SAP for Me
At the beginning of January 2020, the new support backbone became mandatory. Anyone who is unsure whether the SAP support connection is running properly does not have to rely on their own solution manager alone. The new support launchpad extension, "Status of Support Connectivity," provides an overview.
Here's an example we had about one or two years ago. A larger company with a fairly large SAP user base had 2 experts in support alone. SAP experts, who tend to be expensive and have done nothing but route the incoming tickets to the right place so IT support could get involved. We automated this process by using AI. Not their semantic skills, not as a chatbot, but their analytical skills to learn from historical tickets that used to arrive and were misdirected and how they were resolved. So within a few days, we were able to build up this AI to the point where it could fully adopt the classification of the tickets. Now, the artificial intelligence that came out of this rich information that came out of the SAP world was able to pass these tickets on to the right person, and in some cases even work out solutions.
Rapid stabilisation of high performance solutions
Users who want to use SAP solutions in the cloud and SAP's HANA Cloud in addition to on-premise solutions will now receive a new offer from Walldorf. This should also reduce the complexity of support for users at the same cost.
We already offer AI- and Machine Learning-based support tools such as Automatic Translation to automatically translate SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles. Built-in support and the digital support assistant will also become an integral part for our users. Customers want seamless support no matter where and on which device, and no matter what "channel". The intelligent merging of all channels, including mobile devices and social media, will give customers multiple ways to access support. Our vision is to have omnichannel access to our support, and to continue to develop new tools and pioneering solutions in co-innovation with our customers. Support will become more proactive and identify critical situations at an early stage - support will be delivered to the customer, not vice versa. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will further improve and simplify the support experience for customers, making the answers both faster and better. Intelligent ALM tools will provide fully automatic performance. We are constantly on the ball - our customers can expect a lot of innovation in SAP support in the future.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems", a tool is available to help your SAP support with troubleshooting.
In addition, SAP wants to optimise and extend support through new and innovative cooperation models.
In the survey, our customers were repeatedly satisfied with our services.
