    Hello Munikumar,

    Could you please advise why your client is choosing to upgrade on SRM 5.0? SRM 5.0 mainstream maintenance already ended in March 2012 and their Extended Maintenance is ending in March 2015. Please fine below details from Product Availability Matrix (PAM) from SAP.

    Details for Product Version SAP SRM 5.0

    Official Name:SAP Supplier Relationship Management 2005Product:SAP SRMType of Product Version:StandaloneRelease Type:StandardCurrent Status:In extended maintenance Portfolio Category:Applications > SAP Business Suite > Core Applications > SAP SRM Releases and EhPs

    Release Plan

    Release to Customer:10/24/2005
    General Availability:06/02/2006
    End of Mainstream Maintenance:03/31/2012
    End of Extended Maintenance:03/31/2015

    I would recommend first of all to go with SRM 7.0 version with netweaver technology as that is the latest version and with SRM 7.0 going forward there will be enhancements packs for any new upgrade so you do not have to spend much time upgrading it.

    Coming back to your question, About recommending SRM - SUS, You may be aware that SAP bought Ariba and SAP future landscape is to have folks who are having low volume can utilize Ariba Supplier network which is more cost effective then maintaining own SRM SUS server and in Ariba Supplier network you can do all the activities which you have mentioned above.

    Hope this will help .

    Thank you

    Hi,

    In ECS only PO processing is possible. One needs to go for consulting solution for confirmation & invoice creation.

    • Hi,

      Yes. It's possible through z. We have tried it before but it's not consistent. Indeed we didn't continue with it. So if your technical scenario is ESC & if it needs to configure SUS one should go for consulting solution.

      I hope it helps.

      Regards,
