Company spending is always a hot topic. Businesses are careful to guard their cash, and with good reason. As the saying goes, “when you are out of cash, you are out of business”. If you want to better track and control business expenses and wondering which spend management solutions from SAP can help you achieve that, you’re in the right place! We have been busy transforming our SAP Enterprise Support value map for SAP Ariba solutions and the enhanced version is NOW LIVE!   

Value maps provide self-paced learnings, expert-led live sessions, collaborative forums, and access to SAP experts; all included as part of your SAP Cloud subscription contract. 

The concept of intelligent spend management brings together the best from SAP: SAP Ariba, SAP Fieldglass and SAP Concur solutions in the areas of finance, sourcing, and procurement. Embracing this holistic view of all types of spend for intelligent enterprises, our Spend Management and Business Network value map supports these solutions under the following sub-solution areas: Procurement; Travel & Expense; External Workforce; and Business Network.

What's new?

Customers want procurement made as easy and frustration-free as possible. The re-engineered value map delivers an expanded catalogue of enablement content including new Learning Journeys on topics such as SAP Ariba Supplier Lifecycle and Performance; SAP Ariba Supplier Risk; SAP Strategic Sourcing Suite; SAP Ariba Spend Analysis; SAP Ariba Contracts; SAP Ariba Buying; SAP Ariba Buying & Invoicing; SAP Ariba Guided Buying; and SAP Ariba Catalogs. 

The value map empowers customers to adopt spend management solutions from SAP to maximum potential, paving the way to simple successful digitized procurement. 

Watch this space!

This is just the first phase and the value map will eventually incorporate a swath of further enablement assets covering SAP Ariba product releases, and SAP Business Network for Procurement -  a cloud-based collaboration offering that gives buyers and suppliers a way to find each other and do business within a single, networked platform.  Ernestine Cosper, Global Topic Owner for the Spend Management and Business Network value map anticipates a busy time ahead: 

We are so pleased to share the fresh new look and feel of our value map. With over 16,000 members, SAP Enterprise Support value maps act as a gateway to spend management for so many customers, and our value map gives them the means to achieve and boost adoption from the onset. We look forward to providing more enablement content in the coming months.
