New Publication: “SAP Enterprise Support: ASAP to Run SAP”

Gerhard Oswald is a member of the SAP Executive Board, while Uwe Hommel is head of SAP Active Global Support. And in their exploration of SAP Enterprise Support, readers find practical information for real-life situations.

SAP Enterprise Support pledges stable operations for complex landscapes, proactive risk reduction, long-term protection of investment, and sustained innovativeness.

But what does this actually mean? What benefits can companies gain from SAP Enterprise Support on a day-to-day basis? How does SAP support its customers in evolving their business processes? You’ll find the answers to these questions and many more – as well as a multitude of practical tips – in the book “SAP Enterprise Support: ASAP to Run SAP.” The authors examine the following topics:

  • What services are included in SAP Enterprise Support and how do customers stand to benefit from them?
  • Why did SAP develop the new support model?
  • How does SAP help companies to set up a central Customer Center of Expertise and internal quality management for business and IT processes?
  • What different support offerings does SAP provide for partner solutions?
  • An overview of all tools and services for upgrades

Furthermore, readers can discover how to implement innovations during live operation – by controlled activation of functions delivered in SAP enhancement packages with the Switch Framework. The book rounds off with a detailed description of the services and all continuous quality checks provided by SAP.
