Quick Check: S/4HANA licenses

Quick Check: S/4 licences

Do you have an SAP S/4HANA license conversion in front of you, have you already completed it or are you still in the middle of such a project?

The new S/4HANA license model (Contract Conversion or RISE with SAP) is no longer measured according to actual usage, but on the basis of assigned authorizations. The essential challenge of such a project is therefore to bridge the gap between license and authorization management and to prepare optimally for a measurement based on the assigned authorizations.


SAP customers should have answers to the following questions, among others, in the course of the S/4HANA conversion:

  • What impact does my current authorization concept have on my future license type distribution?
  • What adjustments to my authorization concept are absolutely necessary to prevent an explosion in license costs under S/4HANA?
  • How do I deal with the inconsistencies and vagueness of the STAR rulebook?

Your benefit:


With our license quick check, we create transparency with regard to the conversion of the measurement logic to authorizations. By simulating the license type distributions based on both measurement logics, actual usage and assigned authorizations, we show the discrepancy resulting from the different measurement logics. Normally, a strong negative shift towards more expensive license types results from a measurement according to authorizations.


Create transparency about your risk and potential.
Fast, safe, reliable.
