Cloud licenses

Hi Folks,

If I'm accessing a webdynpro application which is available through the internet, what are the advantages of putting the webdynpro on the cloud?

The user or customer needs a SAP user license to gain access to the backend for their specific data using webdynpro. If they use a cloud environment to gain access to the same backend, they still have to log in using a SAP user license and now have to add charges for using the cloud resources. Is this true?

    Hi Bruce,

    Expose a system in the cloud, for example with AWS, lets your organization expand infrastructure with a lower tco because there's no initial expenses / invest to prepare a complex ABAP or JAVA stack. It also lets you resize your system depending on your business requirements. For example SAP on AWS, requires maintenance of SPs / Patches because it's a "hosted SAP" in fact. If your organization wants to have a full cloud SAP system without any BASIS task, you must use SAP Business By Design as a complete SAP cloud solution but you will lose the full flexibility of a hosted or on-premise system.

    I think ,if you move your existing system to cloud, there won't be any extra user license charges. Let me explain, if it's NW Java Stack, you could configure your user data source as ABAP to user your ECC business users. But this is the same problem that is produced with a NW JAVA on-demand. You must reconsider on every new system, user licenses with or without cloud architecture.

    Kind regards
