The Financial Accounting - Financial Instrument Accounting Integration ES bundle is a quick, streamlined way of aggregating pricing data for wide-ranging types of financial instruments, such as mortgage loans, stocks, or bonds. Data is shuttled into a subledger that summarizes the values for each type of financial instrument. After the data is aggregated, it's sent on to the general ledger using the enterprise services in this ES bundle.
The Financial Accounting - Financial Instrument Accounting Integration ES bundle leverages enterprise SOA by providing enterprise-service based communication between SAP Bank Analyzer and the general ledger.

Audience

Banks that need to pinpoint values for a wide range of financial instruments will find the Financial Accounting - Financial Instrument Accounting Integration ES bundle helpful. The bundle shuttles prices for individual instruments into a subledger parsed into categories, such as bonds, that's then sent on to the general ledger via the services in this bundle. The subledger keeps the summarization process lean and clear, saving computation time and yielding a clear snapshot of each financial instrument. Changing values can be quickly and easily tracked.

How To Use This ES Bundle

In a fast-changing world, tracking the changing worth of each financial instrument is more important than ever. These values can quickly fluctuate by country, bank branch, or profit center. Financial instruments such as stocks or bonds can rise or fall dramatically in just a few days.

Previously, there was no automated way to seamlessly track this process. Financial instruments were valued as a whole on a system's general ledger, but there was no separate subledger to track individual ones. As a result, banks couldn't quickly access the financial summaries for particular accounts or products or branches, for example.

The Financial Accounting-Financial Instrument Accounting Integration ES bundle speeds the process by offering a means of efficiently tracking each instrument. Data is grouped into categories, such as bonds or even by bank branch, making the process extremely granular. Banks can immediately pinpoint branch profit or loss or gauge profit or loss based on a particular financial instrument, giving them greater control over the assets managed. The result is that the financial instrument accounting process is faster, more informative, and easier than ever. Subledger data is seamlessly aggregated and passed through to the general ledger, without having to search for separate records.

This ES bundle provides communication of financial instrument accounting information from SAP Bank Analyzer to the general ledger via SAP Bank Analyzer's General Ledger Connector, a tool used by administrators. The General Ledger Connector invokes the Notify of Accounting Documents enterprise service; it is up to the service consumer, whether SAP ERP or another system that includes a general ledger, to consume the results of this asynchronous service.

Use Case 1: Sending Financial Instrument Accounting Information to the General Ledger

The SAP Bank Analyzer serves as a subledger for financial instrument accounting. This data must be aggregated and sent to the general ledger. SAP Bank Analyzer can be set up to send such subledger information to the general ledger periodically using the General Ledger Connector. When the user (or the batch process) triggers the upload to the general ledger, it invokes the Notify of Accounting Documents enterprise service. This service sends the data to the general ledger, but it is up to the consuming application, whether SAP ERP or another system running the general ledger, to provide a service consumer to receive that data.
