Plenary Session: SAP Simple Finance 1503 – Accounting and controlling step closer together

 Janet Salmon, Chief Product Owner for Management Accounting at SAP AG, will introduce the latest changes to accounting and controlling in SAP Simple Finance 1503. SAP is in the process of reinventing SAP Financials using SAP HANA to enable new programming paradigms and SAP Fiori to provide a new user interface. One of the most fundamental changes is the decision to bring all the transactional data into a single table that covers Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Asset Accounting and the Material Ledger. In this session we’ll look at how these changes will affect Controlling, discussing how accounts and cost elements will merge, what you can expect to see in Reporting and Planning, and how account-based CO-PA has been enhanced to provide better Profitability Reporting.

Presented by Janet Salmon, Chief Product Owner for Management Accounting at SAP AG  

While it’s hard to miss marketing information on SAP Fiori and SAP HANA, there are actually lots of other innovations in SAP Controlling you may be overlooking. Many of the innovations that went under the SAP HANA umbrella can actually be used on any ERP system. In this session we’ll cover:

  • Using virtual InfoProviders on ERP table structures to enable new reporting in SAP Material Ledger and Profitability Analysis (account-based and costing-based)
  • Activating some of the business functions delivered in recent enhancement packages, such as cross-company actual costing, parallel cost of goods manufactured, operation level costing, stock in transit, and many more
  • Leveraging cross-company actual costing to allow SAP Material Ledger to transfer values across company codes and stock in transit as a logistics enabler
  • Using parallel cost of goods manufactured and parallel asset accounting to extend parallel accounting functions originally delivered with new general ledger

Walk away with tips for modernizing your company’s CO-PA and SAP Material Ledger reporting.
