With over 65,000 large enterprises relying on SAP to run their businesses, you would expect more companies to have rock solid handles on their SAP relationships. Annual audits, complex agreements and an evolving SAP ecosystem continue to be significant and costly challenges for SAP customers. In addition, the results of the SAP v. Diageo “indirect use” case provide enough cause for concern whereby executives need to assess the state of their SAP usage models, the vendor relationship, and potential financial risk.
