This release offers a new module, which will make the results of the yearly system measurement more transparent for clients. The LAW workbench compares the results of the SAP tools LAW with the results of samQ and will alert about discrepancies.
„Usually SAP requests a self-audit by their customers on system usage in the second half of the year. By using samQ, the system measurement can be automated and centrally governed“, says Martin Koegel, Director Business Development at Voquz. „Within samQ’s new LAW Workbench, results are traceable, as there is a new drill-down down to user and client level.
Additionally, samQ 3.0 offers a new feature for authorization analysis, which identifies if the SAP user is working based on certain authorizations or if there is a possible authorization overhang. samQ correctly assigns license types based on usage activity and can now also compare this to existing authorizations. „
samQ optimizes the user licenses based on activity by default, but many SAP users apply role and authorization concepts for licensing. Often this can cause over-licensing as authorizations are not completely used as they are granted” explains Martin Koegel.
In addition, many existing features have been improved. The samQ report is interactive and allows a precise analysis of the individual result values via drill-downs. The graphic presentation in Fiori dashboard has been optimized further, helping license managers see the optimal overview of consumption data at a glance.
Compliance alerts give users notice ahead of time, when the amount of a certain license-type has been used or critical engine and package consumption has been reached.
New All-In-One Package
The pricing of samQ licenses also has been revised. Future customers will have all modules of the license optimization tool available within the standard tier. No extra costs occur for using the Fiori dashboard and the system measurement module.
“It’s our mission to make SAP licensing as easy as possible. We achieve this by offering a simple licensing model”, says Martin Koegel.
samQ is the leading software for SAP license management that allows a fully automated and continuous analysis of SAP user activities. It assesses this usage data with the correct license type and optimizes the overall license inventory.
Automatically or at the press of a button, the tool collects all license information in order to verify software license compliance. The new release offers license managers a better transparency and an optimum support during SAP system measurements.
The new version is free of charge to all samQ customers with an active maintenance contract. All customers using a basic license so far, Voquz offers an attractive upgrade to the new all-inclusive license.
