Leveraging Capgemini’s template planning solution as an accelerator, Hampshire County Council (HCC) improves its financial planning solution and processes using the new SAP BPC 10.1 Embedded Model running on its SAP BW on HANA platform. HCC is one of the first public sector organisations to deploy the SAP BPC Embedded Model, which is emerging as SAP’s next generation business planning solution.
Client Challenges/Business Need:
HCC wanted to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the key financial planning processes of budgeting, in year budget adjustments, and forecasting through the development of a comprehensive planning and reporting solution.
Financial planning and reporting solution developed in SAP BPC 10.1 Embedded Model (on HANA) based on an extended version of Capgemini’s template planning solution. This solution extended HCC’s SAP BPC Standard (Classic) Model solution and processes, providing an even more flexible system used by multiple partners.
- Deployment of an improved, common, flexible, standardised solution across HCC and the multiple partner organisations served by HCC’s unique Shared Service Partnership
- Improved automation of the key financial planning processes enables a shift in emphasis towards data analysis and away from data collation
- Improved usability through moving to a web front end, allowing easier/wider solution access and conformity with HCC’s broader digital initiatives.
