License Optimizer

SUIM's License Optimizer (LO) offers organizations a powerful tool to analyze user roles and transactions usage, for a full view of costs per user, and to optimize their SAP licensing models. LO proposes an optimal license type by user, preventing unnecessary costs and increasing returns on SAP license investments.
Solution is SAP certified - integration with SAP S4/HANA
Overview

SUIM's License Optimizer follows the basic principle that a license type should be determined by what a user actually uses or can potentially use. LO ensures you only pay for the licenses you use and need. For the measurement of the service reference (system measurement), it is crucial that the correct license types are assigned to user master records. LO ensures that the license type applied complies with the applicable policies.

Efficiency

With LO you can achieve major cost savings on SAP licenses in an automated and efficient way. LO facilitates licence budgeting and billing, saving your SAP CC employees precious time, as your SAP licenses can be assigned automatically and precisely.

Flexibility

SUIM's LO can store and adapt to your individual SAP license model. For the internal billing of SAP CCs, you can also store your own rules, processes and keys. In addition, many other customizing options are available (validities, default values, etc.).

Simplicity

LO displays the complex landscape of your SAP licenses and systems clearly and intuitively, you only have to follow LO's recommendations. LO's internal billing tool is designed for easy use by every employee.

Analysis/optimization of system usage

LO provides profound analysis and optimization features:

  • LO helps you to identify users which are not valid and/or not active for a specific period (based on the last login date). This data will be consolidated for decision-making to reduce the number of licensed users.
  • In addition, LO is capable to detect the indirect usage with technical users and to display user, which triggered the action.  
  • The LO engine collects license-relevant data (e.g. number of employees, memory capacity) for better understanding of your SAP Licensing which helps you to indentify cost drivers.
