SAP CVI: The first step
towards SAP S/4HANA

Connecting business partners, customers and vendors –
with SAP Customer Vendor Integration

Successful transition to SAP Business Partner: With SAP CVI, you bring all master data of suppliers and customers under one roof

In SAP ERP systems, it was still optional to use SAP Business Partner (at least as long as e.g. SAP CRM, SAP SRM or SAP Ariba were not used). Customers and vendors were normally used as separate master data objects.

When switching to SAP S/4HANA, things are different: Using the SAP Business Partner is mandatory here. The connection between Business Partner and customer/vendor is created using the CVI interface. This interface ensures that any change to the Business Partner is immediately transferred to the customer/vendor master.

These are the advantages of a separate project before the actual transition to SAP S/4HANA:

  • Shorter project phase of the main project: The upstream implementation of the SAP Business Partner equalizes the main project. This avoids delays.
  • Key users given focus and reduced workload: Each person participating in the project can focus on a single aspect of the transition to SAP S/4HANA.
