S/4HANA and SRM

Before upgrading to S/4HANA please see KBA 2611066 and need to consider the followings:

  • The procurement solution of S/4HANA is not a successor of SAP SRM and it has limited capabilities compared to SAP SRM.
  • The functionality of procurement solution is planned to be gradually improved to reach the functional equivalence over time.
  • SAP ERP cannot be deployed as an Add-On, which means that only OneClient scenario is supported.
  • S/4 HANA and SAP SRM cannot be installed on the same system.

For further details about the compatibility, refer to SAP Note 2271166 and to Section 2.1.4 of Simplification List for S/4HANA on premise.

Before upgrading to S/4 HANA, refer to SAP Note 2216943 and 2251946 to perform the necessary checks and pre-requisites for the transition.
