With the new release, users can now choose if they want to use the tool in SAP GUI or SAP Fiori. In contrast to SAP GUI, the optional Fiori interface allows a graphical view of the data, overviews at a glance and the activation of alert messages. With the Fiori Add-on, samQ can also be used on mobile devices, e.g. tablets.
Core Functions Via SAP GUI
“The heart of samQ is the automated license allocation and optimization. These core functions are and always will be available via SAP GUI,” explains Martin Kögel, Director Business Development at Voquz.
Kögel adds,“On the basis of Fiori, however, we will be able to provide our customers with many additional analysis functions in the future and also offer users a considerably improved user experience.”
In both versions, the release 2.0 provides new analysis features and allows the creation of different license scenarios. Analyzes can be conducted with any desired customizing settings, without affecting existing settings and the daily optimization routine.
Creating A Test Environment
Advantageous constellations can be saved or applied directly. This way, scenarios can be developed, which take into account license types that are not yet in the customer’s license portfolio. For this purpose, samQ provides additional templates for license types “worker”, “logistics” and “project user”.
Additionally, samQ users have the option to distribute the so-called multi-client license key automatically across the various SAP systems. This feature also allows to define the primary system for the user.
This way, duplicate user billing during LAW consolidation can be avoided, as it guarantees that each user has only one user license. The allocation of the multi-client license key is compliant to SAP specifications.
The add-on module for engine measurement has been extended and now allows a fully automated system measurement of users and engines. Here the USMM measurement results, meaning the full result reports, are stored historically in samQ and are available for various analyzes at any time.
User Activity Analysis
samQ is the leading software for SAP license management that allows a fully automated and periodically repeated 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 easier use due to the new user interface.
This is available free of charge to all samQ customers with an active maintenance agreement. Only the module for system measurement and the use of the Fiori interface incur additional costs.
