when to use IBP and BPC

hi gurus:

I ve been reading some articles about IBP and i d like to confirm with you that BPC (business rules, script logics, bpfs,models) is gonna be used just to implement legal consolidation projects and financial planning projects will be implemented using IBP.

    Hi Mah,

    You can still use BPC for planning and consolidation. What SAP is trying to do is, to bring the operational reporting and planning in S/4 via embedded BI and IBP and consolidation can be done in BPC.

      Hey Mah,

      About your question and initial question:-

      second question:-

      : profit and loss, balance sheet and cashflow,-- For P&L and Balance sheet can be done in IBP

      For cash flow planning- You have to use Liquidity planning tool. This will also need SAP Smart cash management solution of S/4 Finance

      and also run Forecast simulations, what-if analysis, Rolling forecasts, etc ??

      -- This is not available in IBP

      You can do this in BPC though.

      The next version of IBP should have these features too

      IBP does not compete with Hyperion, am I right?

      This is not the case. Hyperion is a plannning tool just like BPC.

      On IBP vs BPC- If you have SAP mainly in your landscape and have S/4 HANA as core system, and don't need consolation yet , then IBP is solution for you.

      If any of above point is no, you can go for BPC.

      Hope this helps,
