Hi all -
Scenario: International complex consolidations client, across N countries, FI solutions on multiple ERP releases, with at least one legacy system to consider. [my current world]
u2022 Consolidation - SAP Business Planning and Consolidation u2013 BPC (formerly OutlookSoft)
u2022 Financial Consolidation - Business Objects Financial Consolidation (formerly Cartesis)
Some call Cartesis the Cadillac of Consolidations, where you do complex consolidations, with BPC being a consolidations tool for the more basic scenariosu2026.
Keeping in mind there are changes to BPC at the end of 2008 [data services, integrated model], and again at the end of 2009 [combines with other EPM components].
Do you know will happen with Business Objects Financial Consolidation, and if we should advise a client to do that, or BPC?
If BOBJ: What are the BOE server & Universe requirements are for using BOBJ Financial consolidations, and what report tools can be used against it?
Johannes - SAP have a roadmap for the use of consolidation (and planning) tools within SAP covering the BO tools, BPC (Outlooksoft) and SEM-BCS
