Review: Sourcing and Procurement in SAP S/4Hana

For those working with SAP Logistics, SAP ERP’s Materials Management module will be extremely familiar. But SAP ERP is getting older every day, and SAP’s next-generation platform, SAP S/4Hana, is consistently adding new functionality. How does it handle procurement? What kinds of integration options are there? SAP Press’ latest book gives you the comprehensive overview.

What will you learn?

Sourcing and Procurement in SAP S/4Hana takes a look at the different procurement functionality in S4, and shows just how easy it is to implement and use them. Whether you’re interested in direct and indirect procurement, inventory and contract management, or operational and automated procurement, you’ll find answers in this book. This is the in-depth look at sourcing and invoicing that has been missing in the market—and it’s been updated for release 1709!

Learn how to track shipments, provide service entries, and collaborate with suppliers. Take a look at delivery schedules, forecasts, and inventory—go from lagged decision making to real-time collaboration.

However, the book is more than just S&P. Sure, you’ll learn how to run the solution on premise or in the cloud, but you’ll also learn how to integrate it with SAP solutions such as SAP Ariba, Fieldglass, and SuccessFactors. Plus, sections on customizing the Fiori UI are helpful for those looking to make the transition to sourcing and procurement as easy as possible for their team.
