License Compliance Interview

In a License Compliance Interview the Global License Audit & Compliance (GLAC) team engages the customer in a collaborative business process discussion to achieve a common understanding of the customer's “Use” of SAP software mostly in relation to “Use” via third party applications or interfaces.

The service is designed to determine compliance with license terms without recourse to a technical measurement and can be performed standalone or connected with a License Audit Measurement Service.

As a structured and transparent interview format, dedicated GLAC colleagues deliver the service jointly with the customer focusing on specific customer business scenarios.
