SAP, the German software giant, recently announced a price hike in its software products and services, much to the disappointment of its user base. This comes at a time when businesses are already grappling with rising input costs, slowing sales forecasts, and concerns about continued economic headwinds.

As reported by The Register, SAP customers are not happy with this decision as it comes at a time when many are already struggling with their budgets. Many businesses are experiencing financial challenges, and SAP's decision to raise prices will only add to their burden.

This move is seen by many as bad form on the part of SAP, and it has left many of its customers feeling frustrated and let down. In light of this development, it is important for SAP customers to consider price benchmarking their SAP agreements with a reliable third-party provider like NET(net).
