The future with SAP S/4HANA
Due to its clear focus on SAP S/4HANA, in the future inconso will rely on the decentral SAP TM connected to SAP S/4HANA and the new embedded SAP TM within SAP S/4HANA. Interfaces and functions are the same as those of the decentral SAP EWM. They differ in the integration of warehouse processes into ERP processes. Companies that already use the decentral SAP EWM can switch from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA in their SAP EWM application without it adversely affecting their logistics processes. The interface in SAP EWM remains unchanged.
SAP S/4HANA Stock Room Management
SAP announced S/4HANA Stock Room Management in June. This means that SAP WM can still be used to a limited extent after 2025, but it will be called "Stock Room Management." The following WM functions may no longer be used after 2025: Task & Resource Management (TRM), WM-LSR Interface, Value Added Services (LZL, i.e. VAS), Yard Management (WM-YM), Cross-docking (WM-CD), Wave Management (WM-TFM-CP) and Decentral WM or LES (WM-DWM).
