Information about business add-ins (BAdIs) often grabs my attention because by definition they sound so simple, yet they act as powerful tools to beef up you SAP applications.
The SAP Library defines BAdIs for us:
Business add-ins are enhancements to the standard version of the system. They can be inserted into the SAP System to accommodate user requirements too specific to be included in the standard delivery.
It sounds so clean-cut, doesn’t it? And BAdIs offer some great advantages when you use them.
Michael Debevec, president of Debevec Consulting, Inc., writes about a benefit of BAdIs that SAP CRM professionals can use. The information appears as part of a new quick tip for CRM Expert called, “Use External Data Sources for Pricing Condition Determination.”
The pricing functionality in S
AP CRM is limited compared to SAP ERP Central Component, in part because of the absence of certain data in SAP CRM.
“With the use of the customer reserve data access methods (external data sources) implemented with business add-ins … it is possible to provide this functionality,” Debevec writes.
Debevec explains how to implement BAdIs so that you can feed external data into pricing. It’s an easy and useful tip that amplifies your SAP CRM pricing configuration.
