Financial Planning And Analytics Capabilities For SAP Analytics Cloud

SAP announced new financial planning and analysis (FP&A) capabilities in the SAP Analytics Cloud solution that are embedded with SAP S/4Hana Cloud.

They provide finance professionals with a best-in-class planning and analysis application and eliminate the need for separate planning, analytics and financial products. This complete solution for finance includes support for profit and loss, balance sheet and cash flow planning and allows for easy data collection with SAP S/4 Hana Cloud and analytics with SAP Analytics Cloud.

FP&A teams often struggle with aligning operational and financial plans and bringing together financial and nonfinancial data throughout their organizations to establish one source of truth. This usually is because of stand-alone spreadsheets and planning products that are disconnected from underlying financial software.

A unified financial management suite that includes planning and advanced analytics can help FP&A teams create more agile planning and help them transform their organization into an Intelligent Enterprise.

“Prior to working with SAP Analytics Cloud, we had created enormous amounts of data, but lacked the tools necessary to plan upon and analyze it,” said Stephen Filreis, director, SAP Program Management, Pratt Industries, maker of corrugated boxes. “Now we understand where we should target our efforts to maximize our collections group’s effectiveness. SAP Analytics Cloud has allowed us to gain visibility into this critical information and get our business users closer to data with intelligent visualizations and meaningful reporting.”

SAP Analytics Cloud is a simple cloud application, which includes planning, business intelligence and predictive analytics capabilities that automate insights. Machine learning technology built into SAP Analytics Cloud highlights key drivers of variances, predicts forecasts and augments data.

It aims to tell the story behind the numbers by bringing planning and analysis together and eliminating the need to use separate planning, reporting and predictive analytics tools. Additional information on the latest updates to the SAP Analytics Cloud can be found in this post by Head of SAP Analytics Cloud Planning Matthias Kraemer.
