BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

The system is not always intuitive to a new user. However with some upfront training it is easy to catch on. A lot of the management is left in the hands of the users, in our company that would be finance. To us that is a great benefit, however, that may not work in all situations.

Pros

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

  • Dynamic reporting and consolidation of information from disconnected sources
  • Adaptability to needs of shifting business initiatives
Daniel Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Profitability and Performance Management

  • Data enrichment (complex joins, lookups, and derivations).
  • Complex allocations and calculations.
  • Operates at a very high speed without disrupting the host HANA environment.
  • Connectivity to BW HANA and BPC.
Robert Harper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

  • SRC had a delay in information until the month's operations officially closed and the data was fed into the system. Other products that I have used allow you to see activity throughout the month. Knowing that it isn’t final, you can still get a sense of how revenues/expenses are stacking up for the month, etc. In addition, other operational metrics, like Average Daily Census, Admissions, etc. should be able to be tracked daily, rather than having to wait until the month is over.
AJ Senff | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Profitability and Performance Management

  • We were forced to train some of our staff a bit as they faced various hurdles before getting familiar with the platform and using it efficiently.

I could train users to use the Business Warehouse within an hour or two. Also very easy to create reports and send web links to view the report. Exporting to Excel/Word/etc. was very simple and had good formatting.

Very long reports in SRC would take a long time to run (several minutes). However, shorter reports could be run quickly.

This is more a function of the training I received from the systems experts in my organization, not training from Business Objects/SAP. The training was rushed, without an agenda, and didn’t meet my needs as a user.

Alternatives Considered

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

Business Objects SRC is more flexible than other products and that is especially important in a company where each division is completely different in how they operate, their KPIs, and their operating functions. It allows finance to decide what information is important at that time and does not take months of IT resources to meet management's immediate informational needs. Reporting and budgeting is easily updated when there is an addition or a deletion of a line of business. Finance is allowed to dice the information in any way to satisfy the current needs of the business.

Return on Investment

BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

  • Thus far the BI team has been playing catch-up since our SAP implementation, as a good many important customer facing reports were left out of the implementation as a requirement for go-live.
  • The scalability and SAP data conversion are the real value.
Daniel Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Profitability and Performance Management

  • Helps us make sound decisions that positively impact our future.
  • Has simplified our financial planning process in our organization.
  • Our portfolio has doubled and grown immensely.
