Navigating the new era of SAP S/4HANA’s permission-based licensing presents a formidable challenge. Fortunately, FirstCall Consulting, in collaboration with Xiting, offers a dynamic solution with the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite (XAMS), a tool designed to help businesses adeptly manage the intricacies of these changes.
