    I think it will be better to provide the context related to your question.

    Doing some suppositions I think:

    Ad Hoc reports I think is related to ability of SAP BPC to provide to Business users to create at any time basic reports without any help from IT or from implementation team.

    KPI solutions I think is reffering to what we are calling dimension formula where you can calculate a dimension member using an MDX formula .

    Hi,

    As Sorin has explained, AD HOC reporting is like reporting at the run time. The users can just open a template and change the CV to see records as per their requirement. They dont have to create any report from scratch. Just change the CV and they can see their records.

    KPIs are nothing but the various members, on which the planning is done. In most of the cases, these members will be a part of the account dimension (obviously, it can be part of other dimensions also, depending on the business). Lets say, you are doing a SALES planning and your KPIs can be rate, quantity, etc. Then these rates and the quantities can be considered as your KPIs. In simple terminology, KPI is an indicator which actually tells the business, whether the business is doing good or bad. The users would like to keep a watch on these KPIs of the organization.

    Hope this helps.
