Starting situation – different data sources, inconsistent reports
Not all data for internal reporting came from one database; individual reports were fed directly from the operational modules. Such parallel data management resulted in differing results, because values such as turnover were present redundantly in various modules. In addition, there was no group-wide planning system.
Areas of application – operational and strategic
The solution makes the front end for internal and external reporting available based on data from SAP BWs. Management and controlling use a unified application to access standard reports according to predefined views for balance sheets and profit and loss statements. In addition, the application feeds planning data via R/3 tables to the BW.
