In case of support requests for SAP standard functions, it is sometimes necessary to consult with SAP solution developers. Other requests still require access to the solution's backend. In this third escalation stage, our specialists consult SAP Support. Adjustments / developments on the part of SAP are initiated - always with the aim of fixing the malfunction as quickly as possible.
2nd Level Support
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.
Almost a fifth of them were positive or neutral about the more "expensive" support model Enterprise Support. A total of 42% of those surveyed see this as a low or no added value. Interestingly, almost 40 percent did not say anything about this topic. Nevertheless, a positive trend is emerging. In a similar survey last year, nearly three-quarters of the participants said they had little or no added value to Enterprise Support. "The benefits of Enterprise Support, such as free services, have not yet been widely publicised by customers. The Enterprise Support Academy launched by SAP, which is an educational institution, is promising, but should receive even more attention," concludes Andreas Oczko. Nevertheless, SAP is still calling for standard support to remain in focus. The performance of this support model, which is also paid a significant maintenance rate, should not only include a minimum of service levels. We need to create more transparency about what service is included in which support contract. The information day is free of charge for SAP customers, it presents topics around enterprise support. The target group is customers who have an Enterprise Support Maintenance Agreement or are interested in it.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and faster to complete many SAP support tasks.
In order to continue to communicate with the backbone and to use the services of SAP, it is necessary to move to this new infrastructure by January 2020.
