We already offer AI- and Machine Learning-based support tools such as Automatic Translation to automatically translate SAP Notes and SAP Knowledge Base Articles. Built-in support and the digital support assistant will also become an integral part for our users. Customers want seamless support no matter where and on which device, and no matter what "channel". The intelligent merging of all channels, including mobile devices and social media, will give customers multiple ways to access support. Our vision is to have omnichannel access to our support, and to continue to develop new tools and pioneering solutions in co-innovation with our customers. Support will become more proactive and identify critical situations at an early stage - support will be delivered to the customer, not vice versa. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will further improve and simplify the support experience for customers, making the answers both faster and better. Intelligent ALM tools will provide fully automatic performance. We are constantly on the ball - our customers can expect a lot of innovation in SAP support in the future.
This allows us to deal with the actual incident with a lower priority structure, so that we can use the right skills and expertise to achieve a lasting solution. Support includes in particular: Incident Handling - Urgent assistance with blocking issues / Advanced questions from key users & business process managers / Changes & fixes - business critical developments.
Proactive monitoring and notification
In the working group "CCC/Service & Support", SAP customers, among others, have joined forces to establish a Customer Competence Centre (CCC) or a Customer COE (Centre of Expertise) in the more recent term, on the basis of contractual obligations. The CCC or CCOE is an organisational unit within the company that is responsible for supporting efficient implementations, expansion, and maintenance and quality of business processes and systems related to SAP software. A focus area "Service & Support" is included as part of the classic CCC topics with the working group. In order to provide a discussion platform for SAP Service and Support to customers who do not want/need to implement a CCC, the former AK "CCC" was explicitly expanded to include the term "Service and Support" in the naming.
Next, you will work with a consultant to determine support levels, hourly service windows, and maximum response times (SLAs). In this way, it is you who design our offer to tailor it entirely to your company, not the other way around.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems", a tool is available to help your SAP support with troubleshooting.
As a result, tickets are often misdirected.
Each ticket created in this way is automatically enriched with runtime information and screenshots, so that the supporters can start editing directly.
