About ASUG’s Licensing Webcast Series

On April 10, SAP announced a new pricing model designed to address the challenges associated with indirect access, also known as indirect use. SAP also introduced related adjustments to its sales and audit practices. Join us for our series of 20-minute webcasts to get up to speed on these changes.


Indirect and Direct Use Definitions

When it comes to understanding exactly what is indirect access and what SAP entitlements you’re licensed for, it’s complicated. Geoff Scott, CEO of ASUG, and Ron Gilson, CIO of Johnsonville Sausage, get into the definitions that every SAP customer should understand about direct use, indirect use, and static read scenarios. It all starts with knowing how data is getting into your SAP systems, as well as whether it’s coming from an SAP or third-party solution. We’ll help you ask the right questions so you can get the answers you need within your business.
