The Future of SAP SRM
As a Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) user, you may be curious to find out more about the future of this solution. SAP previously announced that SAP SRM 7.0 will have mainstream maintenance until 2025. There will be very limited innovations in the meantime for the end user to take advantage of.
The innovations for digitalizing the procurement processes happen in SAP S/4HANA and SAP Ariba. This does not mean that you have to replace SAP SRM immediately. This does however provide us with a good opportunity to review how well SAP SRM is addressing the current business challenges and ambitions of your organization. There are multiple path’s possible towards your future procurement organisation. Let’s find out what your ideal path is.
Whether your future procurement strategy is going to be supported by SAP Ariba and/or SAP S/4HANA, the SAP Ariba Network has a central position in it. It is the world’s largest B2B network that enables easy digital collaboration with your suppliers. Connecting the SAP Ariba Network to your SAP ECC and/or SAP SRM can be done quickly. For SAP SRM customers, doing so deliver fast time-to-value. It is low hanging fruit and your first leap into the future of procurement. Accounts Payable will be 3-5 times more efficient by automating the PO- and invoicing processes and realizing ‘touchless invoicing’ processes.
