Integrated Launch Activities
Big changes cast their shadow: What next year will bring
SAP emphasises that SAP ONE support is not a separate support offering and therefore does not mean additional costs for users. SAP ONE support is provided via SAP Enterprise Support. SAP ONE Support complements SAP Enterprise Support and SAP already provides a comparable level of support for its two SAP subsidiaries, SuccessFactors and Ariba.
Through the SAP ONE Support Launchpad, customers can find the status of support connectivity in the My Landscape application. The Status of Support Connectivity app displays the data collection status for the customer's on-premise landscape.
Dedicated Support Teams
The SAP Standard Support offering remains in place for on-premise solutions, providing basic support services for SAP solutions and maintaining system operations and availability. For customers switching to SAP Cloud powered by SAP HANA, SAP recommends SAP Enterprise Support. This guarantees innovation and reliability in hybrid scenarios. One Support is implemented step by step. The SAP ONE support enhancements are designed to deliver SAP 2014 and beyond in several steps. A coordinated and integrated incident management process and support for mission-critical processes for a customer's complete solution, including hybrid scenarios and landscapes, are currently available.
The SAP Support Portal provides customers and partners with support-related news and features, as well as help and context for support applications, services and offerings. This allows you to access core tasks, critical updates, and all SAP Live Support channels anytime, anywhere, and from any device.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful for SAP support.
"As more companies combine on-premise systems and cloud programmes in hybrid IT environments, controlling and coordinating support for different solutions can significantly increase the complexity of IT operations," said Elaina Stergiades of IDC.
"By continuing to expand the support programme through SAP ONE Support, we can reduce complexity and provide the flexibility and simplicity of SAP Cloud that is tailored to the individual needs of our customers," explains Gerhard Oswald, member of the Board of Management of SAP AG and Head of the Scale, Quality & Support Executive Board.
