The SAP standard does not grant analysis tools such as Embedded Analytics access to the liveCache data of PP/DS. CONSILIO PP/DS Analytics eliminates this deficiency and thus enables important evaluations.

Are you an SAP PP/DS user, are you already using SAP S/4HANA and would like to be able to better assess the quality of your planning processes? In addition, access to your PP/DS data in liveCache is important to you? With the standard-compliant extension CONSILIO PP/DS Analytics, we offer you a comprehensive solution for these requirements.

Customer-specific development on CONSILIO PP/DS Analytics possible


SAP PP/DS uses liveCache technology for detailed production planning, where the data is not initially stored in the S/4HANA database. However, the evaluation options in the PP/DS area have an unclear structure and are static, which is why they only allow limited deep insights into the planning quality. Those who want to focus on their planning with analysis tools such as embedded analytics come up empty, as these tools expect database information for the evaluation. So far, SAP does not offer a solution for this problem in the standard. CONSILIO has identified this shortcoming and, with its PP/DS Analytics solution, bridges the gap between liveCache and the database in full compliance with the standard.


ACCESS TO PP/DS DATA - The standard-compliant CONSILIO extension extracts the PP/DS data from the liveCache and makes it accessible at database level in quasi real time.  Users can thus access both order-specific and capacity-specific data and evaluate it in a targeted manner as well as in real time.

ANALYTICS - PP/DS Analytics enables dynamic, KPI-based evaluation of planning quality with tools such as Embedded Analytics. Predefined content supports the analysis. If required, custom KPIs and reports can also be created. Due to the powerful in-memory technology of the S/4HANA database, analyses are possible in real time.


  • Access to PP/DS data at database level
  • Analytical evaluation in real time  
  • Clear graphical visualization options - for example in the form of dashboards
  • Easy access to KPI reports via FIORI tiles
  • CONSILIO PP/DS Analytics is fully integrated into SAP S/4HANA
  • Simple and intuitive use through a user-friendly interface
  • Possibility to download reports in Excel
  • No additional license costs for S/4HANA Embedded Analytics


With CONSILIO PP/DS Analytics, your planning quality can now be evaluated in a high-performance manner and visualized in a contemporary way using KPIs. CONSILIO PP/DS Analytics is a standard-compliant extension that allows you to access your data easily and quickly in PP/DS as well.
