Dear All,

Is there any reason why business partner approach is replacing customer and vendor in SAP S/4 HANA. Will it have any functional implication over the business. And why BP has given much importance.

Functional as well as technical answers will be helpful.

Thank You

Hi,

Business Partner is Used in S/4 HANA for simplification and centralized . In SAP ECC Vendor , Customer and Employee need to maintain by using different T-Code. IN SAP CRM business partner concept is already working . So for Integration of Other Software like CRM , a common and simple concept needed , I think for this reason SAP uses Business Partner Concept.

IN SAP ECC 54 t code being used to main Vendor , Customer which is replace by single Tcode - " BP ".

On technical side a new table BP000 introduce for business partner and some aggregate table and index table has been removed.

Thanks.
