Overall Satisfaction with SAP BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation)

SAP BPC is being used in reporting and financial departments at the customer end. We were also able to do financial consolidation with different parties through SAP BPC.
  • We have implemented SAP BPC 10 with one of our customers to achieve consolidation with their different vendors and to generate the budgetary reports and fetch the same data within different departments. With the help of SAP BPC, our upper management and financial team are confident with the reports, helping them make business decisions.
  • So far we have not seen any area where we are stuck or needed improvement, except where the data fetched over the intranet from different sourcing had failed to consolidate on the reports. The data should be fetched from any sourcing without any network leak to avoid missing data.
  • As this is the add-on for a business warehouse system (SAP BW) SAP BPC functionality had a positive ROI, allowing us to consolidate.
  • So far the customer using SAP BPC has not yet faced any negative impact on their ROI as it always gives you accurate and timely reporting with proper consolidation.
I have implemented SAP BPC-10 with U.S. as well as middle eastern region clients, and they are very happy to receive the consolidated reports. Also, the reporting is available in different terms which makes it easy to understand and use when making big business decisions.
I have worked with SAP itself to deploy BPC components to achieve the business goals for our US client. It was very easy, friendly and without any hurdles. We were able to configure and setup the functionality and we have generated the finaicial reports to broadcast the data for the internal department of our customer.
Fetching the data with fast speed and different ways of generating consolidated reports are the best parts of SAP BPC.
SAP BPC is well suited when you have many financial and managerial departments who make business decisions and need the same data consolidated. Ultimately, SAP BPC helps organisations consolidate large amounts of data. It is not well suited if the data being fetched is a small amount or has low leverages for the business, and/or it is not feasible to consolidate.
