SAP Profitability and Performance Management is used in our organization to optimize our business performance and grow our profitability. It's cost-effective and it has been valuable to use in cost estimation, and planning [for] future through its simple to analyze costing models and allocations. The platform is at the root of our financial planning and helps us execute sound plans that assure our productivity.
  • It's reliable and executes profitability analysis using dependable models for modern organization.
  • Has helped us optimize our business and grow our profitability assuring our return on investment.
  • It's a world class platform and fits well in all organizations without any difficulties.
  • 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.
SAP Profitability and Performance is well suited in an organization/scenario where it aims to grow their profitability and optimize their business performance. It will offer strong financial analytics that are applicable in modern organizations and it will assure improved performance and enable purposeful marketing of your goods/services at prevailing profitable rate.

Currently, we use it to perform complex step down cost allocations, create complex profitability models, and detailed calculations for warranty reserve management and transaction-based accruals. We use the tool to address allocations required to support management reporting and to automate certain business transactional postings that we have done offline in the past. It is used by finance and IT currently. We plan to expand the number of use cases for PAPM in the next year.
  • 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.
  • Connectivity to SAP Analytics Cloud (this is supposedly on SAP's roadmaps to deliver in 2020).
  • The new tool has some bugs and quirks that need to be worked out. SAP is delivering enhancements on a regular basis.
  • Reports and queries.
  • Model Flow diagramming could work better and be visible for download or printing for training and MOC purposes.
  • Documentation is weak, both in system help screens and user manuals need to be more detailed.
PAPM is well suited for use cases requiring complex profitability and cost modeling where large volumes of detailed data are required. It executes calculations and allocation very rapidly at whatever level of detail is required (customer, product number, etc.). PAPM is not a reporting tool. Although it has some basic reporting functionality, the results of the models executed in PAPM need to be written to a HANA database to be accessed by reporting and analytics tools such as SAC, Tableau, or Business Objects.
We did get excellent support from SAP during our implementation project. We will see about the SAP support over the long term.
