SAP Contract Lifecycle Management 2.0 successfully exited the Ramp-up program and is now generally available. A condition for General Availability (GA) is a successful Ramp-up process. We had several Ramp-up customers go live on Contract Lifecycle Management 2.0 and a few more will go live in the near future. New features in Contract Lifecycle Management 2.0 will streamline contract processes and accelerate access to contract documents.

  • Increase Contract Awareness and Usage
  • The integration of the TREX search increases visibility into the central contract repository by adding full-text search into all contracts, clauses, and attachments.

  • Enhanced contract document amendment process
  • New features include a standardized contract amendment process with automatic amendment document (delta) creation. Users can initiate an amendment for a released contract document and have a comprehensive view of the changes to the contract document (full audit trail and versioning).

    Amend Contract

  • Streamlined contract creation capabilities ensure continued compliance to corporate policies
  • Users can create master agreement and contract documents with a single contract template.

    Master Agreement and Related Documents

  • Enhanced user experience – More intuitive user interface and streamlined processes.
  • Expanded platform support – CLM 2.0 not only supports rapid deployment as a service, but also can now be deployed in-house on a number of platforms.

  • New Language Support

  • Simplified process for creating projects for new contract opportunities – User-Defined Objects (UDOs) are often created to capture contract requests and opportunities. A contract manager can initiate a project from these requests.

      Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for your message.  The integration between CLM and SRM is not yet supported in CLM 2.0.  However, there are a couple of customers who have built the integration between CLM and SRM on their own as a custom project. 

      We are planning to support this integration as a standard solution in a near future release, but I cannot commit to a timeline at this point. 

      I hope this answers your question.

      Thanks,
      Steven

  1. Steven,
    where can I find some detailed technical documentation about SAP CLM? I looked in the SDN and the HELP portal, but I only found product brochures.

    Thanks and regards,
    Paolo
