The requirements for business scenarios and systems architectures regarding planning and consolidation applications are very diverse. With the help of our two generic planning applications SAP Business and Consolidation 11.0 for SAP BW4/HANA and SAP Analytics, we have two powerful planning solutions which can be used to create generic and integrativetailored solutions for each customer scenario.

In this session, we will introduce you to the different applications and provide a Product Roadmap and Strategy Update.

Question & Answer:


Can the SAC Planning solution(s) write-back planning-results into the Source SAP ERP systems with the appropriate SAP Security that is normally enanbled via SAP BW Integration..?SAP SAC has a separate security concept. But this concept is related to the SAP security concept in general.
If we have BPC 11.0 for BW4HANA, can we deploy the planning on BW4HANA while deploy the consolidation component on S4HANASAP BPC 11.0 is running exclusively on top of SAP BW/4HANA. As part of S/4 HANA you will get a BW7.5x system as part of the so called embedded BW). As part of the BW7.5x software deployment, you will get SAP BPC10.1
Will EVDRE be supported for BPC 11.0?  We see this as an impediment for existing 7.x customers who want to upgrade.  Can you please comment on what we should tell such customers?The support of EVDRE is not planned
