SAP ECC maintains different objects such as general data, company code data, purchasing organization data, and miscellaneous data. The maintenance of customer data requires users to also maintain general data, company code data, and sales area data.
With S/4HANA, the unification object that both customer and vendor share is address data, and thus requires new tables (e.g. table BUT000). Note that the old tables for customer data (KNA1) and vendor data (LFA1) are still available as the unique structure of company code, purchasing organization, and sales organization requires independent maintenance.
The following changes arise with the SAP Business Partner concept:
A single transaction BP allows users to create, change, and display the customer and vendor. This concept exceeds old transactions that are obsolete in S/4HANA (XD01, XD02, XD03, MK01, MK02, MK03, etc.).
Unification of the address data/object allows both customer and vendor to use the same screen/data set.
Users can maintain a new Business Partner as both customer and vendor.
