  10. 10. 10 High Performance Analytic Appliance: HANA SAP HANA transforms businesses by streamlining transactions, analytics, planning, and predictive data processing on a single in-memory database so business can operate in real time. IN-MEMORY means all data is stored in the memory (RAM). There is no time wasted in loading data from hard disk to RAM. Everything is in-memory all the time which gives the CPU quick access to data for processing. COLUMN STORAGE vs. ROW STORAGE – SAP HANA is a column oriented database. Storing data by column results in better compression than conventional row storage. It also performs well while query processing since queries read only the columns which are required. NO PRE-AGGREGATION– Pre-aggregation is no longer required. Therefore, users do not have to wait hours to get the data they need. Flexible ad-hoc analysis can be performed at any time. WHY SAP HANA?– SAP HANA enables businesses to make smarter, faster decisions through real-time analysis and reporting combined with dramatically accelerated business processes. The lack of delay between insight and action results in a “real time business”.

  22. 22. 22 G/L Accounts / Cost Elements Secondary cost elements exist in the G/L as well.
  23. 23. 23 COGS Posted to G/L by Cost Component Total value of material shipped to customer is posted to a single COGS account in the G/L. Visibility to COGS by cost component in CO-PA only. Some clients opted to create a custom program to restate COGS in the G/L by cost component. Typical COGS Posting
  24. 24. 24 COGS Posted to G/L by Cost Component Total value of material shipped to customer is posted to the G/L by cost component. Cost components can be mapped to G/L accounts 1:1 or at a more summarized level. S/4HANA Finance COGS Posting

  26. 26. 26 Production Variances Posted to G/L by Category Total production order variance is posted to a single G/L account. Variance categories visible only in production orders or CO-PA. Typical Production Order Variance Posting
  27. 27. 27 Production Variances Posted to G/L by Category Variances posted to the G/L by variance category. Variance categories can be mapped to G/L acconts 1:1 or at a more summarized level. S/4HANA Finance Production Order Variance Posting

  29. 29. 29 Typical Overhead Calculation Typically, overhead is calculated at month-end either individually via transaction KGI2 or collectively via transaction CO43. As such, no absorption of overhead was posted until month-end. In order to see more frequent overhead absorption, the following options were availalbe. Perform overhead calcuations on a more frequent basis (i.e. weekly or daily). Use activity types in the routing to absorb overhead instead of using a costing sheet.
  30. 30. 30 Real-Time Overhead Calculation In S/4HANA Finance, overhead can be applied in real-time to both material consumption and activity postings. Overhead is applied automatically during the production order confirmation. S/4HANA Finance Production Order Confirmation
  31. 31. 31 Real-Time Overhead Calculation S/4HANA Configuration
  32. 32. 32 Optimized Transactions for Period-End Processing New transactions are introduced for period-end processing of production orders. New transactions result in 10% - 40% performane improvement.
  33. 33. 33 Fixed Asset Line Items In previous versions of SAP, the depreciation posting in the G/L was summarized by cost center. In S/4HANA, a separate line item is written for each asset. S/4HANA Finance Depreciation Posting
  34. 34. 34 Enhancements in Profitability Analysis Account-based COPA becomes the default in S/4HANA Finance. S/4HANA functionality such as the following reduce the need for costing-based COPA. Split of COGS by Cost Component in the G/L Split of Variance Categories in the G/L Costing-based COPA continues to exist and be supported. However, new enhancements will focus on account-based COPA. Customers can continue to use account-based COPA and costing-based COPA in parallel. Costing-based COPA is still required for multiple valuations of COGS.
