SAP Ariba - Integration with S/4 HANA

SAP S/4 HANA integration with the Ariba Network is native to SAP S/4HANA and this can be performed as part of SAP S/4HANA with guided configuration. You can navigate to “Ariba account settings” and it doesn’t require use of middleware. To meet your organization policies, you can integrate using a middleware like SAP Process Orchestration PI/PO on-premise or SAP HANA Cloud Integration HCI in the cloud. SAP also provides best practices to show you which mediated connectivity alternatives should be used for integration.

With the integration of SAP S/4HANA and Ariba, cloud allows the following processes −

  • Purchase order collaboration
  • Invoice collaboration
  • Service procurement
  • Discount management
  • Payment
