Questions on BI-IP Scenarios for Business Planning and actuals extraction

How to leverage Integrated planning for SAP ERP or R/3 planning processes?

Scenario COPA: Why would I want to plan "Sales and profit planning" in BI-IP instead in COPA. Which is the better option?

Scenario LIS-SOP: Why would I want to plan "Sales and operation planning" in BI-IP instead in LIS-SOP. Does plan data need to be retracted LIS-SOP. Why would I take the bottlenecks like extracting actuals then retracting data back to LIS_SOP. Does SAP provides standard extractors and retractors to extract actuals and to retract plan data.

Scenarios in CO: CO-OM-CCA(Cost center planning), CO-OM-OPA (Internal order planning), CO-PC-PCP (product cost planning), CO-OM-ABC (Process Planning).

Which is the better option? Planning in Controlling(CO) or planning in BI-IP. Standard extractors and retractors available?

_Scenario BCS:_ For Planning in BCS(Budget control system) in Funds management should i go for BI-IP or not. If Funds management is not active then how to do budget planning?

Is there any areas, where we can leverage BI-IP, in Business planning?

Thank You.

    Hello Mani,

    the main reason is that in BI-Integrated Planning is that you can do integrated planning. You will have one application that you can use for all of your planning.

    Hi.

    IP has many advantages such as flexibility in planning levels, web interface (is customer wish), standard functions, planning programmimg language built in etc ...

    It is very hard to answer to your questions - each one of them should be discussed deeply.

    I can say that COPA, BSC has own standard retractors providing good integration between IP and ECC.

    Regards.
