Data Integration Tasks Are Manual And Error-Prone

Your organization has multiple source systems which have been managed separately until now, each with its own language, logic, and syntax. Creating compatible formats would take an immense amount of manual work.

Where to Start with Migration and Implementations

Enacting a Central Finance implementation is a daunting task and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. This is only amplified with disparate data sources that need to fit into SAP structure.

You Don’t See the Full Financial Picture

Without drilldown capabilities and automatic syncing, it can be difficult for your finance team to get a full understanding of finances and to get the full value from SAP Central Finance.

Central Finance Transaction & Master Data Replication for SAP S/4HANA

Integrate non-SAP ERP financial transactions into SAP Central Finance

Rapidly connect to any source system and bring detailed, non-SAP ERP financial transactions in real-time into the Universal Journal in SAP Central Finance.

Pre-built source connectors are available for an expanding library of systems, covering key vendors including Oracle, Microsoft, Infor, and many others. Each source connector supports up to 23 transaction types (depending on the source system) which are extracted from the source, mapped into the required format for Central Finance, and loaded into the Universal Journal via the SAP-recommended SLT interface. Data connection via flat file is available to cover any source where a direct connector is not available, or where access to source ERP is not available. Additional source connectors can be developed upon request in as little as 4-6 weeks.

Drill to operational detail in SAP Central Finance

Let finance users see the non-SAP operational details behind Universal Journals using a native Fiori user experience.

Drill down functionality provides a seamless drill down from Universal Journal entries in SAP Central Finance to operational detail from source ERPs. While the key financial information is loaded to the Central Finance Universal Journal, accounting users often require the original complete transaction details for confirmation or reconciliation.

Our SAP Solution Extension for Central Finance loads transaction detail information into S4/HANA and allows for fast and seamless access to the data via Fiori apps, thus avoiding the need to train end-users in the use of multiple systems.

  • View original transaction detail for non-SAP sources
  • Enable complementary reporting on non-financial data (or combination of financial and non-financial data)
  • Maintain persistent transaction history even when source systems are not available

Sync changes back to the source in SAP Central Finance

Close out the AP and AR transactions in 3rd-party ERPs for central payments done within SAP Central Finance.

The sync back functionality enables the clearing of customer and vendor invoices in source ERPs as payments are executed in Central Finance. By successfully centralizing processes, customers realize a higher value of Central Finance as a shared service platform. However, some operational processes in source ERPs may depend on up-to-date customer or vendor balances. By writing back the shared customer or vendor payments to source ERPs, the original invoices and balances are cleared out. This keeps the original ERPs in sync with Central Finance.

  • Close AP/AR open items for Central Payment transactions
  • Keep customer and vendor balances in sync between sources and Central Finance
  • Maintain continuity of source system operational processes.

Deliver complete visibility of the data replication process

Comprehensive reconciliation reporting lets you track, audit, and compare postings between source ERP systems and Central Finance.

To identify any possible discrepancies, the application allows you to make a summary and detailed, transaction-level comparisons at five levels through the transaction replication process. Reconciliation reports available in Fiori and Analysis for Office show information including document exceptions, unposted records, and customer, vendor, and general ledger balances.

  • Includes five levels of reconciliation through the data replication process
  • Provides interactivity within Fiori and Analysis for Office and robust
  • reconciliation data model
  • Retains audit trail to track every data change during replication

Create master data foundation in SAP Central Finance

Accelerate the consolidation, initial load, and ongoing interface of master data for both SAP & non-SAP systems into SAP Central Finance.

Replication functionality quickly handles many of the issues of master data consistency across diverse sources, including SAP sources. Without resolving these inconsistencies, subsequent analysis in Central Finance will be suspect at best.

Our SAP Solution Extension for Central Finance extracts raw master data from all sources, matches and merges duplicates using machine learning, and loads the master records and mappings into Central Finance. By efficiently building and maintaining the master data foundation and mappings, the solution simplifies critical aspects of a Central Finance deployment.

Speed your transition to SAP S/4HANA

Connect and harmonize multiple source systems

SAP S/4HANA Central Finance aggregates all financial transactions into a powerful central system allowing companies to achieve full finance transformation and gain major strategic advantages. Our SAP Solution Extension for Central Finance interfaces data effectively and efficiently from multiple source systems.

Pre-built source connectors are available for an expanding library of systems, covering key vendors including Oracle, Microsoft, Infor, and many others. Each source connector supports up to 23 transaction types (depending on the source system) which are extracted from the source, mapped into the required format for Central Finance, and loaded into the Universal Journal via the SAP-recommended SLT interface. Data connection via flat file is available to cover any source where a direct connector is not available, or where access to source ERP is not available. Additional source connectors can be developed upon request in as little as 4-6 weeks.
