Preconfigured setup and ready-to-use business processes
Economic strength with trustworthy expertise
With the rollouts of SAP software to additional locations, new functions, as well as new employees, come to SAP systems and increase the support volume. Service tickets are regularly purchased, which are processed by support every month. Time and again, adjustments are needed to exploit the complex functionality of SAP systems. The national and international sites are being developed in a targeted manner and require new functionalities. And SAP itself is still developing - it is regularly important to check new functions and implement them if necessary.
In April and May 2014, the German-speaking SAP User Group (DSAG) e. V. interviewed 389 members on the topic Maintenance/Service & Support. Key findings are: The use of Standard Support and Enterprise Support remains the same in German-speaking countries. Enterprise Support requires more information about the benefits. DSAG members are largely up-to-date with their ERP systems. Over half use the latest versions of the Enhancement Packages. DSAG Survey SAP SupportThe relationship between Standard Support and Enterprise Support is, as in previous years, almost balanced. Austria deviates here with a significantly stronger use of Enterprise Support. "In German-speaking countries, users deliberately choose a support model and stick to it. The value is stable over the last few years and the readiness to change is low," comments Andreas Oczko, DSAG's Executive Board Member Operations/Service & Support. Only two percent of the support experts surveyed rely on third-party providers. Without a maintenance contract, one percent of the participants will be paid.
