Review: Central Finance And SAP S/4 Hana

SAP Press published its first book on SAP Simple Finance—later renamed to SAP S/4Hana Finance—in 2015, and then the floodgates opened. Four full-length books and three E-Bites later, the publisher released its newest venture into the SAP S/4Hana landscape, a guide to Central Finance.

What will you learn?

As the first book on this solution, Central Finance and SAP S/4Hana shows readers how Central Finance manages financial data from multiple systems while still maintaining an existing ERP landscape. It offers best practices and practical information so that readers can make an informed decision about whether the solution is a good option for their business.

This book opens with a basic explanation of what Central Finance is, how it will affect SAP customers’ business processes, and the different deployment options. Then it dives deeper, giving step-by-step instructions for implementing Central Finance, including system setup, data integration, replication, and more.

It ends with a glimpse into the possible futures of Central Finance customers who want to use it as a bridge to S/4Hana. Whether you’re looking to integrate third-party systems, implement full finance and logistics functionality, or completely transform your financial platform, this guide has the information you need.

Other highlights include:

  • Financial processes
  • Operations
  • Master data management
  • Reporting
  • Mergers and integrations
  • Digital transformation
  • Business cases

Who is this book for?

SAP customers, partners, and consultants will find value in this guide whether they are using Central Finance as a long-term solution or temporarily as a way to migrate their financial processes to SAP S/4Hana. Anyone with questions about how Central Finance works and what it will do for their financial landscape will want to invest in this book.

At 458 pages, this guide draws from the knowledge and insights of three highly experienced SAP experts: Central Finance global solution owners Carsten Hilker and Javaid Awan, and TruQua Enterprises’ SAP S/4Hana practice lead Julien Delvat. With these three pros guiding your Central Finance implementation, you’re sure to end up with a fully transformed financial landscape!
