Corporate Planning in the S/4 age

11/14/2019 MHPDeepDive

Simplification of planning?

The complete portrayal of integrated planning is a complex undertaking for companies. SAP S/4HANA Finance stands for a simplification of the financial system, and with BPC Optimized offers planning integrated into S/4. With SAP S/4HANA Finance, planning data are now again available directly in the ERP system, without you having to forgo the advantages of a BI planning tool.

Furthermore, companies can continue to implement their planning in a stand-alone BW, and also use the SAC for the planning. This increases the complexity in the planning architecture, and many customers ask how the planning system should be set up in an S/4HANA environment.

In our MHPDeepDive "Corporate planning in the S/4 age", we will show you what you need to take into consideration for the selection of planning tools and the architecture of the system landscape in the context of S/4HANA in order to optimally support an integrated planning process.

This MHPDeepDive will be concerned with the following themes, among others:

  • BPC Optimized in practice – Insights from the projects
  • Is a BW required for fully integrated planning, in addition to the S/4 system? When is S/4HANA used for planning, and when BW/4?
  • How are the SAC and FIORI embedded in the architecture?
  • Where is the journey taking us?
