Video: Output Management’s Vital Role for SAP Customers
Alex Soto, Editor, SAPinsider
When an SAP customer with hundreds of SAP systems and thousands of printers in different parts of the world wants to address SAP infrastructure complexity and reduce costs, centralized output management can help.
Unfortunately for many organizations, output management is typically an afterthought. That is until problems arise, according to Leo Kaltenhauser, Director EMEA Central, LRS.
The consequences of not discussing output management in digital transformation conversations include increased complexity in SAP infrastructures, higher operational costs, and business interruptions that impact revenue.
This is why SAP customers need to consider the complexity in managing business-critical outputs with SAP solutions such as SAP S/4HANA, especially in large organizations, according to Kaltenhauser.
Consider an organization involved in international trading. The ability to provide authenticated documentation of shipped materials at various ports of entry worldwide is vital to comply with regulatory requirements; otherwise, the organization may face costly fines and delays in getting products out to customers.
