SAP Reports Availability of New Cloud Solution

Sep 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- SAP AG announced the general availability of the SAP Enterprise Performance Management OnDemand (SAP EPM OnDemand) solution.

With mobile-ready applications powered by the SAP HANA application cloud, the solution enables business users to gain real-time insight into what is happening and adapt on-the-fly.

According to a release, the first options for SAP EPM OnDemand deliver: -Expense insight: Department managers can understand the details of anything charged to their cost centers, and can dispute and resolve miscoded, incorrect or duplicate expenses.

-Real-time profit and loss (P&L) analysis: P&L reporting can be delivered at any level of detail by allocating costs based on consumption of resources.

-Capital project planning: Both non-financial decision-makers and financial experts can establish the complete picture of the financial consequences of capital investment projects, and optimize the use of capital.

SAP reported that future targeted options are planned to be delivered on a frequent basis.

SAP EPM OnDemand is designed to complement existing SAP solutions for enterprise performance management (EPM) such as the SAP Business Planning and Consolidation application. The user interface (UI) offers an experience that is designed to reach a new set of users in the organization. Right out of the box, anyone can begin using the UI on mobile devices such as the iPad. In addition, the EPM add-in for Microsoft Office can be used with SAP EPM OnDemand as well as the 10.0 version of SAP solutions for EPM.

"SAP EPM OnDemand is the latest example of our leadership and how we are rapidly delivering innovation in the EPM space," said John Schweitzer, SVP and general manager, Analytics, SAP. "SAP is uniquely positioned in the market to build user-friendly on-demand solutions from the ground up. Built on the SAP HANA application cloud, SAP EPM OnDemand offers our customers another deployment option for extreme performance applications powered by SAP HANA. It's also complementary to — and extends the value of — the 10.0 version of SAP solutions for EPM with focused applications that are designed to be up and running quickly and help a broad set of users overcome particular business challenges."
