Integrated Financial Planning in SAP Analytics Cloud: End-to-End Planning Process Sample Story
Co-Authored by Holger Faber and Nina Weilemann-Nguyen
In this blog we would like to introduce you to the new End-to-End Planning Process sample story that we have provided with SAP Analytics Cloud 2023.Q1 version.
The Integrated Financial Planning business content in SAP Analytics Cloud offers you a huge scope of possibilities to perform financial planning. This can make it seem overwhelming. To help you to better understand how to perform financial planning across all planning models, we’ve come up with an example of an end-to-end-process that covers the key capabilities of Integrated Financial Planning.
When you perform financial planning in an integrated way, you usually need to switch back and forth from one planning model to another because there are often dependencies and prerequisites that need to be fulfilled first. For example, if you want to calculate resources, you need to first plan the sales quantities. In the end-to-end story, we’ve anticipated these interdependent tasks in the order in which they need to be performed, and we’ve integrated them into the story. In this way, you can stay in this single story and perform all required steps in one flow.
Please keep in mind that the end-to-end story is for demonstration purposes only. It contains a sample process where we’ve included all dependent steps and provided all necessary sample data. In a company, the tasks in this story are typically performed at different points in time by different roles with different authorizations.
Have a look at the following quick run-through video of our End-to-End Planning Process sample story.
