Getting Started with Business Planning


Overview Information

Real-Time Data in SAP Business Planning and Consolidation on SAP HANA:
Hands On Session TechEd 2012

Architect a real-time data flow from SAP ERP into SAP Business Planning and Consolidation on SAP HANA, based on a hybrid-providers architecture in SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse on SAP HANA. Explore the new EPM add-in capabilities including write back and advanced report building and the usage of formulas and local members to enrich the reporting experience and build critical reports such as price-volume-mix analysis. We will address common questions such as EVDRE reporting vs. the new application 10 drag and drop reporting paradigm. We will use an easy to consume business process flow that guides the business user through the planning process while linking to planning instructions and schedules and data manager packages to enrich data and analysis processes. Thanks to new functionality available in the latest SAP Business Planning and Consolidation release, we can use a MultiProvider to combine the real-time actuals in data in SAP NetWeaver BW and the SAP Business Planning and Consolidation data together for immediate variance reporting.

Moving from BW-IP to SAP HANA optimized planning with the new Planning Applications Kit

In-memory technology is a long-standing success story in SAP NetWeaver BW. The introduction of SAP NetWeaver BW Accelerator provided a new level of reporting performance and became role model for others. Since then there has been a powerful drive to significantly accelerate planning use-cases with this technology too. Now, with the Planning Applications Kit, in-memory technology supports planning use cases too.

Planning powered by SAP HANA. Combine BW IP, BPC and SAP HANA to innovate.

We are often asked the following question: What kind of in-memory based planning solution should I use for my company? BW Integrated Planning or BPC? The correct answer depends very much on the business requirements, and very often you will get the best planning solution for your company if you use a combination of BW Integrated Planning and BPC.
