A good SAP audit defense is not just advised but absolutely essential. SAP, like all software vendors, are fiercely protective of their intellectual property. Understandably so as they spend billions of Euros each year on research and development creating market leading products.
Over the past decade auditing has become a key strategic practice of SAP. Auditing can account for as much as 40% of SAP’s revenues in any given year and this has led to audit teams at SAP being set aggressive sales targets.
When combined with the poorly scripted and ambiguous contractual terminology in their license agreements SAP customers can often find themselves being asked for large, unplanned settlement figures for identified non-compliance.
