Since the first release of its applications, SAP Ariba has evolved and adapted to meet the changing needs of customers and suppliers alike. When it comes to keeping its readers updated on this procurement suite, it looks like SAP Press has taken a page out of SAP Ariba’s book with this new edition.
What will you learn?
From onboarding suppliers to analyzing spending trends, SAP Ariba: Business Processes, Functionality, and Implementation follows the general procurement workflow to provide a methodical reading experience for both consultants and end users.
This book transitions smoothly between SAP Ariba’s “upstream” procurement solutions (supplier collaboration, supplier lifecycle performance, sourcing, and contract management) and its “downstream” functionality (guided buying, operational procurement, invoice management, and also spend analysis).
Consequently, you’ll finish the book with a look at integration options, tools, and integration points for Ariba with SAP ERP, SAP S/4 Hana, SAP Ariba Cloud Integration Gateway, and more.
Furthermore, each chapter gives specific, step-by-step instructions for implementing and using core SAP Ariba applications. This comprehensive guide shows you what the future of procurement with SAP is shaping up to be.
Other highlights include:
- Ariba Network
- Ariba Discovery
- SAP Ariba Contracts
- Ariba Buying and Invoicing
- Ariba Supplier Information and Performance Management
