Question regarding Analytical and Transactional Apps

Hi All,

I have gone through the definitions of transactional and analytical apps in Fiori and some apps can clearly be classified as Analytical and some are clearly transactional - like creating a sales order.

But some apps are really murky - For example "Display Financial Statement".

SAP Classifies this as a transactional app. But to some, this is borderline analytical as well.

My question is - What makes this app transactional and something like "

Journal Entry Analyzer" analytical?

A few of these categorizations are a bit murky to me and would be great if you could help me understand SAP's reasoning for classifying them as they are.

Question updated below -

The Fiori app library describes the "Display Financial Statement" app as:

With this app you can display balance sheets and profit and loss statements for your companies using operational, local and global charts of accounts. These reports are generated on the fly by analyzing all the relevant line items. From these reports, you can also access the line items of a specific G/L account or customer/supplier line items.

This description just shouts "Analytical" to me. What factors pushed the classification of this app into the "Transactional" category?


Thanks!

Regards,

Shyam

Hi Shyam,

Fiori apps library has classified the application type, from the screenshot following the URL below and you can check only Transactional type apps or Analytical apps. If there is specified app not clear, you can check the document of this application.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the reply.

I know what SAP classified them as. But I just want to understand why "Display Financial Statement" is classified as transactional instead of analytical.

It is crystal clear why a "Create Sales order" app is transactional.

It is equally clear why a Journal Entry Analyzer" analytical.

I just want a justification as to what factor makes the decision to make "Display Financial Statement" transactional.

I've added on the question slightly with some additional comments. Please have a look.

Thanks!

Shyam

"Journal Entry Analyzer" and "Display Financial Statement" application.

Please sent them only a link to this tread as the community might be interested about the reasons behind this classifications. Maybe they need to add the Translytical category. This is the DB category in which SAP HANA is now put in. See: https://news.sap.com/independent-research-firm-names-sap-a-leader-in-translytical-data-platforms/
