BPC: NW – Reporting Strategy in exisiting SAP BW customers
In the last couple of months I have visited number of clients who has purchased BPC: NW version and planning to start their implementation process. In many cases, they already have BW-BPS, BI-IP solutions deployed for exisiting planning (mostly financial) process. As you can imagine, some of them has a quite a bit of investment on the classical BEx reporting and basically reluctant to migrate to a new front end look & feel.
As we roll out, BPC is all those places, we need to understand what are the options we have in terms of reporting & EIM strategy. Each client is unique and there shoud be a due diligence made to finanize the strategy. But it should be worthwhile to have all the options on the table before going forward.
Below you will see 4 such options, with high-level pros & cons.
