xP&A is a planning approach that takes the best financial planning and analysis (FP&A) capabilities and extends them across the enterprise.

By providing you with a fully connected planning model, SAP xP&A transform planning​ across the organization, drives agile decisions, and enables you to plan with confidence.​

In a recent blog post I brought you the news that we have developed a series of new e-learnings, as part of the SAP Enterprise Support Value Maps, which take you through the major use cases and integration scenarios.

Now, we have taken this a step further by bringing all of these assets together into a new Learning Journey:

SAP Extended Planning and Analysis (xP&A)*

*Please note: Before you can access the link, a one-time registration in SAP Learning Hub, edition for SAP Enterprise Support, is required. A detailed step-by step guide to registration can be found here.


The aim of this Learning Journey is to provide enablement and support for customers to actually integrate these planning solutions.
There will be an initial part explaining high level use case and overall planning process.
The main aim however is to look into an actual integration scenario and show via short demos videos how the connections are set up, data flow etc.
So this is much less about positioning the solution, and more about supporting you as customers to do the actual setup.

The Learning Journey will continue to expand over the coming months to include more scenarios.
Right now we are covering topics described in my previous blog such as integration between SAP Analytics Cloud Planning with IBP, SuccessFactors, S/4HANA and more.
