Component documentationIntegrated Business Planning for SAP Simple Finance, On-Premise Edition


The Integrated Business Planning for SAP Simple Finance, on-premise edition (IBP) applications provide a consistent view of the planning process. From the UI perspective, all planning applications can be accessed by a Microsoft Excel frontend to provide a homogeneous look and feel. There are no longer silos for the planning data since all planning data is contained in a real-time info cube of the local Business Warehouse (BW), which is optimized for SAP HANA. Actual data and master data are accessed directly in real time without any replication that would be necessary in a standalone BW.

  • Microsoft Excel 2010

  • SAP Business Objects Analysis, edition for Microsoft Office, version 1.4.

You have also defined the controlling area as a parameter value for the user parameter with the ID CAC in the user profile.
