Technical Details of SAP SRM
SAP Supplier Relationship Management (SAP SRM) is powered by SAP NetWeaver, the integration and application platform that unifies and aligns people, information, and processes across technologies and organizations.
SAP NetWeaver lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) for SAP SRM customers by enabling them to integrate easily in heterogeneous landscapes. It also allows easy integration with SAP's wide, homogeneous solution architecture, so you can implement other SAP solutions more quickly and profitably.
SAP NetWeaver features several key capabilities that integrate people, information, and processes, including:
Portal and mobile infrastructure – Provide SAP SRM users with industry-leading portal technology that delivers unified, personalized, and role-based access to your heterogeneous IT environment – whether they're in the office or on the road.
Business intelligence – Integrate, analyze, and disseminate relevant and timely information. Support all SAP SRM processes with flexible, predefined reports.
Master data management – Promote information integrity across a business network in a heterogeneous IT environment. Consolidate content and make global spend visible by mapping and cleansing commodity and vendor information.
Business process management – Model and drive processes in a dynamic IT environment to combine underlying, heterogeneous applications into adaptive, end-to-end processes.
Application platform – Support platform-independent Web services, Web applications, and development based on key technologies such as J2EE and ABAP.
