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.
The following functionalities are available:
Tenders and auctions have so far been handled almost exclusively via SAP SRM or other third-party systems. You can continue to use these functions in SRM under S/4HANA without any problems. But it is also worthwhile to have a look at the new functionalities in S/4HANA. SAP has given the tender a new look in the new S/4HANA Core. And this does not only refer to the new Fiori design.
The shopping cart functionality and its approval is probably the most used function in SAP SRM. Many companies only use this part of SRM. You can also create a purchase requisition, purchase order or reservation in S/4HANA from shopping carts. To implement shopping cart functionality in S/4HANA, SAP offers several new Fiori Apps for creating purchase requisitions.

Everything concerning the supplier is the responsibility of the Supplier Lifecycle Management. But just like SRM, SLC will soon reach the end of its life cycle.
SAP has now divided the functionalities of the SLC into two clusters and implemented each in different systems:
If you want to continue using SLC with S/4HANA, you must note that SAP always considers an SAP MDG to be mandatory for integration with S/4HANA.
