Focused Build and Focused Insights are two out-of-the box turnkey solutions based on SAP Solution Manager – made for immediate consumption and available for all customers. They are ready-to-run, highly integrated, preconfigured, and deliver additional features and all related training content.
Recently, customer demand for Focused Build and Focused Insights for SAP Solution Manager has rapidly increased. More and more customers are using Focused Build to manage their large and agile innovation projects (such as SAP S/4HANA implementations), and Focused Insights to build and distribute powerful dashboards to gain control and transparency for their IT processes without programming.
Due to the increased demand, SAP has decided to make it easier for our customers to take advantage of these two powerful turnkey solutions for SAP Solution Manager!
Beginning on January 1, 2020, all SAP customers will receive Focused Build and Focused Insights for SAP Solution Manager as part of their support contract.* It will no longer be necessary to purchase licenses for these solutions from the SAP Store.
Note: This announcement does not apply to Focused Run for SAP Solution Manager, which will continue to require separate licensing.
As part of the transition process leading up to January 1, 2020, SAP will provide flexible subscriptions and moderate discounts for Focused Build and Focused Insights. The discount amount will depend the date you subscribe for these solutions in 2019, according to the following rates:
- Q1 2019: 20% discount
- Q2 2019: 40% discount
- Q3 2019: 60% discount
- Q4 2019: 80% discount
Here is an example of how the discounted rates could apply.
A customer wishes to enable 20 new Focused Build users in Q2 2019: The customer will purchase 20 user licenses from the SAP Store, but at the Q2 discounted rate of 40%.
An existing customer who has already purchased 20 users on July 1, 2018 (Q3 2018) but needs to renew them by Q3 2019: Since SAP has canceled subscription renewal in 2019, this existing customer will purchase 20 licenses again for 2019, but at the Q3 discount rate of 60%.
