4 Steps to SAP Licence Optimisation

SAP licensing is complex. Licence management, contractual obligations, complicated metrics, and industry-specific systems combine to make SAP licence optimisation a very necessary art. And as high-profile examples such as the SAP vs Diageo case show, misunderstandings can come with a damaging price tag. The key to avoiding this is awareness of your exact licence usage. Once you have the data, SAP licence optimisation is relatively easy to achieve.

Even if you believe you’re totally compliant, there’s a chance your organisation could save money by cutting under-used licences. In fact, the majority of SAP users are over-licensed, typically by 20 to 30 percent.

Over-Licensing and How to Avoid It

Over-licensing usually occurs when SAP licensing is based on predicted usage, rather than actual usage. To take one example, identifying 10 employees who are over-licensed by £2,000 would result in an immediate saving of £20,000. By replicating this process across dormant, low-activity, and duplicate users, the savings increase rapidly. Again, the key here is understanding and in-depth analysis.

With 25 years of BI licensing experience behind us, Influential Software’s consultants are experts in the field. And as an independent SAP Partner trusted by FTSE 100 and 250 clients, we have your best interests at heart. Don’t let SAP licensing weigh you down—consult the experts today.

The Hidden Danger of Non-Compliance

The SAP vs Diageo case showed just how slippery licensing agreements can be. At the crux of the issue were the definitions of “use”, “access”, “direct”, and “indirect”. The verdict ruled that Diageo’s indirect access to the SAP licences via a third-party system was included in the agreement’s definition. For this reason regular technical audits, conducted with a thorough understanding of SAP licence agreements, are crucial to ensuring compliance.

Quick Questions for SAP Licence Optimisation

  • Do you frequently check the licence usage in your organisation?
  • Are your organisation’s licensing agreements available to all who need them?
  • Do you have clear responsibilities defined for SAP software asset management?
  • Are you aware of how many surplus SAP licences you could redeploy?

If the answer to any of these questions is negative or unsure, then SAP licence optimisation should be a priority.

How to Excel at SAP Software Asset Management

The route to savings and compliance consists of four basic steps.

1. Evaluation

Our consultants will provide a report of your contractually available SAP licences and how that contrasts with SAP’s view on your environment. This will show up any licensing gaps that could indicate non-compliance.

2. Optimisation

An in-depth analysis of your usage will reveal your actual SAP software activity. This will highlight issues such as incorrect deployments, outdated software, accidental installations, and duplicate licences.

3. Renegotiation

At this point it’s important to turn any grey areas in your SAP agreement into black and white. Having negotiated with SAP on clients’ behalf for over 20 years, we hold our corner in this domain.

4. Ongoing awareness

By developing processes for ongoing monitoring of licence usage, you will ensure accurate licensing and compliance into the future.

SAP Analytics Business Intelligence Statement of Direction Announced

For some while there has been uncertainty surrounding the future of the SAP Analytics portfolio. Now SAP has addressed this by publishing the “SAP Analytics Business Intelligence Statement of Direction”.

In this post, UK SAP Partner Influential Software looks at the Executive Summary from the report. There will be further posts to come.

The Executive Summary

To begin here’s a complete breakdown of the Executive Summary within the SAP Analytics Business Intelligence, Statement of Direction report.

The ‘future direction’ for SAP Analytics

“The SAP Analytics portfolio includes SAP Business Objects BI Suite (including Analysis for Office), SAP Business Planning & Consolidation, as well as SAP Analytics Cloud. We provide solutions for a diverse set of customer environments including on-premise, cloud, mixed and embedded analytics deployments. This paper describes our future direction for our Business Intelligence customers.”

Changing the way customers run their business

“SAP Analytics Cloud is our strategic direction and is changing the way our customers run their business to help them understand their data in context to make better and faster decisions. The integration of BI, planning and predictive analytics in a single engine allows for a smooth experience and lossless transitions from reporting to simulation to planning and back again, all augmented by machine learning. SAP Analytics Cloud gives everyone visibility on critical information by providing self-service analytics capabilities that extend to a wider audience than ever before, while delivering on the true needs for Analytics in the enterprise: scale, security, and corporate data connectivity.”

Leveraging SAP’s Cloud Suite

“Analytics without context has less value. As part of SAP’s Intelligent Enterprise strategy SAP Analytics Cloud will be embedded in SAP’s Cloud suite; not only can more users benefit from SAP Analytics Cloud, we also can better meet the precise requirements in each different domain.”

Future-proofing SAP BusinessObjects

“As we define the future of SAP Analytics Cloud, we are committed to include a future for our existing SAP BusinessObjects customers. SAP pays great attention to BusinessObjects Suite and will continue to invest in the future of this product. The BOE maintenance extends until 2027 at a minimum, providing maintenance timelines among the longest in the industry.”

