SAP has recently announced the support of Microsoft for its SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consilidation application.
For those that don’t know, this application is based on the software developed by OutlookSoft (acquired by SAP Business Objects in 2007).
This version of SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation, developed for the Microsoft platform, integrates with Office 2007 and SQL Server 2008, and provides business users with a single solution for planning, budgeting, forecasting and financial consolidations.
So why would your organisation use these tools? Well, these types of applications are often required to help organisations fulfill legal and regulatory requirements, as well as help management make more informed decisions.
The application is also available for small to midsize organizations under the EDGE portfolio.
