SAP sets Fiori free

Responds to user demand for licensing simplicity.

SAP has announced an effort to simplify its operations – including its approach to licensing – as a means of appeasing frustrated customers.

To demonstrate SAP’s new “simplified pricing model”, CEO Bill McDermott announced at the company’s annual conference in Orlando that it will make the Fiori UX product and SAP Personas free when bundled with a software contract. These features have previously incurred additional licence fees.

SAP’s pricing structure has been the bug bear of users for some time. In 2012 a survey of the UK and Ireland SAP user group found that 95 percent thought it was too complex and 88 percent wanted more price transparency.

At the time Australian CIOs indicated to iTnews they shared the same concerns.

Today’s announcement has been welcomed by the SAP Australia User Group.

The SAUG Executive Network said it endorsed the released of Fiori intially as “a real improvement for users of the SAP Business Suite”.

“At the same time, SUGEN was disappointed that Fiori was licensed separately. In SUGEN’s opinion Fiori is a set of enhancements in the user interface that should be covered by the maintenance fees customers pay to SAP.”
