Hi Kish,

Just wait for some time as SAP is going to release BPC 7.0 module in Q2 2008. Meanwhile you start learing in BW.

The last SEM product I wanted to discuss is SEM-BCS for consolidations. Obviously, BCS is a very functional product that SAP has developed over many years now, with many customers, for management and legal consolidations. Due to the breadth and distribution of SAP's customer base, it has been enhanced over time to successfully support the language and regulatory requirements for all regions of the world. While the BPC solution for consolidations has not yet had the chance to go through the same scale of implementations to get to the same degree of robustness as BCS, it does provide business users with flexible, decentralized administration and reporting. That does not make one product more capable than other, it's just that again, each product has its core strengths, and which one is right for you will depend on your specific scenario and requirements. However, you should feel totally comfortable investing in either solution today as both the consolidation capabilities of BPC and SEM-BCS are going to continue to be invested in by SAP. You may have seen the recent enhancements to SEM-BCS in Enhancement Package II, and more enhancements will be coming in future Enhancement Packages too. Of course the long term goal of SAP is to have one consolidations product, but the timing of when this will happen has not been finalized yet, which is why you will see SAP continue to be investing in both product lines. As I said, you should feel totally comfortable investing (or your prior investment) into either of these products.

What is CPM and what is happening with SEM and BI Integrated Planning?

Unless you have strong consolidations accounting experience and knowledge, it is very difficult to become a good BCS consultant. I suggest if you decide to pursue BCS consulting, talks consolidations accounting classes and/or read books on this topic thoroughly.
