Unified view in accounting - integrating finance and controlling

Company management, especially CFOs and the finance department, need transparent and reliable figures for their decisions and meaningful planning. In many cases, this data is not available in the required quality because value flows are often interrupted or not continuous. This is usually due to historical reasons: In the past, it was assumed that the areas of internal and external accounting were independent of each other from a business point of view and required their own applications and data bases. This circumstance increased the reconciliation effort due to different and redundant data from different applications and sources. The Universal Journal in S/4HANA eliminates this problem. It bundles all relevant internal and external accounting data and transactions in one table (ACDOCA) and makes it available to the corresponding applications. Meet the challenge and create a unified view in accounting. Guarantee that finance and controlling have access to coordinated and standardized data that guarantees the "single source of truth" approach.


  • Harmonization of external and internal reporting
  • Fast close (month-end closing possible in 1-2 days)
  • Data reconciliation between different tables becomes obsolete
  • Data duplicates are eliminated
  • Less storage space is required for data storage
  • Data throughput is significantly higher
  • Embedded Analytics enables flexible, user-friendly reporting with access to enriched line items in Universal Journal
