SAP Business Planning and Consolidation (SAP BPC)

Overall, the implementation went well but needed maintenance was more than adverstised.

There was friction between 3rd party vendors and software vendor who were helping us to implement the new solution. Some of the decisions made were not the best ones we could have made if we had better information on product capabilities and limitations.

Implementation went well - Need strong Consulting team to help with conversion.

New Version of Product is very good. Relatively easy to run legacy reports using the updated version.

Flexible solution for multi-ERP landscapes that allows for growth

We needed a single tool for consolidations and financial planning that would accomodate an ever-changing ERP landscape due to M&A activity. SAP BPC provided the best overall solution to meet these needs. It is not the simplest tool available in the space. Since our core operating system is SAP ECC, and our core reporting system is SAP BI, the native integration to BPC was logical. The ability to develop other models, including a basic "upload" approach, allowed us to incorporate new acquisitions much quicker than in the past.

Pay attention to performance

Migration from MS 7.5 to NW 10.0 was fraught with performance issues. Underlying technologies are vastly different. The shift in workbook functionality was also a larger shift for business than originally anticipated.

Implementation long but successful, vendor product support is lacking

The product itself has great functionality and overall is easy to use. The vendor support is not very responsive or helpful. Implementation time was longer that I would have expected.

Preferred 3rd Party support for BPC

SAP support was expensive and without a lot of deep experience, so we worked primarily with 3rd Party support

SAP BPC running on Microsoft Azure

We're deploying BPC 10.x on an Azure environment using Windows. The solution meets the business needs, but there seem to be frequent updates and issues with the Excel reporting plugins, and our vendor partners report the 32 bit versions are more stable, lagging behind our desktop environments (we're now running Excel on RDS where we're supporting 32 bit Excel). Overall it's a workmanlike product and the business likes the reporting environment in Excel more than other SAP reporting technologies (like Business Objects webi).
