Preparing Ad-Hoc Reports is Difficult and Relies on IT Skills

Finance teams frequently need to query SAP data to answer ad-hoc questions. However, SAP data are complex, understanding them requires significant expertise, and native tools including SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Business Warehouse (BW) require technical knowledge to use them. This leaves finance teams dependent on scarce IT skills to create and modify reports, resulting in delays and frustration

Native SAP Reporting Tools are Too Inflexible for Finance

Finance and accounting teams need to report and drill across multiple dimensions from the Financial Accounting (FI) and Controlling (CO) modules. However, native SAP tools,― like Report Painter and Analysis for Office, tend to be too inflexible for the needs of business users, who want to lay out information side-by-side for detailed analysis. For example, when analyzing costs, they want to investigate multiple cost or profit centers (combined views) by including a cost element combined with work breakdown structure, internal order, and other fields. Such data groupings are difficult with these standard SAP reporting tools.

Standard FICO Reporting is Limited

The standard financial reports provided with SAP tend to be inflexible and difficult to change without IT help. This leads many users to manually export SAP FI and CO reports into Microsoft Excel in which they can manually modify the layouts needed for their analysis. However, the reality is that downloading and formatting SAP data from even one report within Excel can take several hours.
