Dear All,

with the release of the enhanced Financial Data Quality Analysis in SAP Readiness Check for SAP S/4HANA, the data collection for Financial Data Quality has undergone some changes. The selection screen of the RC_COLLECT_ANALYSIS_DATA report now offers the possibility to enable financial data collection not only by using Standard Mode, but also by providing a fine-tuned mode called Expert Mode which we want to explain in this blog.

You can toggle between standard mode and expert mode.

Standard mode:


 

Expert mode:


The expert mode enables you to customize the parameters of the execution for the Financial Data Quality check.

The expert mode contains four areas of customization:

Financial Areas in Scope for Analysis:
The analysis can be executed for all Finance areas (General Ledger, Asset Accounting, and Material Ledger) or only for one area.

Data Collection Mode for Financial Areas:
There are two possible analysis modes to be specified: sequential or parallel analysis.

  • Sequential Analysis: This mode is selected by default. It allows analysis to start in sequential way

  • Parallel Analysis: This means that the analyses for the financial areas (General Ledger, Asset Accounting, and Material Ledger) are started at the same time.


Number of Parallel Jobs per Financial Area:
In this section, you can define the number of jobs to be triggered by financial area. Based on a calculation of available background processes in the system, we provide a recommendation about the number of jobs in total and for each financial area.
Calculation: Available background processes = total number of available work processes - 20% (safety margin)

Number of Parallel Entities to Be Analyzed per Financial Area:
The entities represent the scope per job. In this section, you can specify the number of parallel entities to be analyzed per single job per financial area:

  • For General Ledger, the fiscal year entity is considered, so the analysis will be performed based on fiscal years. By default, two fiscal years will be analyzed in a single job for this financial area.

  • For Asset Accounting, the company code entity is used, so the analysis will be performed based on company codes. By default, five company codes will be analyzed in a single job for this financial area.

  • For Material Ledger, the valuation area entity is used, so the analysis will be performed based on valuation areas. By default, ten valuation areas will be analyzed in a single job for this financial area.
