Siemens Energy SAP ARIBA Implementation

Siemens Energy is executing on its Vision. A major focus of this Vision is the strategy of digitalization across all parts of our business.

Digitalization is fundamentally transforming the value chain and offers major opportunities for all parties. It helps us automate order processing, achieve speed, end-to-end visibility, remove manual errors while improving quality and efficiency. Digitalization is not just a project, for us in Siemens energy it has become a part of our strategy. We consistently pursue our goal of driving ahead our digitalization initiatives. We continuously seek to make our procurement processes simpler and more efficient not only for us, but for you as our supplier partners as well. From mid-2022 onwards, Siemens Energy has decided to use a new and innovative solution SAP ARIBA to continue its collaboration with you. 

We are leaving behind SCM Star for the implementation of SAP ARIBA, our new all-in-one suite for both strategic and indirect procurement, to create a more simplified system landscape for both of us, Siemens Energy and our suppliers.

We proceed step-by-step with the implementation of ARIBA, starting in June 2022.

As one of our suppliers there is no need to take an active step from your side. Our teams are working in the background on registering you as suppliers on ARIBA and migrating all the data. As soon as there are concrete steps to be taken by you, you will be contacted via E-Mail or your usual communication channel with us and will receive further  instructions.

Please visit this website regularly for further information and news about our ARIBA implementation, as we will update and extend the content here on a regular basis. 

  • The new intuitive and user-friendly design of ARIBA provides easier handling of all source-to-contract-activities. 
  • Contract negotiations and price inquiries will all be available in just one platform and especially the RFQ process in ARIBA simplifies our collaboration and makes both of us more time-efficient 
  • No more system changing between different platforms like (SCM Star or your E-Mail provider) in general – ARIBA is our single point of truth.
  • On-demand data availability, increased data transparency and simplified processes empower us internally but also you as a supplier to fully utilize the data and make informed decisions for example through accurate pricing.
  • As part of our ARIBA implementation, you will have the chance to become a part of the SAP Business network. Registering on the network provides you as suppliers with access to a network of high-volume buying organizations that can download the supplier’s product and service catalogs and decide which products to purchase. Many of you already have access to this network and can therefore simply register with your already existing account. 

We are currently setting up the SE ARIBA supplier manuals with a detailed step-by-step guidance through the different processes.

SE ARIBA Supplier Manuals

You can find the first manuals for your registration, qualification and also how to answer on an RfP, eAuctions (English/Dutch) and Sealed Bid here. We will publish further manuals for you continuously.

SE ARIBA Video Nuggets (English language only) 

In addition to the manuals there are also SE ARIBA supplier video nuggets with a guidance on selected processes available for you. You can find here video nuggets regarding the Sourcing process (how you answer on an RfP and how to participate at eAuctions).

We are leaving behind SCM Star for the implementation of SAP ARIBA, our new all-in-one suite for both strategic and indirect procurement, to create a more simplified system landscape for both of us, Siemens Energy and our suppliers. As part of the ARIBA implementation, we have also optimized our qualification process according to newest industry standards. We will proceed step by step with the new qualification process and will inform you in time prior to your own qualification. 

Currently, there is no need to take an active step from your side. Our teams are working in the background on registering you as suppliers on ARIBA and migrating all the data.
 

As soon as there are concrete steps to be taken by you, you will receive an E-Mail with further instructions. Please be aware that the sender of the E-Mail might have an automatically generated E-Mail address like s4system-prodeu+Siemens-Energy.Doc996077591@eusmtp.ariba.com.
 

To inform you prior to this E-Mail and give you detailed instructions on what to do we are publishing SE Supplier Manuals here on the website under the “Manuals” tab - these are constantly updated and expanded by us. 

Of course, you can still contact us personally, especially when it comes to negotiations, we even want to intensify our personal contact with you. However, when it comes to communicating about placing orders, it makes more sense to communicate via the system from July 2022 on. You have the additional advantage that you can make changes to your data at any time and from anywhere.

You will receive an E-mail from Siemens Energy for registration with ARIBA. Our manuals on this website will give you a step-by-step guidance on what you need to do once you receive this E-Mail. 

Yes, ARIBA will completely replace SCM Star as part of our spin-off from Siemens.

We are convinced that ARIBA is a leading system with high penetration in our industry and we see the implementation of ARIBA, our new all-in-one suite for both strategic and indirect procurement, as an opportunity to harmonize all source-to-contract processes. But please tell us about your concerns. We expect that our project team will be able to solve specific problems.
