Can someone help me with the answer for this question? In our existing client we are planning for only Punch out catalogs and no internal catalogs. In order to achieve this scenario, is it necessary to have CCM installed as well. Our basis team is yet to install the software and I need to suggest them whether they need to install CCM or not. Some colleagues said CCM is not necessary as we are not maintaining and hosting internal catalogs. But when I look at the component matrix for SRM 5.0 I see " SAP Catalog Content Management 2.0" and "XI content for SAP Catalog content management 2.0" as Mandatory.
Can someone suggest me as whether CCM is actually required if we are hosting only punchout catalogs and NO INTERNAL CATALOGS? Also if not necessary, can someone let me know in which scenarios exactly do we need to go for CCM installation?
