    Using Ariba Sourcing for Direct Materials procurement ??

    PANKAJ KUMAR Novice

      Can Ariba Sourcing be used for direct production material and New Product Introductions (NPI material) ? 

       

      In essence can Ariba Sourcing replace Oracle Sourcing which is used for Direct Materials ?

      Any example where it has been integrated with Oracle Purchasing Module etc.?

       

      rgds,

          Not knowing specifically the requirements you have for direct material sourcing, I would say we do most but probably not all. Ariba started as primarily an indirect sourcing solution, but we has evolved over the years to serve our customers wanting to source more and more of their spend, including direct materials.  And, with the acquisition of Ariba by SAP, the intention is to make more and more strides in that area in an accelerated pace. 

           

          Can you describe some of your major requirements in a DM sourcing solution?
