Holistic Customer Care
The SAP Standard Support offer for On-Premise solutions will continue to exist. Users can continue to purchase basic support services for SAP solutions and maintain system operations and availability. SAP Enterprise Support continues to be the SAP-recommended support level for customers moving to SAP Cloud powered by SAP HANA, which guarantees SAP innovation and reliability in hybrid scenarios.
SAP also wants to facilitate the transition to SAP Cloud powered by SAP HANA for users. SAP assures users that they can focus on the real business and "leave the orchestration of continuous processes to the provider.".
SAP SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE
The first stage of our customer service process involves receiving all support requests from users. This first point of contact is able to solve simple problems using the contrimo Knowledge Base. It also questions, evaluates, and prioritises more complex requests to resolve the issue more quickly and efficiently at a higher level of support.
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.
