Hello Experts,
I have a few queries regarding SAP Business ByDesign. It would be grateful, if you could clarify on the same.

Licensing & Subscription :
1. We are aware of the Cloud Subscription model, and know that there is a Public edition and private edition for ByD. The below URL is the source for the information we have :

The Public edition is understandable. However, what we don't understand is the Subscription model of Private Edition. SAP says, a minimum of 10 tenants 200 Users are to be bought. Please explain the Need to mandate the customer to purchase a minimum of 10 tenants under the private edition. Why/When would a customer need 10 tenants.

2. We understand the pricing model for Public Edition. There is a basic fee for the tenant and apart from that user licenses have to be bought. However, the pricing for the Private edition is unclear. We know that there is a basic fee that is mandatory. Do we have to purchase user licenses as well on top of the Private edition fee ?

Implementation and positioning :

3. Explain the implementation methodology that should be followed for ByDesign. Is the Launch / Active methodology that we follow for other cloud implementations such as SAP Cloud for Customer? Also please explain the timeline followed/ recommended and how efforts are to be estimated for a full blown standard implementation of ByD.

4. How can we pitch a support project ByD. What is the usual duration for such support projects of ByD.

Kindly get in touch with your account executive. Your AE should be able to make you understand about the pricing and licensing strategies.
