Integration with SAP IBP
With this release, we get updated & enhanced SAP Analytics Cloud Content Package for Integrated Financial Planning including integration to SAP Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP).
Consensus demand plan quantity from SAP IBP flows into sales quantity planning which improves the quality of sales and profitability planning in SAP Analytics Cloud. The results of this planning are transferred back to SAP S/4HANA systems for Plan vs Actual Reports and to SAP IBP to increase the accuracy of the S&OP management business review process.
