Where is the app in SAP ONE Support Launchpad?
Focus on core competencies and innovation
With "Next-Generation Support", SAP promises its customers self-service components, digital interaction with support in real time, a particularly good digital customer experience, for example through build-in support with the help of SAP CoPilot, and the use of innovations such as AI and Machine Learning. Objective: Enquiries should be answered in real-time, as far as possible, as a prerequisite for real-time business models. At the DSAG Annual Congress 2018, I wanted to know from Andreas Heckmann, Head of SAP Support, what support services SAP customers will need in the future, how SAP will support end-to-end digital processes in hybrid systems, where the differences between ECC and SAP S/4HANA support requests lie, and what impact innovations (machine learning, AI, predictive analytics, ...) have on SAP support.
In addition to the standard service, we carry out a thorough analysis and evaluation of all SAP products that are not measured via USMM and also offer the possibility to examine interfaces that are not derived from SAP and that are specifically developed for the customer. The result is a holistic view of the environment, with all the licencing risks and opportunities, with a focus on the various licencing options for Indirect Access.
SAP IT SUPPORT SIGNIFICANTLY RELIEVABLE BY AI
Today, business-critical processes are happening more and more in real time. Consequently, we have decided to take fundamentally new paths: We therefore also offer real-time support, in direct interaction with our support experts, via chat or phone. Feedback on classic messages can already be received by customers in real time as SMS directly to their mobile phone. Customers prefer to help with questions directly in the application they use. We therefore integrate support directly into our products with Built-in Support.
Of course: The full functionality of SAP Landscape Management and ALM is only possible with SAP Solution Manager. And tools such as the Maintenance Planner and the Early Watch Alert (EWA) require up-to-date landscape data - if not provided by an SAP Solution Manager, then manually transmitted in an emergency.
The "Shortcut for SAP Systems" tool is an excellent tool for handling many tasks in SAP Support more easily and quickly.
"The pleasant contact, the extensive know-how of the Salt consultants and also the wide module support convinced us".
"It will now be even easier for our customers to combine applications and services in the public cloud with managed services in the private cloud and on-premise technology to deliver better and faster results.".
