SAP promotes Central Finance as a system which gives the possibility of running the financial and management reports. I understand the benefit of Central Finance in terms of data harmonization and one source of truth. However, comparing to reports available in ERP or S/4 Hana - what is the real benefit of reporting in Central Finance? Does it gives us additional (better) functionalities comparing to S/4 Hana?
We will implement S/4 Hana for the company where SAP is not implemented at all but in the same country we have 2 other business where we have SAP ERP implemented. We are considering the Central Finance to centralized these 3 businesses but I am wondering what are the real benefits in terms of reporting from Centralization?
