SAP Sourcing / CLM is Java based Web Application deployed on Netweaver Platform (Java AS) Stack. It Mainly covers Sourcing (Pre Award Functionality) and Contact Lifecycle Management (CLM)
SAP Ariba as well is Java based Web Application, but it offers wide veriety of features and covers wide areas such as, Spend Management, Sourcing To Contract and Procurement To Pay.
