BOBJ Licensing

Hello Gurus,

I went through this document "Licensing SAP® Software - A Guide for Buyers" (Please open Google and type "Licensing SAP Software". The first link gives you this pdf).

Please note the below pointer from this guide (Chapter 2 - section LICENSING ANALYTICS SOLUTIONS FROM SAP) -

Accessing the functionality of analytics solutions from SAP typically requires package licenses as well as named user licenses (NULs).

The package license for SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions is available through two metrics:

  • concurrent users
  • Named users

The Named User Licenses "NULs" can be of the following types -

  • “SAP Business Expert User”
  • “SAP Business Analytics Professional User”
  • “SAP Business Intelligence (BI) Limited User”

I saw at a client place where they only had concurrent users (Package License) and no NULs. Is this client in violation? Also, please refer to the SAP Note - 1285639.

Awaiting response on this.

Thanks & Regards,

    answering License Questions is always a bit "challenging".

    I would recommend you contact the SAP Sales Rep. who is responsible for the Customer with this Question.
