About this event


2017 marked the first time SAP sued one of its customers for Indirect Access non-compliance. A year after the Diageo and ABInBev cases – how will SAP treat customers regarding Indirect Access moving forward, and how likely are you to be selected for an unfriendly audit in 2018?

This webinar, sponsored by VOQUZ will discuss preparation for SAP audits, SAP’s current position on Indirect Access, and how to quantify your risk exposure as well as an open Q&A to address any SAP concerns you may have.
