Get Insights for Better Classifying SAP Accounts

The essence of optimizing your SAP licensing is classifying each employee to the right SAP license type. This is crucial because there is a huge variance between the price of the basic "Employee Self Service" or "ESS" license type and the "Professional" license type, so a mistake can result in significant additional costs.
ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor enables you to analyze your users' behavior and compare it to common methods:

  • Amount of Activity – see how your users’ behavior translates to license types according to their amount of usage in all systems
  • Amount of Different Activities – consider the amount of the spread of activities to identify incorrect SAP license types
  • Groups of Activities – classify users’ accounts according to the type of activity that they perform and get a clear understanding of de-facto usage analysis
  • Own Licensing Model – include special business rules in ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor to support your specific SAP licensing contract
The ability to analyze a huge amount of usage data and connect it directly to SAP licensing types is unique to ProfileTailor LicenseAuditor.
