What is Business Planning and Consolidation?

Devote additional time to business growth and minimize the time spent on closing financial books
by implementing streamlined planning, ensuring a quicker, more precise closing process.

SAP BPC, or Business Planning and Consolidation, is a module within the SAP ecosystem that offers robust capabilities for planning, budgeting, forecasting, and financial consolidation. It serves as a comprehensive solution, providing a unified perspective of both financial and operational data. With SAP BPC, organizations can seamlessly execute Performance Management processes, enabling tasks such as adjusting plans and forecasts, as well as expediting budget and closing cycles.

SAP BPC offers support for two types of migration – SAP NetWeaver and Microsoft Excel. The Microsoft version of BPC empowers users to conduct modeling, perform application maintenance, import and transform data, create scripts, and more. By harnessing the capabilities of MS Excel, it delivers an Enterprise Power Management (EPM) solution, serving as a collaborative tool within a robust and widely accepted environment. SAP BPC not only supports existing Microsoft functionality but also introduces additional enhancement features, such as a drag-and-drop report builder, further enriching the user experience and expanding reporting capabilities.

SAP HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is an application leveraging in-memory database technology, enabling the swift processing of vast amounts of real-time data. This cutting-edge approach allows HANA to handle data processing by utilizing RAM storage rather than retrieving it from a disk.

Engineered to handle structured data from both SAP and non-SAP relational databases, as well as applications and diverse systems, SAP HANA excels in rapid data processing. It adopts three distinct styles of data replication—log-based, ETL-based, and trigger-based—tailored to the source of the data. The relocated structured data is directly stored in memory, facilitating rapid real-time access by applications utilizing HANA.
