SAP's In-House Banking solution is the new innovation available with 2208 release of SAP S/4HANA Cloud and in this blog post we see some comparison with In-House Cash solution which is available since 1998.
SAP has been working on continuous improvements, bringing in new innovations from In-House Cash to In-House Banking.SAP In-House Cash is an internal banking solution for corporates based on SAP's banking software SAP Bank Customer Accounts (BCA). The main component of SAP In-House Cash is the in-house cash center which processes payments between the various subsidiary companies. The in-house cash center is basically a virtual internal bank where subsidiaries hold current accounts. It is available with SAP S/4HANA on premise.
SAP In-House Banking is the new innovation, an internal banking solution, where subsidiaries can maintain in-house bank accounts with headquarters, available from this year, with SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2208 release. It works with both SAP S/4HANA Cloud and on premise.
While there are similarities between the two solutions, there are some differences too. Both solutions aim to reduce the number of external bank accounts and bank connectivity cost with internal banking. With all the latest innovations, In-House Banking offers benefits over In-House Cash and these benefits are shown below.SAP’s In-House Banking functionality works with both SAP S/4HANA Cloud and on premise. It can be activated with scope item 6BP in Best Practice Explorer for SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
In-House Banking is fully embedded in the Advanced Payment Management solution (scope item 4MT) and derives all its benefits like central monitoring and approval of payments for SAP and non-SAP systems.
