A coordinating, unified management team for all SAP services
SAP Base Services
With "Next-Generation Support", SAP promises its customers self-service components, digital interaction with support in real time, a particularly good digital customer experience, for example through build-in support with the help of SAP CoPilot, and the use of innovations such as AI and Machine Learning. Objective: Enquiries should be answered in real-time, as far as possible, as a prerequisite for real-time business models. At the DSAG Annual Congress 2018, I wanted to know from Andreas Heckmann, Head of SAP Support, what support services SAP customers will need in the future, how SAP will support end-to-end digital processes in hybrid systems, where the differences between ECC and SAP S/4HANA support requests lie, and what impact innovations (machine learning, AI, predictive analytics, ...) have on SAP support.
If a failure occurs, we commit to fix it or find a temporary solution within a strict timeframe defined by the SLA. With critical functions of the system this can even be 4 hours!
Knowledge of how to integrate your current landscape with SAP Business Technology Platform
With this service we will do everything for you. We design, create and implement proactive end-to-end processes to manage the procurement, utilisation, measurement, and optimisation of your entire SAP landscape. There are no active tasks left for you. You also benefit from a high cost savings.
The opportunities offered to us and our customers by these new technologies are still in their infancy. We expect a lot to happen in this area in the next few years. We're already showing where the journey is with our Built-in Support today. Support is integrated into the product via SAP CoPilot. Artificial intelligence ensures that the customer can talk to the system - keyword Conversational AI. In the background, the Digital Support Assistant uses the system context and other data to provide quick answers to technical customer questions. In the future, some questions will not even be asked, because the customer in the application already gets the necessary support and hints through his digital assistant to avoid possible problems. For SAP S4/HANA Cloud applications, we have been offering build-in support since this year's SAPPHIRE and are now expanding the range of services. We have already identified a number of scenarios where artificial intelligence can add significant value. Incident Solution Matching, a machine learning-based search for solutions, is already in operation within SAP and will soon be available to customers.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" simplifies SAP support tasks and adds to the standard's missing functions.
Today, many human resources companies are still working with stacks of files and outdated systems.
However, SAP ONE Support only complements the basic offering of Enterprise Support.
