DATEV had previously used different systems for creating reports. Individually, these could only be expanded and adapted to new requirements with a great deal of time and effort. The creation of reports on the basis of these customized Excel and Access solutions was a process involving numerous manual tasks with significant potential for optimization. In addition, this system landscape did not provide any support for treasury functions. The aim was therefore to establish a central reporting platform for all treasury data in as short a time as possible, which would cooperate closely with the existing SAP system and offer comprehensive reporting and reliable liquidity planning.
All financial positions in SAP CM and SAP TRM are now continuously and automatically transferred to Nomentia. In addition, the existing revenue and expenses positions from the controlling forecast are transferred into incoming and outgoing cash flows and are imported into Nomentia as well. A set of rules was defined for that purpose which can be configured by users at any time. The tight schedule and the dependency on simultaneously running projects posed a planning challenge for the project. Nevertheless, the originally planned go-live date for the Nomentia reporting platform was met. DATEV now has one system where all treasury data is collected and flexible reports which can be used to analyse this data.
- A central reporting platform with all data relevant to the Treasury department
- Display of the complete financial status and cash flow forecasting in Nomentia
- Data from upstream systems (such as SAP) are continuously and automatically captured
- No manual capturing of data is now necessary
- Simple modifications on a centralised basis make it possible to reflect new requirements
“Despite a heterogeneous system landscape, Nomentia provides us with an effective tool for ensuring transparency and for flexibly analysing all of our treasury data.”
