SAP has been working on a new solution that should be interesting to those of us that work in the projects area of ERP.
The new solution, SAP Commercial Project Management, is geared for the lead-to-cash scenario and covers processes for selling, planning, execution, and monitoring of projects. The new solution has different components to handle these diverse requirements. There is a new Project Workspace, a new Project Financial Planning area as well as Project Issue and Change Management area.
SAP had been hosting calls over the past year where they reviewed the current state of the solution but they were closed to a small group of customers, partners, and SAP employees. Now that the solution is nearly released, Dr. Martin Effenberger and his team are hosting some additional calls that are open to the rest of the SAP community. Four sessions are scheduled and registration is required.
Here's a link to Martin's blog in the CPM area of SCN: Information sessions for customers on SAP Commercial Project Management.
