SAP NetWeaver

The SAP NetWeaver technology platform facilitates the implementation, integration, and management of business processes in heterogeneous environments comprising SAP and non-SAP applications. It helps you evolve your existing infrastructure into a more cost effective platform to improve efficiency, insight, and flexibility.

We can license the functionality in SAP NetWeaver separately - including functions for composition, data management, and data information - through SAP NetWeaver packages. The package price is based on business metrics.

Licensing SAP NetWeaver for Use with SAP Business Suite

Most packages you license for SAP Business Suite include an application-specific runtime license for SAP NetWeaver. This license, called "SAP NetWeaver Foundation", entitles you to use a subset of SAP NetWeaver functionality with the licensed SAP software, as well as with your modifications to that software. To make use of the "SAP NetWeaver Foundation" license, you require the appropriate named user licenses.

Licensing SAP NetWeaver for Use with Non-SAP Software

If you would like to use SAP NetWeaver with non-SAP applications (including custom-developed and third-party software not licensed through SAP), you need the "SAP NetWeaver Foundation for Third-Party Applications" license. This covers the same functional scope as the application-specific "SAP NetWeaver Foundation" license but can be used with any non-SAP software. It also includes a license for the SAP MaxDB database.

If you use SAP NetWeaver in conjunction with "SAP NetWeaver Foundation for Third-Party Applications", you require one or two available named user licenses for development and administration purposes, specifically:

  • SAP NetWeaver Developer User
  • SAP NetWeaver Administration User

The SAP Licensing Model

SAP licensing is based on “named users”. Customers buy various types of “named users” from SAP, such as: Professional named users, Limited Professional named users, Employee named users, etc.

Each “named user” may have a real username(s) attached to it at a given date. That means that throughout the specified period of time, if you purchased, say, 50 Professional type user names from SAP, you must not exceed the maximum of 50 usernames that are defined as Professional in your system. You can, it should be noted, switch the username(s) attached to a “named user” if, for example, the user has left the company or has changed his license type.

The most-popular SAP license types

  • Professional User
  • Limited Professional User
  • Employee User

Professional User is a named user who is authorized to perform operational-related and system administration / management roles supported by the licensed software, and has also been given the rights granted under the SAP Application Limited Professional User.

Limited Professional User is a named user who is authorized to perform limited operational roles supported by the licensed software.

Employee User
is a named user who is authorized to perform the following roles supported by the licensed software, all solely for such individual’s own purpose and not for or on behalf of other individuals.

SAP Applications
  • SAP Application Developer User
  • SAP Application Business Expert User
  • SAP Application Professional User
  • SAP Application Limited Professional User
  • SAP Application Business Information User
  • SAP Application Employee User
  • SAP Application Employee Self-Service User
  • SAP Application Employee Self-Service Core User
  • SAP Application Business Expert Upgrade User
  • SAP Application Business Analytics Professional User
  • SAP Application Business Analytics Professional Upgrade User
  • SAP Application BI Limited User
  • SAP Application Standalone Business Analytics Professional User
  • SAP Application Standalone BI Limited User
  • SAP Application Business Information Viewer User

SAP Platform User

  • SAP Platform Advanced User
  • SAP Platform Extended User
  • SAP Platform Standard User

Automated tools are available that enable organizations to quickly and easily manage their SAP licenses – saving time and resources and enabling reliable budgetary planning.

The package licenses for SAP solutions for information management, EPM, GRC, and analytic vary by product. Each product is licensed through a single metric unlike products under the BI portfolio, which is offered through two metrics.

In general, if an individual uses these analytics solutions in a view-only manner, a named user license is not required; only the package license is required. When an individual requires additional rights beyond view only, SAP offers three named user licenses that may be licensed in addition to the package license:

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