List of SAP SRM Components

SAP SRM has several components that offer different functionalities. Installing SRM components will depend on required functionalities for the implementation scenario. List of SAP SRM components are.

  1. EBP (Enterprise Buyer professional) – Portal for Buyer organization to perform procurement and purchasing activities
  2. SUS (Supplier self-service) - Portal for supplier organization to perform collaboration activities such as PO, and Invoice

  7. MDM Catalogue – MDM is used for hosting catalogues used by SRM. Catalogue information is sent to SRM using OCI. Earlier, CCM was used for hosting in-house Catalogues. But this functionality was replaced by MDM as SAP is pushing all master data handling to MDM.
