  4. 4. ______________________________________________________________ 1. Executive Summary: The purpose of this article is to provide step by step instructions to implement real-time data extraction process to bring actual (or any data sets) from SAP ECC into SAP BPC NW 10.0 for planning, forecasting, budgeting and consolidation. Users will learn various mandatory steps that are required to implement data management process on SAP BPC on HANA and also several leading practices to acquire data using SAP HANA SLT interface. This document explains the following Required steps to identify data sets, tables, and columns in SAP ECC for SAP BPC planning and consolidation solutions Mandatory process that are involved to replicate SAP ECC data sets, tables, and columns in SAP HANA Key configuration of SAP BW system to access SAP ECC data sets using SAP HANA modelling capabilities Instructions to use real-time SAP ECC data (actuals) in planning and consolidation process through SAP BW functionality In this article, we are demonstrating the following key data management functions on a SAP BPC NW 10.0 on SAP HANA platform. We are providing a practical approach to implementation planning and consolidation solution: SAP ECC Data Structure SAP HANA Data Model SAP HANA Data Integration SAP HANA Data Mapping SAP BW Data Transformation SAP BW Data Load Scheduling SAP BPC Data Quality Check SAP BPC Data Validation Author: Yogendra Vaithilingam SAP BPC Consultant SAP EPM Community Member yogendra.v@gmail.com SAP EPM/HANA Community Service 11/05/20 Chief Architect: Jothi Periasamy SAP HANA/EPM/BI/EIM Community Leader SAP BPC/BOBJ/BI/MDM Domain Champion joesaran@gmail.com, (916)-296-0228 - Cell CloneSkills, Inc., http://www.CloneSkills.com , Info@CloneSkills.com , 1.800.836.8959, Page - 4
  5. 5. ______________________________________________________________ 2. Key Assumptions: Before we go further, It has been assumed that the user has basic knowledge and understanding on SAP HANA, SAP ECC data models/tables and also the enterprise performance management enabling technologies such as SAP BPC NW 10.0 , SAP ECC, and SAP BW. 3. Business Scenario: CubeInsights, Inc. a holding company has legal subsidiaries in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Singapore and India, and not all of them are wholly owned. Besides that, these subsidiaries do make intercompany transactions which need to be eliminated during the consolidation/close process. CubeInsights, Inc. does many acquisitions and divestitures during the year that has lead to a complex and lengthy close process. To speed up the financial close process, the company has decided to automate their consolidation process using SAP BPC NW 10. The SAP BPC implementation team at CubeInsights, Inc. has decided to explore real-time data replication capabilities of SAP HANA to bring foreign currency exchange rates from SAP ECC system through SAP BW system.
