SAP Profitability and Performance Management provides many integration plug points with various SAP and Non-SAP system. I am explaining here the SAP PaPM integration with SAP Business planning consolidation (BPC) and SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC).

This document will describe one of the ways to have a single interface for PaPM Users to provide input for PaPM calculations in SAC story, run PaPM functions through SAC and get updated results back in SAC story.

There are many ways through which  SAP PaPM data get updated and trigger calculations.

It certainly helps PaPM Business users not to navigate many screens and get everything available on single platform.
