SRM 7.0 without XI/PI

Hi,

Can we implement SRM 7.0 without XI/PI ?

Following is my business scenario:

- my client want to implement SRM 7.0 self-service procurement with classic scenario.

- SAP HR organization will link to SRM organization structure.

- Donu2019t want to use material master functionality in ECC.

- Shopping cart request would be with short description and without material master number.

- Shopping card can be created by selecting material from internal/external catalogue.

- SRM MDM catalogue will be updated manually i.e. by uploading data from excel sheet.

- We donu2019t want to update SRM-MDM catalogue updated automatically, for example info record or contract management.

Can we implement above scenario without XI/PI ?

Thanks,

Jennifer

    Hi Jennifer,

    Yes very much possible to do this without PI in your landscape.

    PI will come into picture only if you use the MM-SUS feature, central contracts (With ESOA), automatic replication of data into MDM and for implementing supplier qualification.

    By implement an old scenario perhaps as expert we can tell to them the negatif point but to make sure it work as request it's okay.

    In my company, we still use this requirement but still have a big problem when implement a new rule for end-user, many trouble when they want to create a reservation.

    Thank you all for your reply.

    Just last question :

    Do solution manager is mandatory for SRM 7.0 customaization change ?

    I have suggested following componet to install abouve scenarios set up:

    - SRM 7.0

    - Enterprise portal (We will use the existing EP and will import the SRM related content)

    - SAP ERP (we will use the existing SAP ECC and will link via RFC)

    - MDM Catalogue and SRM-MDM related UI

    Do I need to install any other componet other then the above for implementing my earlier mention business scenario ?For the time being we have decided not to use BW/BI.

    For your kind information, our basis guy has access to solution manager access. They can use solution manager for installation for any SRM 7.0 component. However in our organization, funtional consultant don't have solution manager access. I have worked on SRM 5.0 where we can change SRM customization setting without solution manager. But dont have much idea about SRM 5.0.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer
