With CodeMeter, Wibu-Systems delivers a secure and user-friendly solution to improve SAP Entitlement Management for administering entitlements, reinforcing its commitment to enabling software businesses for a more successful data-driven economy.

FREMONT, CA: Wibu-Systems recently announced that it is combining its entitlement and license management competencies to authorize novel business models in the digital economy. Wibu-Systems, an SAP silver partner and a pioneer for software protection, security, and licensing, brings decades of experience in cutting-edge IT solutions.

With CodeMeter, Wibu-Systems delivers a secure and user-friendly solution to improve SAP Entitlement Management for administering entitlements, reinforcing its commitment to enabling software businesses for a more successful data-driven economy.Initially released in 2018, SAP Entitlement Management was projected as a software-as-a-service designed to empower avant-garde business models with a lean and efficient entitlement management process.

Stefan Bamberg, Senior Key Account and Partner Manager, Wibu-Systems, who sees a joint mission with SAP, says, "25 miles lie between our headquarters, but I see our companies being much closer still with our commitment to enabling software and data-driven businesses. SAP Entitlement Management and CodeMeter work hand-in-glove to do just that, with secure and efficiently managed access to invaluable digital assets and resources."

With SAP Entitlement Management united with an ERP system like SAP S/4HANA, companies can field both conventional and innovative business models, such as subscription or pay-per-use products. SAP Entitlement Management translates orders received via their ERP systems into entitlements with the ease of an automated process and the transparency of complete lifecycle management and centralized repository solution that comes with several services, analysis, and reporting tools on board. With multitenant cloud placement and a streamlined technology capable of handling even vast amounts of orders and entitlements, the entire process works competently in the background for greater end-user satisfaction.

For a fully rounded and robustly protected experience, the control over entitlements provided by SAP Entitlements Management is couched in the proven and popular CodeMeter technology. Wibu-Systems' cloud-based license management solution is combined with SAP processes to deliver end-to-end support from sales over fulfillment to billing and revenue recognition.

When the firm using the combined solution receives an order for one of its products, SAP Entitlement Management sends the order details to CodeMeter License Central, where a ticket is produced to activate the client device's actual technical license. The ticket is fed back through SAP Entitlement Management and the company's ERP system and on to the user. All CodeMeters license container types, from physical dongles to software and cloud containers, are reinforced, giving the vendor and their end-users full freedom of choice over the right level of flexibility and security for their needs. Once activated, the online and offline competencies of CodeMeter License Central take care of the often-burdensome administrative tasks, such as license checks and updates in the field, for an even more user-friendly experience.
