PBS archive add on CPCA and NAI – What a powerful team!

Profit center accounting in SAP provides valuable controlling data on the internal responsibilities of a company. A quick and easy analysis of this data is of considerable importance for cost accounting. Performance, flexibility and simplicity are key requirements for various business result evaluations, analyses and verification of individual company divisions. Such processes need to consider both – SAP database data and archive files.

Operational Intelligence with PBS Profit Center Accounting and NAI: Integrate operational PCA data from SAP DB and archive files

Hierarchical Display of Profit Center Groups

With transaction "Profit Center: Hierarchies" (/PBS/KE5ZH) we provide an analysis tool which exactly meets these requirements. The data is selected by controlling area and profit center group. The result provides a hierarchical group overview which you can analyse according to your individual needs. For example, you can branch into single list levels and drill down to line items.

The data which is to be analyzed from SAP database and archive files is replicated into a nearline database with the Data Replication Services (DRS) of the Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI). This ensures extremely short response times for the related analyses achieving a few seconds only. Thus, you nearly receive business warehouse functionality in an SAP ERP system! Other advantages of the PBS CPCA solution are the clear presentation of the results and the easy navigation therein. Furthermore, we reduce the system load of the primary ERP database.

The new transaction is part of the PBS archive add on CPCA and available from ERP release ECC 6.0. For the features described above, you need to combine it with the Data Replication Services that are part of the PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure.
