There are redundant object models in the traditional ERP system. Here the vendor master and customer Master is used. The (mandatory) target approach in S/4HANA is the Business Partner approach. Business Partner is now capable of centrally managing master data for business partners, customers, and vendors. With current development, BP is the single point of entry to create, edit, and display master data for business partners, customers, and vendors.
This is of prime interest if a business partner plays different roles for a company, such as sold-to party and ship-to party.
You can create a business partner in different business partner roles. During the course of the business relationship, the business partner can assume other business partner roles. You do not need to create the general data, which is independent of a business partner’s function or of application-specific extensions, again in each case for this business partner. This prevents data being created and stored redundantly.
