Digital Access Adoption Program (DAAP)

Making the Move to Digital Access

Introducing DAAP

The Digital Access Adoption Program was announced at SAPPHIRE Now in May 2019. The DAAP was designed in close collaboration with user groups to provide the insights needed to enable customers to make the decision to move to the Digital Access licensing model with transparency and complete confidence.


How it works:

The approach involves estimating the number of documents currently created by Indirect/Digital Access leveraging one of two methods and then evaluating which of two financial offers are best along with consideration of applicable past investments.  


Getting started:

We are happy to support you to achieve transparency of your current document use.


For implementing the SAP Passport tool, please refer to the technical requirements summarized in the Central Technical Guidelines (customers only). If you need help implementing the necessary Support Packages you can leverage different support offerings available for your specific maintenance agreement. For technical issues with the Passport, please report an incident through the SAP One Support Launchpad, using component CA-GTF-DA.


In case you want to leverage an evaluation note to identify the approximate # of documents, please visit our Digital Access Evaluation Service site (customers only)


For licensing, legal and compliance questions please approach your SAP Account Executive.

DAAP Extension Testimonials

User Groups


 “ASUG has maintained all along that it’s critical for customers to have a clear picture of their licensing and indirect-access circumstances, so that they can remain compliant, mitigate risks, and plan their futures. Continuation of DAAP should help customers see the path forward so they can reduce the uncertainties related to licensing and innovate without hesitation.”

Geoff Scott, CEO, Americas’ SAP Users’ Group (ASUG)


User Groups


 “We always said that the Digital Access Adoption Program is a journey for the customers, not a weekend trip only. The customers have to check the financial implications with care, and that takes time. Therefore, it is the right approach for the SAP customers and the user groups as their voice, that the Digital Access Adoption Program has been extended until end of 2021. It rewards our combined efforts and gives the customers a great way forward and planning security in their digital transformation, especially in this extraordinary time.”

Andreas Oczko, Board Member Operations/Service & Support; German-Speaking SAP User Group (DSAG)
