SRM 7 or ECC6 EHP 6?

Currently we have ECC6 and SRM 5 - if we were looking to move away from SRM 5 should we be thinking about upgrading to 7 or removing it completely and adding EHP 6 to our ECC6? Where can I find out about the additional functionality to procurement EHP6 provides?? Thanks

    Hi Fay,

    If you would like to upgrade to higher version of SRM then you can go for SRM 7.0 EHP3 with ECC 6.0 EHP6. Because this is the highest version which is available in market now.

    As Maria mentioned above, you can find the information under - Service Marketplace -> Installation and upgrades

    • Hi Fay ,

      A very difficult questions !! To be honest SAP has all the application related data left online and is easily accessible but the pricing data is never available

      and I guess it is only accessible on request ..So price wise I would have not much idea however below is what I understand

      Stay on SRM 5 unsupported--------------------- Not a good idea its almost obsolete now

      Move to SRM 7--------------------------------- yes incase you plan to stay with SRM then this is definitely the option to consider .. specially with its new .. Supplier evaluation and spend analysis capabilties and also for the contracts , etc

      Remove SRM and procure via ECC6 ---- if srm Shopping capabilities Portal based and Self service procurement etc are not quite imp for you and the backend ECC is good enough then you may go for this as well ...

      Remove SRM and procure via ECC6 with EHP6--- Only if the EHP6 added feature is of a real imp to you else you can wait easily till SAP does it next release and consider up gradation of ECC around that time No point in upgrading both SRM and ECC together ..

      Also IN Tech-ed I was heard SAP showed their vision path that New developments for SRM would be over by 2020 and they would want to use Ariba as their new product .. since SAP has acquired Ariba now .. This is what I have heard so not quite sure ..

      Let me know which particular SRM business scenario do you guys use ..so that I can check further ..

      All the above are just my thoughts on the Topic from my experience and I might be wrong .

    Hi Fay,

    There is no restriction between SRM_SERVER and SAP_APPL.

    You may install SRM7.02 with old ECC6.

    However there is some new functionalities which needs to be triggered together with ECC6 EHP4 and above.

    For example, PR transfer with U account is only supported with SRM7.02 and above & SAP_APPL 606 and above. And can only SOA instead of RFC to transfer.

    For more information, you can go to service market place to find documents for specific release of SRM and ECC.

    Regards,

    Ivy
