP spending as your IT organisation responds to business change and transformation initiatives. We assess your licence utilisation and propose contract optimisations so that you get the most out of your SAP spend.
