Business Planning and Consolidation revolutionized Through SAP BPC 11

SAP BPC 11 has arrived to change EPM’s world with its new set of impressive features. It may sound like the latest upgrade, as you have probably seen countless versions pop up already but it is in fact a completely new product with a separate license. Think of it as more of a migration. Some of the standouts include:

  1. A web worksheet concept is introduced to simplify web reporting/planning objects. Within one worksheet, you can have multiple grids and charts for reporting and data input
  2. Deeper integration with SAP Analytics Cloud allows business users to quickly sync data back and forth between SAP Analytics Cloud and BPC.
  3. New HTML5 web interface provides a fresh new look and feel. new menu and bread crumb navigation helps user to jump between different features with fewest clicks
  4. Using advanced Data Store Objects (aDSO) and composite providers and no longer InfoCubes and classic DSO’s

While SAP’s newest BPC version offers numerous new capabilities, it still provides a couple of its best features such as providing the Standard and Embedded models.

But which key benefit has been the most revolutionary of them all? The fact that SAP Analytics was directly integrated with SAP Analytics Cloud so that BPC can use the Predictive Analytics function to produce new insights. Predictive Analytics has helped uncover the real forces behind the variety in business.

SAP BPC 11 is the future of EPM. It was built accordingly to showcase SAP’s four core principles: Simplicity, high performance, openness, and modern interface. SAP’s goal was to make SAP BPC more modern, easier to navigate as well as make its software easier to use.
