Financials Expert Posts New Article

Dedham, Massachusetts – January 10, 2011

SAPexperts announces a new article, “Make Profitability Management More Proactive with the SAP CO-PA Accelerator” available in their Financials Expert knowledgebase.

Online PR News – 11-January-2012 – – This article focuses on SAP CO-PA Accelerator and its conjunction with SAP HANA with advanced functionality as a real-time profitability database. Using traditional methods, profitability data can only be analyzed at quarter’s end due to the large amount of information needed to be analyzed on a real-time, or even weekly, basis. With the SAP CO-PA Accelerator, businesses can literally render hundreds of millions of line items in sub-seconds, providing essentially real-time access to profitability data.

Learn how to use the new SAP CO-PA Accelerator in conjunction with SAP HANA to analyze real-time profitability data. Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, “Until now many business users have relied on traditional, quarterly profitability analysis. Real-time profitability data allows customers to proactively manage in-the-moment actions instead of analyzing and reviewing data at the end of a period.”

The article is written by Carsten Hilker and Dr. Karol Bliznak.
