The issues with SAP TPM today


Poor Usability

High Complexity

The SAP CRM WebUI is


too slow and complex for
Promotions Planning and
Retail Execution.
The SAP CRM WebUI is
too slow and complex for
field-based users
The SAP CRM WebUI is
too complex for casual
users
There is no meaningful
mobile solution based
on a laptop client which
requires separate
development &
supporting infrastructure.

SAP TPM is a complex,


highly integrated solution
designed to support a
complex business
process.
It is difficult to implement
well.
It is complex to use dayto-day.
It is difficult to maintain
and support.

Poor
Performance
Many SAP TPM customers
experience poor solution
performance.
Promotion planning is slow.
Price, discount & rebate
condition generation is
slow

Slow Deployment

The speed of
deployment of SAP TPM
into new markets
hampered by available
mobile technology.
Extensive infrastructure
requirements.
Extensive end-user
training requirements.
Complex solution is
often difficult &
expensive to maintain &
is not particularly
agile/flexible.

solution will actually be
used put the user at the

UI5.
Consider SAP Cloud for
Sales for field-based
resource.

Revisit business
requirements and map to

solution.
Seek opportunities to
reduce customer specific
enhancement and
bespoke developments.

Investigate Business
Suite on HANA (ERP &

improvements around
promotion planning, price,
discount and rebate
generation

Accelerate deployment
of TPM into new markets
with SAP Cloud for
