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.

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.

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.
