PBS archive add on CCOPA

SAP’s profitability analysis component CO-PA provides users central reports on the cost and revenue situation of your company based on products, markets, customers, or company areas. Here, different planning scenarios can be calculated by using SAP BI together with profit center accounting. CO-PA is considered a comprehensive and flexible reporting tool. Very extensive data volumes can result from the highly granular characteristics. CO-PA line items are generally archived in order to reduce the load on the operative ERP database. On the other hand, the archive data has to be taken into consideration accordingly in reporting. This is performed in the SAP standard via sequential "additional" reading of the archive files which can result in extremely long report runtimes. The PBS archive add on CCOPA enables access based on archive index structures to archived CO-PA line items via the characteristics, and navigation to documents of other SAP modules such as accounting, sales and distribution, and production, assuming the respective PBS archive add ons are also used in these modules.

Performance Optimization using column-based Technology

In the case of very large amounts of COPA archive data, long report runtimes cannot be avoided when the "classical” ADK technology is used. The combined use of the PBS Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI) together with the PBS archive add on CCOPA solves the runtime issue. By using column-based technology, all fields of the archived COPA line item data can be indexed. This enables direct and extremely fast access to the data afterwards. Time-consuming access via the object table CE4XXXX in the ADK method in the case of large volumes of archive data can be avoided completely when NAI is used. With NAI, reports can be executed directly online instead of in the background. Drilldown from reports to the corresponding line items can also be performed very fast. For users of SAP profitability analysis this means time savings and an enormous reduction in workload. A further advantage is the high degree to which the PBS archive indices are compressed in the NAI database. Savings in memory space provide a significant reduction in costs.
