Please clarify "Decision Service Asset Packages"

Pricing of DSM is based on so-called "Decision Service Asset Packages" defined as a collection of 25 decision service assets. I am looking for a practical example to understand how many packages to purchase. For example. I have estimated the following:

  • 5 Decision services
  • 5 Rulesets
  • 50 Rules
  • 50 Expressions (loops, decision tables, formulas, DB lookup, etc)
  • 15 Actions

Counting up all these components we have 125 objects.

Does this mean that I have to purchase 5 asset packages to be able to deploy my services using DSM?

Hi Nicholas,

your calculation of the assets is correct from my point of view. However, as you stated, you estimated the overall objects. So the number could change at some point in time even without changing the business requirements (e. g. due to refactoring). So the upfront approach of SAP Decision Service Management does not work for customers building a new application.

As a consequence, I would heavily recommend to get in touch with you SAP sales representative and discuss the situation before ordering the assets from your estimation. From my experience SAP is quite flexible when it comes to this situation and reacts accordingly with respect to the pricing.

Best regards,

Christian
