SSM Aspects

Hi all ,

I have few doubts in my mind regarding SSM. I have a client looking for this application with a very complex org structure.It would be great if some one of you helps me to sort it out. These are my issues:-

1) The data needs to be delivered from SAP BI. The client has got around 700 hierarchy nodes. I dont know if SSM is going to support such complex hierarchies.

2) They need to have seprate alogrithms for calculating trend and trend deviation rather than provided by SSM. Is that customizable when the data is provided from SAP BI??

3) Is Drill down to such a complex hierachy structure is possible using SSM?

4) What option will be feasile for loading the data in SSM from BI ....using Queires or loading Cubes in the PAS database considering the performance issues.Is there are authorizations available for data loads from SAP BI to PAS.

5) Is export is possile only via pdf using capture functionality or there is any MS office integration as well. Is SSM going to be intergrated with Business objects tools like crystal reports and Xcelsius for better reporting in coming release???

Wating for you kind replies.

Thanks

Atul

    Atul,

    I would recommend that you get in touch with your local SAP contact to discuss these questions in detail. Strategy Management is intended to help focus attention on the key drivers and activities in an organization that drive its success. Although many organizations have very complex systems, Strategy Management can be used as a discipline to simplify. SSM also provides linkage to other areas or systems for users looking for more details.

    Beginning with SSM 7.0, there is an available connector to pull data from SAP BI to help populate the scorecards, objectives, and KPIs. Also with SSM 7.0 is Single Sign On, so authorizations and access are reflected and synconized to SSM.

    Calculated key figures from SAP BI have to be redefined in PAS if the calculation invokes ratios or percentage and there are tools within SSM to aid in this.

    Strategy Management does have drill down capabilities and suggest you have a more detailed discussion to lay out your client's complexities to discover what exactly would be necessary to accomplish their desires,

    It is possible to export to Excel spreadsheets as well as print or mail pdfs from the system.

    Strategy Management will have integration with Business Objects in the coming release to take advantage of the reporting capabilities.

    I have no doubt it could handle the STRATEGY management of the organization, it can provide a level of detail as well as send users to other systems.

    Regards,

    Bob

    hi Atul

    Starting from SSM 7.0 version we can install a note 1156224 which installs the BICA tool. this helps to connect to the BI server and makes the transfer of data from BI to SSM very easy.

    There is a provision for writing complex algorithms in the PAS. we can write the code as a procedure or we can create a virtual measure with the required calculations to predict the forecasted data.

    there is drill down functionality in SSM and i think it can be drilled down to a large number of levels.

    SSM 7.0 can be integrated with MS Excel and we can view reports there itself by directly logging into the server from Excel.

    hope this helps you. award if it helps.
