In April and May 2014, the German-speaking SAP User Group (DSAG) e. V. interviewed 389 members on the topic Maintenance/Service & Support. Key findings are: The use of Standard Support and Enterprise Support remains the same in German-speaking countries. Enterprise Support requires more information about the benefits. DSAG members are largely up-to-date with their ERP systems. Over half use the latest versions of the Enhancement Packages. DSAG Survey SAP SupportThe relationship between Standard Support and Enterprise Support is, as in previous years, almost balanced. Austria deviates here with a significantly stronger use of Enterprise Support. "In German-speaking countries, users deliberately choose a support model and stick to it. The value is stable over the last few years and the readiness to change is low," comments Andreas Oczko, DSAG's Executive Board Member Operations/Service & Support. Only two percent of the support experts surveyed rely on third-party providers. Without a maintenance contract, one percent of the participants will be paid.
While Application Management Services is focused on the SAP system and the process optimisation in the ERP system, SAP Support addresses sudden bugs or problems and resolves them immediately. The support team is the first and direct contact of your employees and can take care of the solution of the error that occurred immediately. The AMS team then determines whether this error occurred only once or whether the process in the SAP system should be generally adjusted. Agents respond to customer requests for defined Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
The concept of SAP MaxAttention
Supporting end users is a difficult task, especially if you are an SME. You may not have the necessary manpower or internal skills to provide solutions to all potential problems. In addition, constantly changing business requirements put IT departments under constant pressure to meet quality, predictability, and responsiveness requirements. We provide first-level support and work directly with your end users to continue maintenance and user support if you do not want to build an internal SAP support capability. Or we can add second-level support to your internal helpdesk and complement your existing team for complex problem solving and improvement.
