SAP BPC Integration with S4 Hana Cloud

Dear Experts,

I heard from SAP (horse's mouth :) ) earlier that S4 HANA cloud is going to have connectors for SAP BPC 10.1 / 11 etc. Is there a formal paper / documentation on this topic?

What I have seen so far is there is a paper which talks about the old approach / traditional approach of using extractor 0FI_ACDOCA_10 to connect and fetch data for BPC.

What happens then with Real Time Consolidation RTC ? It will not leverage S4 HANA cloud transaction data at real time??

So far I have seen S4 Hana cloud 1708 version has got connector for SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning.

https://news.sap.com/sap-s4hana-cloud-1708-release-highlights/

What I also understand is SAP has got a new product S4 Hana cloud consolidation? (Most likely this could be the solution for S4 hana cloud customers)Though I doubt if it is as robust and mature product like BPC / RTC.

Please let me know the integration options for S4 Hana cloud with BPC (on premise).

Best Regards,

Rakesh

    I'm not aware of SAP plans on this, but from a RTC perspective I think it would only be possible if you could create SDAs for the transactional and master data to your RTC environment. Although RTC was built to work on an S/4 environment, in theory you can make it work in combination of different environments if you manage to real-time capture the source systems information. Otherwise I'd just go with normal BPC.

    Regarding the S/4HANA Cloud Consolidation, not sure if you checked this blog:

    • Thanks Lucas,

      What I understand from your response and other inputs is technically its not possible, though don't know about future.

      Also, I think SAP is proposing / will propose S/4 Hana cloud consolidation instead BPC , and Business Objects cloud for reporting / data warehousing where S4 HANA Cloud is implemented.