Delivering major innovations pre-BI 4.3 release

“We are delivering major innovations in the coming year with the BI 4.3 release, and will continue to do so through continued maintenance. As more and more customers run both solutions side by side, we are proposing more interoperability and are working on defining tools and capabilities to help our customers who want to transition their workloads to the cloud.”

A commitment to SAP Analytics customers?

Influential Software SAP Partnership and Sales Head Chris Nelson welcomes the announcement. In his opinion, it answers many of the questions SAP customers and partners have been raising about the future of the SAP Analytics portfolio.

“It’s good to see this statement of direction from SAP. It clarifies some important points for our SAP Analytics customers and shows that SAP has listened to customer feedback in prioritising the areas to focus on.

“A lot depends on the detail which hasn’t yet been released, but by addressing things like time handling and scheduling in SAP Analytics Cloud, confirming the maintenance schedules for on-premise customers, and looking at the licensing around the hybrid model, it is clear SAP is committed to delivering ongoing value to its BI customers to help drive their businesses forward.”

Understanding the SAP Business Objects Licensing Model

Understanding the SAP Business Objects Licensing Model - Blog

As a general rule, SAP licensing is based on two components: packages and named users. The SAP Business Objects licensing model is quite straightforward. There’s no longer a need to consider CPUs or cores. And if you only use SAP BusinessObjects as display-only BI, then named user licences are not necessary either. That leaves us with package licences to consider.

However, the type of package licence you require depends on metrics. For the SAP Business Objects licensing model, these metrics are “concurrent session” and “user”. It’s up to you which of these, separately or together, you want to use.

Could you reduce your BusinessObjects costs?

Metrics in the SAP Business Objects Licensing Model

There’s a simple way to differentiate “user” licences and “concurrent session” licences. While concurrent session licences can be used by anyone—but only one at a time—user licences are reserved for a particular person.

So with a concurrent session licence, other users will have to wait for the current user to leave before they can use the licence. But a user licence is available to a single, named person at all times.

Concurrent Sessions in Practice

Let’s look at a practical example of concurrent sessions. In this scenario, the administrator sets up 1,000 users of the type “concurrent session”. At the same time, the system is limited to 250 logins (concurrent sessions) at the same time. Therefore, when the 251st user tries to log in, the system won’t allow it. But when one of the 250 users logs off, then the waiting user will be allowed in.

The key to setting up this kind of licensing correctly is to look at historical usage data to inform the number of concurrent sessions you’ll need.

In addition to the above, here are a few notable points:

A single user can engage in multiple sessions at the same time if these are across different access points, such as Live Office, BI Launchpad, or BI Mobile. Concurrent session licences are limited to one deployment. They cannot be shared across various deployments you might have.

User Licensing in Practice

It’s worth clarifying that named users do not count towards the number of concurrent sessions being consumed at any time. In addition, named users can log in to multiple deployments—they aren’t limited to one.

Beyond Display Only Licensing

There are some users, such as administrators and query builders, who will need greater rights than display only. For these roles, there are the following named user licences:

  • SAP Business Expert User
  • SAP Business Analytics Professional User
  • SAP Business Intelligence (BI) Limited User

BusinessObjects Licence Optimisation

Cutting to the bottom line, how can you optimise your SAP BusinessObjects licensing model? The answer is by identifying your usage and tailoring your licensing to match. Of course, the licensing model will change and it pays to find expert support. Both in terms of compliance and to avoid excess costs, our licence optimisation services are an investment in peace of mind.

SAP BusinessObjects 4.3 Features for Hybrid Deployment

SAP BusinessObjects 4.3 Features for Hybrid Deployment - Blog

While cloud BI is gaining traction, the majority of enterprises want to retain their on-premise investments as well. The new SAP BusinessObjects 4.3 features, scheduled for Q2 2020, are set to meet this hybrid requirement.

For those whose main interest still lies in on-premise, there’s nothing to fear. SAP’s ongoing investment into SAP BusinessObjects and Web Intelligence (WebI) demonstrates this. Customers using version 4.2 will be able to transition to 4.3 with a simple update. No migration is required.

The SAP BusinessObjects 4.3 features will facilitate this hybrid deployment by improving connectivity between on-premise and SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). These developments take the following form:

  • Synchronisation of on-premise BusinessObjects users with SAC
  • An improved live connection between SAC and universes
  • Consumption from SAC Webi documents as a data source
  • Automatic report publishing through integration with SAP Analytics Hub

Are you in need of SAP BI assistance? Whether you’re firmly on-premise or looking at the cloud, our SAP consultants have the experience to assist. Find out more on our SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Analytics Cloud websites—or simply drop us a message.

