When do you need SAP contract negotiation support?

Business change can affect licensing, which ultimately leads to negotiations with SAP. This can be difficult to manage, especially if it is not your sole responsibility.

We have extensive experience negotiating with SAP, meaning we know exactly what you need to do, and can provide 100% independent advice.

Most JNC clients approach us when they are anticipating change or contract renewals. We can support with both new and ongoing contract negotiations.

Our consultants:

  • Identify all cost saving opportunities that are available to your organization
  • Map out and mitigate against license compliance risk
  • Future-proof your agreement, ensuring that your current needs, as well as your needs in the short, medium and long terms are considered
  • Give you more control over your negotiation
  • Ensure that your SAP contracts are written in your best interests

Contract Transformation

Many SAP customers have long-standing relationships with SAP, potentially lasting decades. This can lead to complicated contractual structures, and the terms you originally signed up to may not work for your organization’s modern needs.

Our expert consultants can help transform your contracts to better align with your business’ goals.

Cost Optimization

Helping you reduce current spend with SAP or make better use of surplus licenses. We’ll conduct a deep analysis of your SAP environment, identifying inefficiencies and helping you cut down on unnecessary licenses.

Mergers, Acquisitions & Divestment

SAP licensing is often affected during mergers, acquisitions and divestments, which often leads to over- or under-licencing; contractual structures can also become much more complicated as a result.

We’ll assess your license position either during the M&A process, before or after divestment, helping to ensure compliance, which is especially important as many organizations become a target for SAP license audits following an M&A.
