Support levels
Edenhouse provide support for all SAP products for both technical and functional support. Our support model is time based with time called off in 30 minute increments against an agreed number of days with each day being 7.5 hours. All of our UK based support consultants are senior level with an average of 16 years’ experience across the teams and so we have one charging rate for all consultants as well as a management fee depending on the size and scale of the required model - such as if additional services are request like out of hours support or system monitoring. A named account director and named service delivery manager are assigned to all of our support accounts. Both these individuals perform roadmap planning, and monthly reviews with each of our customers whilst also ensure SLA compliance.
Support available to third parties

Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
SAP Sales Cloud is a self-documenting solution with extensive in-built help, community forums, blogs, wiki entries, SAP YouTube channel for guidance videos, as well as online user guides and administrator guides. Dedicated learning channels https://enable.cx.sap.com/

A typical implementation will not require additional user documentation, but will include on-site "train the trainer" sessions to key users who coordinate and delivery training to the user base. However, at customer request training can be provided to end users and additional documentation can be provided.

SAP currently provides 168 Web Service APIs to enable the standard integration of on-premise, cloud-based, and third-party solutions with SAP Hybris Cloud. These services are listed at the following URL along with all associated documentation, and are too numerous to list here - http://help-legacy.sap.com/saphelp_sapcloudforcustomer/en/PUBLISHING/IntegrationServices.html. Sandbox testing is via the customer's test tenant provision, included as standard in the customer agreement with SAP.

Customisation available
Description of customisation
User interface can be corporately branded by an administrator.
Role-based authorisations determine the screen layouts, views and access for each user, as defined by an administrator.
Fields, screens, components and objects can be extended (standard)and created (bespoke) by a developer using the software development kit (SDK) based on Visual Studio shell.
New fields can be created, existing fields can be relabelled and hidden by an administrator or authorised key user.
Administrators and/or key user can create data sources, reports, report views and selections based on standard and bespoke business objects.
An administrator or a developer can create and amend PDF output documents using a plug-in for Adobe LiveCycle Designer.
User interface can be personalised by end users, such as resizing and reordering results columns, saving search queries and setting these as the default query for a particular view.
End users may add additional fields to results lists and so on through personalisation, where the fields have been made available by an administrator


Independence of resources
Combined with virtualisation, decoupling hardware from the operating system and applications, multi-tenancy occurs when many customers are served on one instance. Virtual machines (VMs) share the hardware environment, and one system can accommodate more than 100 tenants. Using adaptive computing, virtual machines are not shut down to be rescaled or updated, and changes can be made while they are running applications, with minimal downtimes. To enable this, a new VM is prepared and the application is simply “moved” to the new VM. Moving and rescaling VMs dynamically enables resource independence from the demands of other customers using the same service.

Guaranteed availability
System availability SLA is 99.5% system availability during each calendar month for production versions.

Credits are 2% of Monthly Subscription Fees for each 1% below 99.5% System Availability, not to exceed 100% of Monthly Subscription Fees
Approach to resilience
SAP data centres have the following features to ensure continuity of service:
* Redundant additional power network in case of power outage
* Backup batteries and generators
* Redundant additional coolant systems in case of coolant system failure
* Redundant additional internet connection to guarantee connectivity
* Data stored in backup location to save-guard against natural disasters and malicious attacks
Outage reporting
Where there is a service outage, all affected customers will receive email updates from SAP to their nominated IT representative for each of their affected systems. Details included are the system affected, the date/time of the incident start and when it was resolved, a description of the original issue, details of the root cause, problem resolution and corrective action being taken to prevent repeat occurrences.

A public dashboard is also available at https://wiki.hybris.com/display/c4crelease/Service+Availability which shows the current status of the SAP data centres specifically for Hybris Cloud (Germany, USA, Australia, China) along with service statuses for print, email, network and general availability services. A data centre specific history of recent issues is also displayed.

Identity and authentication

User authentication needed
User authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Public key authentication (including by TLS client certificate)
  • Dedicated link (for example VPN)
  • Username or password
Access restrictions in management interfaces and support channels
Access is restricted using assigned business roles and organisational management assignment.

Restrictions are contextual (e.g. users can see data relating to them, their team, their territory; managers can see data relating to their team members) and can be restricted at different levels:

* Screen access (work centres and views)
* Fields can be write, read-only or restricted
* Actions (e.g. escalating a ticket, exporting specific data to Excel )

Additionally, page layouts and the model rule editor enable setting attributes including visibility of screen sections or specific fields by business role or data (e.g. hide field "x" for complaint tickets).
Access restriction testing frequency
At least every 6 months
Management access authentication
  • 2-factor authentication
  • Identity federation with existing provider (for example Google Apps)
  • Dedicated link (for example VPN)
  • Username or password

What the ISO/IEC 27001 doesn’t cover
The scope for Edenhouse Solutions ISO27001 accreditation is SAP Support, Enhancements and Projects. What is currently out of scope and therefore not included are the following areas
Key management – we do not have a policy on the protection of cryptographic keys as we currently do not use these.
Working in Secure areas – We currently have no procedures for working in secure areas as Edenhouse do not have any secure area working currently.
Secure development policy – Rules for the development of software are not in place as Edenhouse does not currently develop software.
Restrictions on changes to software packages. Currently no procedures in place as we do not develop software.
All of the above would be reviewed and policies created should they come into scope for Edenhouse.