Details of the New Hybrid Structure

The key to version 4.3’s hybrid structure is stronger integration with SAP Analytics Cloud. This includes the following changes to Live Universe Connector 3.0:

Increased performance, without moving on-premises data to the cloud, when using SAP Analytics Cloud on top of BusinesObjects Universes

  • The option to apply data-level security
  • Support for SAP Analytics Cloud features – regardless of the data source – such as powerful queries and visualisations made with business terms
  • Better support of SAP Analytics Cloud capabilities, such as powerful queries and visualizations created using business terms, regardless of the data source

Streamlined User Management and SSO Configuration

Another new feature of this hybrid structure is the SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence Data Model. With this capability you can both reuse your existing Web Intelligence documents to build new information and consume Web Intelligence data in SAC.

Meanwhile, hybrid user management enables you to deliver System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) APIs. In this way you can easily onboard on-premise groups or individual users to the cloud. This also allows SAC users to access on-premise data, via the SAP Identify Provisioning Service.

At SAP, Change Is the Only Constant

As we have seen, SAP BusinessObjects 4.3 brings a host of improvements in response to customer demand. The BI landscape continues to evolve in terms of the technology, the skills required, and the business practices around it. At Influential Software, we work to optimise SAP BI with a complete package of technical support, consultancy, and training.

Your Options for SAP Business Objects End of Life: Xcelsius & Explorer

Your Options for SAP Business Objects End of Life | Blog

It seems only yesterday that Adobe announced end of life for Adobe Flash. In reality, that announcement was back in 2017. And there’s now little more than a year before it comes into effect in December 2020. If you’re using SAP BusinessObjects Explorer or Xcelsius, that also means the end of SAP support. So, what are your options for this SAP Business Objects end of life scenario?

Overcoming SAP Business Objects End of Life

SAP Analytics Cloud is the natural progression from SAP BusinessObjects. Capabilities include data visualisation, SMART data discovery, BI reporting, dashboarding and analytic application design (Analytics Designer) and leverages predictive analytics, machine learning, and natural language query.

What’s more, you can keep the benefits of SAP BusinessObjects on-premise while extending into the cloud. The Hybrid capabilities of SAP Analytics Cloud give you access to real-time data. Meanwhile, sensitive data is secure behind your firewall with connectivity to SAP BusinessObjects universes. Other solutions with direct connectivity include SAP BW, SAP HANA, and SAP S/4 HANA, SAP S/4 HANA Cloud Platform, HANA Cloud Platform, and standard third-party databases.

Getting Best Value with SAP Analytics Cloud

But don’t worry: SAP Business Objects end of life doesn’t have to mean a full-scale move. SAP is helping SAP BusinessObjects customers move unused licences and maintenance to SAP Analytics Cloud. That way, you get the new solution while ensuring cost-effectiveness.

SAP BusinessObjects Explorer -> SAP Analytics Cloud Data Discovery

Providing a faceted view of your data, the SAP Analytics Cloud Data Discovery experience is similar to SAP BusinessObjects Explorer.

SAP Ranks High for Natural Language Query Analytics

Natural language query analytics are a key innovation in SAP’s next-generation offering, SAP Analytics Cloud.

Wouldn’t it be great if everyone in your organisation – regardless of their training – could benefit from analytics insights? That’s the aim of natural language query analytics. By processing questions stated in everyday language, NLQ provides quick answers to all kinds of users.

NLQ capabilities are a key innovation in SAP’s next-generation offering, SAP Analytics Cloud. As a Forrester report confirmed last year, SAP Analytics Cloud is a strong performer in the NLQ analytics space. The only organisation of its size to perform so well on NLQ functionality, this SAP software also has an encouraging roadmap in place.

Just as they would use a search engine, SAP Analytics Cloud users can ask about any aspect of the business and then drill down into specific regions, time periods, and more. They then receive answers in language that everyone can understand.

The Business Benefits of NLQ Tech

The benefits of SAP’s natural language query analytics are clear. SAP Analytics Cloud allows you to deploy analytics to a wider user base. This reduces your reliance on niche talent such as data analysts, data engineers, and data scientists, thus saving your organisation time and money.

Is SAP Analytics Cloud Right for You?

All of this sounds very desirable – who doesn’t want insightful answers to simple questions? But of course there’s no single solution for every business. As the name suggests, SAP Analytics Cloud is not available on-premises. The software also offers less scope for customisation than some competitors.

That’s why an experienced SAP Partner is a vital ally in deciding whether SAP Analytics Cloud suits your organisation. With one of the most experienced analytics teams in the UK, Influential Software will clarify the business factors and technical specs you need to know. And if the solution is right for you, we guarantee the best deals on SAP Analytics Cloud licences and supporting services.
