Basic question

Hi Experts,

I am really new to PPM.

We have planned to have SAP BPC for SALES/EXPENSE planning and PPM will cover CAPEX and OPEX. So we need to make them connected in the behind of scene.

SAP BPC is NW version so it will be on BW, now I have a question reg. PPM.

Does PPM work on BW?

What DB PPM use?

PPM seems to be RDB architecture, anybody can guide me from architecture point of view? We need to find out what should be customized?

Sorry for the basic question.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

YH Seo

    Hello,

    Your thought process is very right. But you will have to remember for the above process to work, there is no direct integration between the BPC and PPM and hence it will be entirely custom development to interface BPC and PPM nevertheless SAP futuristic way is to move towards BPC for planning and PPM for operational execution of projects and then you should be able to reconcile both the planned and operational $.

    "Does PPM work on BW?"

    Yes PPM and BW can work together to give excellent reporting capabilities. The latest release is PPM 5.0 and is NW based.

    "PPM seems to be RDB architecture, anybody can guide me from architecture point of view? We need to find out what should be customized?"

    I suggest that you hire a PPM consultant as the scenario you are talking is definitely cutting edge and apparently there is no in house knowledge regarding PPM implementation. The consultant can also guide you through capturing the CAPEX and OPEX in a better way using cProjects.

    Hope this helps!
