SAC Cash Panel
Multidimensional Real-Time Data Analysis for Corporate Treasury
Static reports, long processing times, poor meaningfulness, difficult readability and incomplete representations: Unfavorable deficits of this kind can still be observed frequently within corporate Liquidity Reporting (a subfield of Treasury Management). Despite the increased recognition of Treasury Reporting in recent years, the options for analysis and reporting lag far behind the technological possibilities until today: In most cases, the standard reporting within conventional Treasury Management systems proves to be insufficient resp. too inflexible now.
For example, features and dimensions from operative systems cannot be added in a simple way. Extensions and adaptions both demand high development efforts because data models can be modified only very hard within the transactional system. In view of that, the SAC Cash Panel by s-peers presents itself as an optimum, efficient and up-to-date solution in form of a standardized reporting platform (dashboard). This platform offers real-time access to all cash data and depicts the results of accomplished analyses comprehensibly by use of visual standardization – combined with interactive functions.
Together with the high performance of the SAP Cloud platform, the dashboard’s standardized notation concept based on the IBCS® ensures that all requirements regarding Cash Management can be met with maximum efficiency and relevance for success – currently and especially in future as well.
Our SAC Cash Panel offers you a quick and safe start into Analytics plus all advantages of the IBCS® standardization.
Functions and Advantages
The design of our SAC Cash Panel is oriented at the International Business Communication Standards (IBCS®) which base on the rules of the reference work SUCCESS by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rolf Hichert. The internationally established IBCS® are conceptional, perceptional and semantic guidelines for visual presentation in reporting and formal business communication.
Thanks to specific use of this standardized notation concept, the dashboard communicates the reporting information in such a way that all factors relevant for success are provided to the respective addressees with maximum precision and transparency – ensured by recipient-specific preparation.
Optimum diagram/chart selection based on the IBCS® significantly increases the meaningfulness of the single reports and thus of the complete dashboard. Simultaneously, the visualization of the reports is reduced to the relevant information. This guarantees that the most important aspects can be read and interpreted quickly despite the high complexity.
Treasury Reporting on IBCS® basis therefore offers you a pure, accurate and transparent overview of the current situation by:
- Reduction to the essentials
- High information density (incl. opportunities to compare)
- Systematic standardization via homogeneous visual language
- Consistent structures and clear messages
- Quick capture and pattern recognition for the reader
With regard to technology, the SAC Cash Panel bases on the SAP Analytics Cloud. This new SAP product enables the comprehensive use of Business Intelligence (BI) and of analytical technologies within the complete organization – including functions which permit also the end users in the specialist divisions to carry out their own analyses quickly by Self-Service BI.
The functionalities for analysis, reporting and planning are bundled in one single platform with standardized data base. This allows smooth communication between different organizational roles (incl. functions for teamwork and comments).
SAP ensures operation and support of the Cloud solution. Thanks to the SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) model, the software is purchased as a service with a rental charge per user. This fee respectively includes release upgrades, support by the SAP hotline (year-round 24/7), mobile apps for tablets/smartphones, process documentation, eLearning and WIKI. At the same time, you save all additional costs resp. investments for operation, maintenance and IT infrastructure (hardware, DB).
The dashboard’s main task is to filter the essentials out of countless data and variables in a recipient-specific way. This also includes individual presentation in visual terms. Standardized data visualization therefore plays a key role: Adequate preparation and presentation are absolutely necessary for understanding information as quickly and accurately as possible – and therefore for making better (planning) decisions.
The approach of the SAC Cash Panel combines different data sources to a completely structured and thus very robust model. The BI solution thereby permits i. e. the integration of market data so far not available in the Treasury Management system. Linking to existent TMS or ERP data is possible as well. Moreover, the dashboard can bundle various reporting events and can associate them directly with different KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). This reveals correlations between the KPIs immediately and permits flexible analyses with highest possible speed.
In line with her/his requests within an authorization concept (transparent according to BI Governance), each user can individually visualize, filter, structure and share her/his Liquidity dashboard with other staff members. Thereby a chat function permits mutual communication about the respective information.
All in all, speed, momentum and effectiveness are thus increased significantly – especially regarding the members of the specialist divisions who have the best general overview in terms of Liquidity data and corresponding correlations.
As a modern Self-Service product, the SAP Analytics Cloud can be handled intuitively. This enables the Treasury Divisions to generate their own reports without separate support of the IT department. In real time – and with direct access to the associated data model of the operative BW transactions.
Furthermore, options for Predictive Analysis can be interlinked with current and historical data. The result is a statistical model which i. e. permits the development of precise Scenario Analyses. In turn, this creates new possibilities to inspect complex scenarios with various interdependences in real time and over different risk types.
The concept of the SAC Cash Panel by s-peers bases on the SAP Analytics Cloud. This solution efficiently combines the four essentials for all tasks of a Liquidity Manager:
- Standard Reporting
- Ad-hoc Reporting
- Dashboard Reporting & Visualization
- Forecasts / Scenarios
