I'm have been asked to look at the technical requirements for implementing Environmental Compliance.
I have found the EC3.0 implementation guide and it clearly lists the requirements for the installation.
However, looking around, I have found documents that have bundled EH&S Environmental Compliance into the GRC Solution. We have just implemented GRC Risk Management v10 which recently jumped from v3 to V10 (and Java stack to ABAP stack).
Is a similar upgrade/migration being planned for Environmental Compliance and if so, what is the timeframe?
from my point of view: actually a clear strategy is missing how SAP will "combine" the different EHS tools/solutions with GRC tools/solutions etc.
If you do a survey at SAP side you will find terms like "sustaniability" etc. All these tools provide solutions which are useful to a certain extent taking account your demands. Some years ago SAP started to use BusinessObjects (e.g. http://www.sap.com/germany/solutions/sapbusinessobjects/large/governance-risk-compliance/index.epx (sorry german link)
Regarding your question: I have no idea if they will integrate GRC and Environmental Compliance solution; i have no indication that they wil do that; taking into account the past: I believe the integration of the tools will be enhanced step by step.
If you take a survey at SAP side using terms like e.g. "Strategy management" and others/similar terms there is a clear indication that SAP is working on the topic (higher integration). If you check the sides using SOA you will find further EHS solutions.
So I am sorry. I have actually no further information regarding the topic
With best regards
PS: take a look here:
http://www.sap.com/solutions/business-analytics/enterprise-performance-management.epx (check topic of "Strategy Management)
To a certain extent this link might be helful too:
PPS: If you do a survey of marketplace you will find further add on solutions (like Dashboards in the context of EHS SVT etc.); therefore different directions are followed: BI/BW tools (analyze EHS topics from the point of view of top management) and demands regarding data handling/Integration in processes to be more compliant etc.
