I am interested and keen to learn SAP Ariba Supplier Lifecycle and Performance module from a consultant perspective. Can anyone help me with the learning path, key points, topics to cover, configuration checklist with steps, any link etc.
So, it would help me understand complete SLP Process from a consultant perspective.
(P.S: Please help me with any inputs possible, your help is appreciated. I'm looking for free Material/ Sources)
Thank you in advance.
A great place to start Learning SLP would be the Discovering SAP Ariba Supplier Management Learning Journey, which can be found here:
More content is being produced for this, so be sure to bookmark the page.
I would encourage you to also register for upcoming Live Sessions towards the bottom of the page.
Lastly, there are other SLP Resources available at LearningHub.SAP.com.
From there you can navigate to SAP Ariba Supplier Management and start to learn how to assess risk, improve collaboration, and create strategic supplier relationships.
We gathered material for those who are new to the topic and also listed popular courses.
