    • The financial close: optimizing performance and driving financial excellence. This demonstration shows how SAP BusinessObjects enterprise performance management solutions allow you to gain quick access to valuable financial data, focus on more value-added analysis, cut costs across the close process, and improve the accuracy and integrity of financial statements. Prepare the close process. Philip Stone is corporate financial controller at Vision Motors. He uses SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation to prepare the scope of the next closing cycle. He reviews the flat consolidation scope for statutory reporting, including consolidation methods. He also reviews the hierarchical consolidation scope to be used for management reporting. Finally, Philip reviews the closing dashboard, which allows key stakeholders to monitor progress. Perform peer-to-peer intercompany reconciliation. Tom Smith is financial controller at West Coast Custom Cars, a subsidiary of Vision Motors. He uses SAP BusinessObjects Intercompany to reconcile intercompany balances directly with other subsidiaries. Tom sees that all balances agree, except for that of the SWorks Division. When he investigates, he sees that his counterpart, Simon, has entered invoices and added a comment. He checks Simon's invoices and finds a credit note for $50,000. He notices that the credit note is missing. After Tom adds the credit note, he can see that all balances are reconciled. At the same time, Philip, the corporate controller, can monitor the reconciliation process. He verifies that all subsidiaries have completed peer-to-peer reconciliation and then finalizes the process by freezing all activity. He can now load the reconciled balances into the financial consolidation application. Later, he reviews the status dashboard and sees that the package for West Coast Custom Cars has not been published. Philip will e-mail Tom to remind him to publish his package. Handle package submission. Tom Smith, the controller at West Coast Custom Cars, receives the e-mail from Philip reminding him to publish his package. He uses SAP BusinessObjects Financial Information Management to manage mappings and load data into the financial consolidation application. He selects the loading task for West Coast Custom Cars and executes it. The software has been configured to directly access his general ledger, with no need for intermediate flat files. During loading, the application performs data validation, using intelligent checks, filters, and automated rules. Tom waits till the loading task has completed before reviewing the job run details. He notices a validation issue, because no suitable mapping exists for one source account. He adds a new entry for the source account that maps to the appropriate target account and flow, and saves his changes. When he re-executes the loading task, it completes successfully. SAP BusinessObjects Financial Information Management automatically generates detailed mapping and loading histories for each user. Tom opens his newly loaded package in SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation. He can easily drill back into SAP BusinessObjects Financial Information Management to view underlying source data. Next, he runs the controls for the package and sees blocking controls. He can link directly to the appropriate schedule, where he can enter comments to explain the unexpected amounts. Tom re-runs the controls and sees that no blocking controls remain. Finally, he saves the
