West Trax SAP KPI Of The Month – March 2014 On Average In The Consumer Goods Sector 16.9% Of Custom Code Is Used Frequently Custom Code programs are very time-consuming and costly for organisations using SAP. They should only be used when they enhance competitiveness or when comparable standard functionality is not available. But the reality is that in many production systems a variety of customised programs are infrequently used and rarely deliver value. Rather, they unnecessarily inflate system costs. Due to a lack of transparency a gap exists between system functions that are implemented and those that are actually used and this often goes unrecognised. Against this background the KPI of the Month for March highlights the average percentage of custom code that is frequently used in the Consumer Goods sector. This currently stands at 16.9%. i.e. on average just 16.9% of customised programs and transactions in SAP systems in the Consumer Goods sector are used on a daily basis. This benchmark is based on 155 system analyses. Standard software such as SAP is at its most productive when the available standard functionality is used as optimally as possible. Custom solutions should only be resorted to when they deliver a significant competitive advantage or when standard functionality cannot meet the requirements of the business. Most of the systems analysed by West Trax show significant underutilisation of major functional components that are currently available in the systems and are incurring SAP license and maintenance charges. Redundant or inefficiently used custom code, underutilisation of SAP standard software and a lack of awareness of available standard functionality all inflate the already substantial costs associated with SAP system operations and projects. Many organisations continue to support extensively customised systems or are burdened with substantial overheads due to redundant custom code. As a result the business advantages and added-value expected from their strategic investments in SAP are often unrealised. The consequences include lower productivity, increased costs, reduced profitability, compliance exposures and customer dissatisfaction.
