The difference between Manage Payment Formats, DMEEX and DMEE.
You may have noticed that we currently have three apps for payment file mapping. Those are Manage Payment Formats, DMEEX and DMEE. There are numerous reasons for it.
You’re probably asking yourself – which app should I be using? Well, if you are on SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you should use Manage Payment Formats. If you are on SAP S/4HANA you should use DMEEX. And if you are on an older SAP ERP release you should use DMEE.
For our SAP S/4HANA Cloud customers, you can use Fiori Manage Payment Formats app. It’s able to process mapping of payment formats and its functionality has been enhanced to a level where you don’t need to use programming in order to modify a format.
What about our OnPremise customers? What is the difference between DMEEX and DMEE?
For start, DMEEX, which stands for Extended Data Medium Exchange Engine is the newest version on SAP S/4HANA, currently developed and being innovated which replaces DMEE (Data Medium Exchange Engine).
As for why are there still two apps for you, the reason is that while DMEEX is advised to be used by our on-premise customers for outgoing payments, it does not possess functionality of managing incoming formats, therefore, we advise to use DMEE for incoming formats at this moment.
