Review Booklet App: The reporting tool for standard reporting
In future, the Review Booklet app will be the source of truth in the integrated finance platform environment for controlling and accounting. From Q3-2024, the Fiori application will be adapted even more specifically to the reporting needs of the specialist departments through standardized formats and pre-defined content. Year-on-year comparisons and different analysis views (e.g. MTD, QTD and YTD), different foreign currency presentations will then be "built-in". In addition, various organizational hierarchies (e.g. profit centers and segments) with drill-through functions are natively on board.
Analytical Snapshots app for continuous accounting
From Q4-2024, power users can use the snapshot function to "freeze" historical statuses at any time and make them available to other users without having to communicate data by email. By comparing different historical statuses, a more in-depth analysis can be carried out with regard to the impact of updated data. The reports can be expanded to include corresponding snapshot comparison columns. This is made possible by adding a dedicated reporting ID to the data model.
SAP is consistently working on adapting its strategic Finance Platform Group Reporting to the needs of controlling and accounting in terms of transparency, depth of analysis, speed and "reporting convergence" with targeted enhancements. Both cloud users and on-premise users will be able to benefit from the new features. The prerequisite, however, is that the data model in ERP as the source of financial information is already adjusted to the increasing requirements in integrated accounting.
