SOM in S/4 vs CRM with ECC
The terminologies, concepts & functionalities have been changed, modified, or added-
1- ‘Sales Contract’ in CRM with ECC has been changed to ‘Subscription Contract’ in SOM with S/4.
2- ‘Prov Order’ in CRM with ECC has been changed to ‘Subscription Order’ in SOM with S/4.
3- Replacement of ‘Business Agreement’ has been done with ‘Contract Account’ for SOM with S/4.
4- ‘CRM Product’ concept has been replaced with the ‘S/4 Product’ concept where it contains ‘Material Master’ with ‘Subscription Product Specific Enhancement’.
5- ‘Pricing in CRM’ has no existence & now replaced by ‘Central Price Maintenance’ with ‘SD Pricing Conditions’ for exclusively hardware, recurring, one-off charges.
6- “Usage Charges’ are still with Convergent Charging, but now with the concept of ‘Bundles’.
7- ODI- Order Distribution Infrastructure has been reusing for Subscription Order & Contract
8- SAP is using BRF + as rule engine instead of BRF
9- CRM with ECC uses ‘Solution Sales Configuration’ but SOM in S/4 can use more broad & useful product configuration tools like ‘Advance Variant Configuration’.

surojit saha - Concise; simple and to the point explanation - thanks for excellent post. Would love to see more - keep it up.
Many thanks for this!
I would add the benefit to have business partner and contract account masterdata in place without need of any replication (and related synchronization issues).
