Software takes new SAP licensing model into account

In April, SAP introduced a new pricing model for digital-access licensing that shifts from user-based licensing to the number of "digital documents" created by the system.

Snow's SAP development team has incorporated logic into Snow Optimizer for SAP Software that provides more value and automation than SAP's own Indirect Access measurement tool.

Certified license optimization

Snow's new Digital Access Estimator for SAP provides a simplified, automated method for calculating costs under the Digital Access licensing model.

Snow Optimizer for SAP Software is an SAP-certified application that enables SAP customers to make informed decisions about whether or how to implement the new licensing options and avoid unnecessary costs and liabilities.

Digital Access Estimator for SAP is the only solution available that provides granular calculation of digital document creation at the user level with a consolidated view of all documents created in SAP systems.

Snow Optimizer for SAP Software provides a unique summary report that forecasts costs based on the number of documents created.

"Customers need a fair and transparent way to track document creation and understand how much the new pay-for-value model will cost"

says Peter Björkman, CTO at Snow Software.
