Strategic Priorities for Technical Services

Enable Solution Orders

The new solution order management process in the 2105 release of SAP S/4HANA Cloud now enables businesses to sell products, services and subscriptions in a single order, integrated along the order-to-cash process using the latest technology innovations.

Subscriptions and pay-per-use models are designed and managed in SAP Subscription Billing solution, a scalable and cloud-native solution on SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP), natively integrated into the solution order management process.

 The solution order integrates with the professional services functionality in SAP S/4HANA Cloud. This enables companies to sell bundled solutions, such as a point-of-sale solution including hardware, field services, maintenance agreements, software subscriptions and a rollout project in a single, integrated order management process.
