SAP Cash Management and Liquidity Planner: actual/plan data difference


Where do you use Cash Management (CM)? Where do you use Liquidity Planner (LP)? How do I explain to business the difference between the 2(different purpose|)? You can see for both Actual data (CM: from bank GL accounts, logistics, LP: assign liquidity items to bank statements, customer and vendor line items in payment documents, Assignment from AP AR invoices) and Plan data (CM: memo records, LP: enter planning manually on liquidity items per period). CM is more for planning a few weeks (<13 weeks) , LP is more for mid/long term cash flow planning. Where or when do I use CM and where or when I use LP? The actual data is the same for both CM and LP in a different layout (CM more high level, LP more in detail). Please clarify.
