    Wow - good initiative - how about adding sample projects for the following as well:

    1. Planning - Sales, Capex, HR
    2. Consolidation - Legal etc.
    1. Sales planning and capex and high-level HR planning is covered in the rapid-deployment solution called  Extended Financial Planning (BPC 10.x NW) and is free content to licensed customers/partners of BPC.  

      Consolidation scenarios are covered in RDS: Financial Close & Disclosure Management (BPC 10.x NW/MSFT & FC)

      Contact mark.p.burke@sap.com if you want one-on-one guidance in this area.  Thanks!

  4. There is an alternative way to write a Rolling 12 (time) EPM report, without needing to go through all the Excel formula mechanics noted in the EPM demonstration above.   See the rolling time methodology deployed in the financial planning model within the SAP planning rapid-deployment solution (RDS) called Extended Financial Planning (BPC 10.x NW) or contact mark.p.burke@sap.com for a discussion on best practices in this area.     The RDS is free content to SAP customers of BPC so you can download the model and documentation and explore for yourself.

  5. For a very robust example of driver-based planning using EPM add-in and BPC Logic, please review the strategic financial planing model within the SAP planning rapid-deployment solution (RDS) called Extended Financial Planning (BPC 10.x NW) or contact mark.p.burke@sap.com for a discussion on best practices in this area.     The RDS is free content to SAP customers of BPC so you can download the model and documentation and explore for yourself.

    Hello Mark,

    We are planning to implement BPC 10.1 NW on HANA for one of our customers.

    While going through your blog, I found that there is a readily available solution i.e. Environment which is available for  customer with different business models like sales planning, capex planning, HR planning and consolidation too.

    Can you guide me how can i download this Environment and related documentations.

    How can i use this environment for my implementation for a telecom domain client.

    Are this environment available domain specific like power/telecom/retail    or there is only single solution.

    thank you!!

     

     

     

     

     

     

    1. Hello:

      The main BPC RDS planning models are here:  Extended Financial Planning (BPC 10.x NW), including G/L Financial Planning, Strategic Financial Planning, and Capital Planning.

      The BPC RDS consolidation models are here:  Financial Close and Disclosure Management (BPC 10.x NW)

      Please setup a meeting with Mark.p.burke@sap.com (Mark Burke) and I can walk you through the solutions.  I am based in the California time zone.

      Thanks,

      Mark Burke

  8. Lots of great info here! Thank you !! Any suggestions where i can get more information on customizing Data Manager packages? I'm trying to default the time dimension value so that I can schedule the calc_account and BCF packages.
