With SAP's early success in two widely-publicized lawsuits involving Indirect Access, many SAP customers have been left feeling anxious as to how they would fare should they face an audit now that the legal precedent for non-compliance has been set. Reassurances from SAP CEO Bill McDermott at last year's Sapphire Now conference did little to assuage those fears.
SAP's license model is complex, especially when it comes to allowing homegrown, web or third-party applications that access or manipulate SAP data...or users who get access to SAP data through other applications. Unfortunately, many CIOs think they are properly licensed and in compliance with their SAP software maintenance agreements...until they get the audit notifications.
The speakers cover:
- Why Diageo lost the case and how the court ruling was decided
- How audits can be used to drive innovation and road map clarity (and why you should not be afraid of them)
- Who you should engage during the audit process so you make the right decisions every step of the way
This is the fastest way for you to learn the 5 ways to avoid surprises with SAP's Indirect Access and control your destiny.
