You need the map – the roadmap for planning analysis and consolidation

Landscapes continue to evolve, expand and diversify. Depending on your environment variables there are different options available for achieving the best planning analysis and consolidation solution for you. There are some webinars you should be aware of also provided by the SAP Enterprise Support Academy to tighten up your awareness and improve your business capabilities.

As an enterprise planning expert put it recently in his Deep Dive into SAP’s Strategy for Enterprise Planning blog:

“Planning can no longer be done in a silo within the finance function or lines of business. It needs to be collaborative across the enterprise for better alignment and business outcomes.”

SAP Analytics Cloud is SAP’s primary strategic planning solution moving forward, with a focus on delivering enhanced value for SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC) via hybrid planning and analysis scenarios.

If you are on or implementing SAP S/4HANA On Premise, SAP S/4HANA for Group Reporting is the strategic solution for real-time financial consolidation requirements.

It is important for you to understand the roadmap for the future. So we’ve organized three sessions to help you:

  • Recently delivered in July 2019, the SAP BPC roadmap webinar outlines the product roadmap for the foreseeable future. Webinar recording and slides available via the link above.
  • New meet-the-expert (MTE) session: Simplify Planning and Analysis applications developed with SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning and SAP Business Planning and Consolidation.
    • Value and usage of SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning and SAP BPC as stand-alone or integrated planning
    • Discover the overall strategy and roadmap
    • watch demos of the planning capabilities
    • Register Tuesday, October 1, 2019 3:00 – 4:00 PM GMT (10:00 – 11:00 PM EST)(recording will be made available via the same link)
  • New MTE session: Get an overview on SAP S/4HANA Group Reporting and learn the new Capabilities in 1909.
    • Register Wednesday, October 9, 2019 3:00 – 4:00 PM GMT (10:00 – 11:00 PM EST)
      (recording will be made available via the same link)
