3. The following technical component(s) is/are mandatory for the Self Service Scenario in SRM 5.0:
a) SAP SRM Server 5.5
b) SAP Catalog Content Management 2.0 (CCM)
c) XI Content for SAP SRM Server 5.5
d) Live Auction Cockpit (LACWPS) 5.0
ANSWER(S): A, B
The Self Service Scenario does not require XI or the Live Auction Cockpit as mandatory technical components. SAP XI is only required if XML-based communication/integration is required (e.g., CCM material master replication from SAP R/3 to SAP EBP to SAP CCM). The Live Auction Cockpit is also not a mandatory component for the Self Service Scenario.
According to the SRM 5.0 Component matrix published by SAP, the CCM component is a required install. However, organizations that choose not to utilize the CCM solution would have the option of not configuring CCM.
