I attended this SAP webcast this morning and was surprised at the low attendance.  There are many improvements in FI-CO and no, I am not talking “Simple Finance” but the core FI-CO modules.

See below:

Customer Connection for Financials started last December

This customer connect started last December and closed workspace in February

SAP checked ideas which had the most subscriptions

They evaluated during the select phase

In April they held selection call

Subscribe means you will use improvements productively

I’m surprised at Figure 7, exporting to Excel from background jobs, but I understand it at the same time too, having done this many times myself.

I think the most interesting improvement includes all the notes listed with OB52 posting period automation – I only list a few below:

Figure 9 shows “display full user name” but looking at the note it says “Branch to user data” http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2073896

    Thank you Tammy for the useful overview on latest developments. In SAP it’s always the same, a lot of useful information, which is difficult (not convenient) to get.

    Hi Tammy,

    do you think you will install the note for the FBRA multiple document re-set?  I see this happen in the payments space when there is a mass of payments failure, and have been very curious to see what the update looks like.  I hope you will share if you install it!  🙂

    Thanks for a great post!

      Hi Amber – thanks again

      The KBA or note number wasn’t provided in the webcast and I just searched the SAP Improvement Finder for it and couldn’t locate it.

      Once it is made available we will check it out – I agree with you re: mass of payments failures can be challenging.
