Step-by-Step: Use the opportunity to run SAP SRM with S/4HANA to focus on your S/4HANA implementation.

The transformation of SRM-based procurement processes is progressing in the course of the release change to S/4HANA - affected companies should consider how they can gradually redesign their system landscape. In order not to overburden IT and business, many companies want to continue operating their SRM and SLC landscape for the time being. CONSILIO supports you in combining and implementing the potential benefits of the new S/4HANA system and the proven SAP SRM processes in the best possible way.

Influencing factors of a SAP SRM / SLC connection to SAP S/4HANA

Material number length

With SAP S/4HANA, you have the option of using a 40-digit material number. Such a fundamental decision also has an influence on the to-dos of an SAP SRM connection.

Interface technology

Recommended is the transmission of purchase requisitions, purchase orders or contracts from SAP SRM to S/4HANA via WebServices (SOA). Legacy technologies such as RFC are still partially supported.

Customer enhancements

SAP SRM and SLC systems in particular are often customized to a high degree. Customer developments that interact with a backend system may need to be adapted.


  • Full focus and concentration on your SAP S/4HANA transformation project
  • Capacity bottlenecks in IT and business can be prevented
  • Reduction of the project risk of the S/4HANA implementation

Especially for brownfield implementations, companies often decide to continue to operate SRM under S/4HANA. As a follow-up project to your S/4HANA implementation, you should address the transformation of your purchasing processes. This way you can realize the full potential of S/4HANA. CONSILIO supports you in the introduction of S/4HANA with SRM as well as in the transformation to S/4HANA and SAP Ariba in purchasing.
