Learn VBA for MS Excel – Video Course Review

From a little less than a year, I had plans to learn VBA basics for Excel. As an SAP BPC Consultant I am not expected to be a master of it, but there is no doubt it is a useful programming language in a variety of cases. As a rule of a thumb, SAP BPC Consultants should avoid extensive usage of VBA, especially for sophisticated calculations. However there are circumstances where you will need to automate tasks such as changing chart source data, chart title, copying excel formulas to dynamic input forms, etc. Initially, I was …

From my observations, BW knowledge is a highly demanded skill for BPC consultants no matter you are coming from finance or IT. Well, for IT guys it is mandatory.

SAP Cloud for Planning and BPC

In February 2015, SAP released SAP Cloud for Planning. It is a new EPM product widely advertised as the collaborative tool for Planning and not less importantly it is web-based with Spreadsheet look and feel.

There are also other similar questions which directly and indirectly affect my current and future work. I am sure that I am not the only one who is confused, so I will share my thoughts on research I made. …

SAP BPC Certification – The Successful Path

SAP BPC Certification - The Successful Path

Last week, I managed to pass the BPC Certification Exam with 91%! Hooray :). After two weeks of extensive preparation and about two or three weeks of practicing different consolidation and planning scenarios, the feeling was nice . Considering the fact I am relatively new to the BPC (about six months experience so far) makes the success enjoyable for me. There are probably places where you will find questions & answers for the exam, but I do not get the idea of having Certification without real hands-on knowledge to perform your duties. So, please if …
