Dear Ariba User:
As a result of the recent Corporate Realignment announcements, the visibility group and business unit field will be updated with the new organizational structure between March 5th and March 6th. While the new hierarchy has higher impact for organizations under Corporate and Technology Projects and Services (TP&S) there also minor changes on the naming convention and grouping for all Business Units.
All historical and in flight user profiles, requisitions, service requests, supplier setup forms, contracts, sourcing projects (RFQs and Supplier Qualifications) and sourcing events referencing Business Units will have the new Business Unit Names. For contracts and sourcing projects the new level 2 to 4 hierarchy changes will be reflected. Ariba searches having the (Business Unit) field available will also reflect the new Business Unit name. The Visibility Group in the EURO form for new user requests will also be updated to reflect the new organizational hierarchy and new BU names.
SIMSmart will also reflect the same changes. Pre-packaged reports will be automatically updated.
Not in Scope:
-Pcard is not impacted by this hierarchy change.
-SIMS spend hierarchy is based on cost centers which will be updated later, a separate communication will be sent to SIMS spend users.
-SIMS mart power users have received a separate communication on the efforts to update customized impacted reports created by them.
Become familiar with the new hierarchy before you create or search for new transactions in Ariba or request for user creation or changes in EURO. This Link. reflects the new hierarchy, you can find your Business Unit with the old Business Unit naming convention in column T, the new business unit name is in column K and the new level 2 to level 4 hierarchy are on column E, G and I.
