Telephony Integration in SAP Cloud for Customer

In the past I have done an accreditation on the integration of SAP BCM (the previous name of SAP's Contact Center solution) and SAP CRM onPremise. The past two years I have been working as a C4C consultant and obviously became interested in the possibilities of integrating C4C with SAP Contact Center. When one of my customers requested details about the integration possibilities between SAP BCM and C4C, I investigated the possibilities, which I would like to share here.

What's in store for the February release of SAP Cloud for Customer?

SAP updates its Cloud for Customer system four times a year and we have just had the first one of 2016.
I would like to share with you an extract of the fully detailed scope document for the highlights of new and improved functionalities of this release.
I am taking you on a trip through the different areas of interest: sales, service and overall.



Sales

Sales area independent relationships

As of the February release you can maintain sales area dependent relationships. This means that, when creating a relationship between two accounts, you can add your own defined sales area. During partner determination on your transactions, sales area data is taken into account. When you are running an integrated scenario with SAP ECC, this data is also replicated.
You need to activate sales area dependency for each relationship type in your system configuration.
