Equinors journey piloting Planning in SAP Analytics Cloud

In this session Equinor will be sharing their experience with planning in SAP Analytics Cloud so far, both using BPC embedded planning and SAC native planning.

Vi kjører foreløpig en pilot på «(BPC) Embedded planning» i SAC, dette er altså i praksis at vi har flyttet vår SAP IP (Integrated Planner) løsning inn i en SAP Analytics Cloud kontekst. Dette er jo kanskje ikke revolusjonerende teknologisk skritt med byr på oppsider vi finner attraktive:

  1. Vi beriker et veletablert og suksessfullt konsept med haugevis med funksjonalitet i SAP som visuelle elementer, filter, navigasjonsdynamikk etc…
  2. Piloten «bypasser» faktisk F&C, vi gjør et nytt fremstøt direkte mot operasjonell ledelse og ser for oss å lage så brukervennlige applikasjoner at de enkelt kan legge inn sine prognoser der selv. (NB! Vi driver jo med en form for bottom-up, operasjonell planlegging, tett integrert mot actuals). 
  3. Context - Advanced Planning and Prediction (APP) project in Equinor
  4. Experience with SAC native planning
  5. Experience with SAC BPC embedded planning incl. demo
  6. Lessons learned, key take aways
