Last week we shared the rumor, this week it became official. SAP is extending the DAAP (Digital Access Adoption Program, a discount program for SAP customers to sign on to the Digital Access pricing model).
Read here the official announcement.
The announcement didn’t really surprise us. Since years we are constantly working on indirect access project and helping our customers to reach transparency about their exposure, helping them to mitigate and negotiate their license position. So it has been clear to us, that there is still a large number of SAP customers who either did not yet touch the topic or are still struggling to find a solution.
One reason, why it is often hard to define a solution, is that very often there is no correlation between a number of documents created and a business value or outcome. Next week we will publish here some statistics and findings taken from our projects on this topic.
DAAP will be extended for nearly 2 years, but annual audits are still on in the meantime. Be sure, indirect/digital access will be more and more a focus point of the annual self audits. The “passport” feature will be used to count the digital access documents. So don’t lay back and wait for the next 2 years!
Not knowing won’t protect you. We are analyzing passport intensively to find out any where our customers will have to be careful.
With our advisory team and our samQ solution we can support you in reaching transparency about any exposure and define a strategy going forward.
Because even with a 90% discount on offer, the financial impact is often more than just
