SAP for Me

What is SAP for Me?

SAP is making strides to simplify and harmonize the support experience by reducing the number of digital touch points. SAP for Me is the new digital platform that enables our customers and partners to find the information they need, and use a variety of self-service features to easily request support and resolve issues. SAP for Me is free, and uses your existing SAP ID.

With SAP for Me, you can:

  • Engage with support from SAP through a single entry point
  • Get a holistic view of your licenses, orders, and consumption status.
  • Perform self-services (e.g. cloud system provisioning)
  • Additional features will continue to be integrated

Transition from SAP ONE Support Launchpad to SAP for Me

To ensure a smooth transition, SAP ONE Support Launchpad and SAP for Me are running in parallel.

In Q1/2022, a promotional banner was published in the SAP ONE Support Launchpad.

In Q2/2022, all support applications will be integrated into SAP for Me and a pop-up message in the SAP ONE Support Launchpad will allow users to navigate to SAP for Me.

In Q3/2022, we will remove the SAP ONE Support Launchpad and customers and partners will only use SAP for Me. If users access the SAP ONE Support Launchpad website, they will be automatically redirected to SAP for Me.

Terminology Change: Incidents are now Cases

Following the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standard, SAP has changed the terminology for getting technical support from "Incident" to "Case" in SAP for Me.

Cases identify a question or issue and tracks the activities related to resolving it. Cases are different from service requests, which are standardized requests from end users for specific functions (e.g. additional service capacity, additional backup) using a predefined service catalog.

  • Home Page
