News for FICO Friends: ERP for Financials Customer Connection

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.
