Walldorf, 10.01.2013 - SAP has today issued a press release on the launch of SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA.
Owing to the good collaboration between DSAG and SAP, DSAG (the German-speaking SAP User Group) was able to influence innovations and the pricing model of SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. Thus the DSAG acted once more as trusted advisor for their members.
Andreas Oczko, member of the board of DSAG: "We pushed for a pricing model which is based on the customer's added value. This means that SAP customers must now upgrade only those licenses which actually access the HANA database and they do not have to upgrade the entire license agreement. As far as licensing costs are concerned, the database for the Business Suite on HANA will now cost existing SAP customers exactly the same as the conventional databases. This will give each individual customer the chance to use in-memory technology at a reasonable price.”
Marco Lenck, chairman of the board of DSAG: "SAP has adopted our proposals to setup the pricing model based on contract value and not on main memory usage. Due to the conventionally focused pricing, existing customers now have easy access to innovations in the HANA environment. SAP has responded customer-oriented to the core requirement of the DSAG. We believe that this will lead to a strong push in the adoption of the new technology."
