SAP BPC 5.1 Standard Functionality (like Business Content)


Dear SAP CPM experts,

I like to pose this question to our SAP BPC 5.x experts.

We are kicking off a BPC 5.1 implementation for planning and consolidation for a global finance initiative. Not wanting to start from scratch, we like to get a detail understanding as to what is available out of the box in addition to the report, input templates, and FX translations. When SAP sales team did a demo here they mentioned that there are out of box functionalities in regards to Business Process Flows, Applications (HCM, Finance, Sales, etc), Dimension design, etc.

We just want to confirm what this standard functionality is as we have not been able to find any documentation and are getting conflicting messages.

Specifically we need some clarity around the following items that are either delivered for immediate use, or are not delivered and need to be set up from scratch, etc.

1. Business Proces Flows (BPF's) - do any come out of the box, like were shown in the Demo?

-- Planning? Consolidation? Administration?

2. "applications" that come out of the box, and if so, what condition are they in (i.e. plug -n- play or modification required)

-- ex finance, capex, human capital, sales, etc.

3. Does the performance dashboard come pre-configured, or just a shell that the on-site team has to complete.

Thanks in advance for your input. Points will be rewarded.
