Coupa Software has announced that Coupa P2P 17 (R17) has achieved SAP certification as integrated with SAP S/4HANA®.
The integration helps organisations extend the value of their investment in SAP® software. Coupa P2P 17 digitises business spend transactions and connects organisations to their global suppliers for operational excellence.
“Having our employees and suppliers use Coupa with integration to our SAP ERP backend is perfect for our business,” said Bob Worrall, senior vice president and chief information officer at Juniper Networks. “We integrated quickly and since then Coupa has largely run without the need for my IT team to get involved."
Globally, usage of cloud applications to extend ERP solutions continues to rise. "As of September 2016, 29% of software decision makers say their organisation has adopted at least one software-as-a-service (SaaS) app. Of those, 45% have adopted at least three SaaS apps and 12% at least seven."

“Our certification from SAP shows our continued commitment to fast deployments and open interoperability,” said Ravi Thakur, senior vice president, services, customer success and adoption at Coupa. “Regardless of back-end infrastructure approach, from on-premise to cloud to hybrid, we’ve proven our ability to quickly connect our cloud platform for business spend and deliver rapid value to customers around the world.”
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that the Coupa P2P 17 integrates with SAP S/4HANA using standard integration technologies. SAP S/4HANA is the next-generation business suite, built for the SAP HANA® platform, with on-premise and cloud deployment options. It is designed to act as the digital core.
