    SAP Indirect Access Licensing

      How are you dealing with SAP's position on indirect licensing?

       

      When we received our quote for the OTC indirect access licenses we were blown away. The licensing required to get permission to import orders/payments from a third-party system was 4x more than the original purchase price for SAP.

       

      We were told that if we implemented Hybris, we would not need to purchase any indirect access licenses.

       

      This cannot possibly be appropriate.

       

      Here are a few articles that echo my concerns:
