Analysis for Office Boot Camp: The EPM Add-in and Analysis for Office are merging to form one SAP Excel Plug-in. Many BPC users are familiar with the robust and powerful features/benefits of using the EPM Add-in. Analysis for Office (AO) is a business intelligence (BI) and multi-dimensional data analysis tool that makes it easy to filter and manipulate data, identify trends and outliers right within Excel. AO allows you to share and present findings in live PowerPoint presentations with a direct connection to your various data sources – BPC, BW, HANA and other sources. Today, AO is the Plug-in that is used for BPC Embedded (strongly recommended) and BPC Optimized for S/4HANA Finance (required) implementations. Soon, you will have the best of both worlds as SAP combines Features and Functions from both tools into one Excel Plug-in. Join us for a full day hands-on workshop to explore the latest features, tips and tricks with the current version of SAP BusinessObjects Analysis for Microsoft Office. We will also provide an update on the convergence roadmap and discuss the best options based on several use cases. All registrants for this course will receive free access to the “Deep dive into SAP BPC 10.1 NetWeaver Embedded on Friday 23 June. The price of this course also includes free entry to the EPM Summit as well as EPM Summit Online.
