S/4HANA Margin Analysis, Predictive Accounting, and Continuous Close


This session will provide an overview of changes in S/4HANA Margin Analysis as compared to the SAP ERP Profitability Analysis component. We begin with a comparison of both products, highlighting how S/4HANA innovation removes legacy pain points such as reconciling value fields to the general ledger. Then we’ll discuss how Margin Analysis can predict future gross profits, as well as provide more granular cost analysis prior to period-end closing.
