The SAP Sourcing/CLM Product Team is offering another series of training sessions during September (in Newtown Square, PA) and October (in Walldorf, Germany). Training sessions will be focused on:

  • Functions and Features (TSO100)
  • Technical aspects (TSO150)
  • Integration to ERP and SRM (TSO180)

In this post, I would like to address some questions we receive from participants before/during our training classes.

Which topics are offered in TSO100 and who should attend?

The TSO100 class goes through all the functional aspects and capabilities of the product with detailled exercises and hands-on sessions in the areas of:

  • User Experience and Navigation
  • Workbench
  • Project Management
  • RFx
  • Auction
  • Contract Management
  • Supplier Management

We normally recommend this class for SAP Sales and Pre-Sales as well as Functional Consultants. This class also serves the need for helping customers who are just getting started and/or are planning to start an implementation project with SAP Sourcing/CLM.

Which topics are offered in TSO150 and who should attend ?

TSO150 is a technical class, and the focus lies more around the different technical aspects of SAP Sourcing/CLM. This class in part covers some advanced configuration topics which do not neccessarly require deep technical knowledge, such as:

  • Page customization
  • Localized resources
  • Extensions
  • Business Rule Designer
  • User Defined Objects

The second half of the class requires a good understanding of Java and SQL in order to gain benefit from this class. There will be lessons and hands-on sessions on technical aspects of SAP Sourcing/CLM i.e.:

  • Creating Reports and Queries
  • Write Scripting
  • Design and write Workflows

Which topics are offered in TSO180 and who should attend ?

TSO180 is our latest training offering and puts emphasis on the increased need and focus for integration to other SAP backend systems. As of v7.0 / Wave 7, SAP Sourcing has been offering a standard integration into SAP ERP-MM which is being enabled through PI (more blogs on integration: SAP ERP RFQ integration with SAP Sourcing, ERP integration - Tips and Tricks, Using Price Conditions in SAP Sourcing, Extracting Master Data for SAP Sourcing). With our latest release SAP Sourcing/CLM 9.0 / Wave 9, the product is now also integrated with SAP SRM Central Contracts (see blog on SAP Sourcing/CLM integration with CLM), we saw the need to offer a class on how to configure this integration and benefit it.

As a pre-requisite for this class, it is recommended that the participants have already experience with either of these solution and in the optimal case with all of them:

  • SAP Sourcing/CLM
  • SAP NetWeaver PI

Do the participants get hands-on session with the product in these classes?

Yes, the main focus of all of these classes is to explain and expose the participants to the system as much as possible. All classes have exercises and solutions which will be handed out to the students afterwards for "home-study" sessions.

Does this class cover installation related questions?

No, none of these classes are covering installation related question. For any installation related queries, we recommend to study the Installation guide which is available to all SAP customers on www.service.sap.com/eso. Also does this class not cover any application server related issues; for all on-Premise customers, we recommend to study the NetWeaver installation guide which is also available on https://service.sap.com/netweaver

How do I sign up ?

All trainings onwards will be held in a SAP Sourcing/CLM 9.0 system. The classes can be booked via www.training.sap.com. The direct registration links for the trainings are listed below
