Sample Scenario: Organize business workflows to manage planning periods (along the example of ABC computer)


In fact, SAC’s calendar provides a lot of capabilities to manage planning periods. Processes, events and especially workflows can be orchestrated centrally within SAC’s calendar. To ensure an organized execution of any company’s planning period the calendar provides lots of features and functions to support business workflows. The tight integration of SAC’s calendar into SAC’s planning applications positions workflows at the heart of every planning activity!

The scenario (along the fictional example of the company ABC computer) in the video shown below gives a first glimpse on what value planning process components deliver to organize planning periods in operation.

Note, the video already uses the upcoming feature: dependencies. It allows linking calendar tasks. The feature is planned to be released in 2022 QRC2 of SAP Analytics Cloud!


0:00 – Introduction
2:42 – Country Manager (plan budget and submit)
4:06 – Region Manager (review budget and approve)
6:14 – Region Manager (submit budget for region)
7:22 – Production Manager (review budget and reject)
8:07 – Region Manager (reopen task)
9:22 – Country Manager (refine planed budget)
10:04 – Region Manager (review & submit budget for region)
11:29 – Production Manager (review budget and approve)
12:04 – CFO

      Thank you, Johannes Huhn, I'll use the video in my demos instead of having to reset/recreate the workflow every time.

      Where exactly can we see the dependencies in the video? Is it there?

      I am very happy you appreciate the content!

      We plan to publish further videos on the illustrated scenario above. One extension will show the modeled processes, events and tasks within the calendar. This will incorporate dependencies, too.
