Top customer reviews
The enterprise structure and business processes of procure to pay, order to cash, plant maintenance and quality management are explained in detail in Financials contest, which no other book explains in as much depth.
This book also explains SAP best practices inbuilt and contains tips and tricks to help you implement SAP by explaining the configuration steps in detail.
I highly recommend it for consultants and end-users who are trying to understand how SAP has changed over the years and learn the latest Financials ECC 6.0 functionality.
I have learned a lot from the book and continue to enhance my technical SAP knowledge.
Definitely worth the buy!
I am very disappointed after purchasing this book. I have not found even a single real-life case study. I am not sure what the author meant by highly-detailed examples? I feel I am cheated by the description of the book.(In contrast the author Manish Patel of "Discovering ERP Financials" did a great job in giving case studies for every chapter)
I would say that the Author has done well on chapters 3 (org strucute) and 4 (business processes of other modules). Chapters 5, 6 & 7 talks about optimizing the Financial Business Processes but I could not see even a single scenario that talks about optimizing. The Account Payable chapter is very dull without a mention of the new process to optimize invoice processing (use of OCR software/ e-invoicing). There is no mention of PMW for optimizing outgoing payments. The chapters just described the customizing nodes with a screenshot. The purpose of the configuration is not explained properly. For example 5.3.10 talks about defining pledging indicator that allows customer records in factoring procedure and goes ahead with the customizing path and a screenshot. Now, what is factoring procedure? Why do you use pledging indicator? Another example is 10.3.7 where the Author mentions that "Valuation of foreign currency is one of the least understood functionalities" and goes on with the customizing menu path and screenshot without trying to explain functionality. The closing activities are summarized in a single page and rest of the pages is filled with customizing menu path and screenshots.
I fail to understand for whom is this book intended for? From the title of the book it is for consultants who were involved in at least one implementation. If a consultant has SAP access why do you spend time in showing the customizing path, screenshot with text from the node? A consultant with SAP access can always find out the node and read the customizing node to find out what the node is about. What is required is WHEN and WHY you customize something.
I still feel the authors Quentin Hurst and David Nowak of the book "Configuring SAP R/3 FI/CO by Quentin Hurst" did a better job in explaining the configuration in a better way.
I understand the same Author (Shivesh Sharma) is coming up with another book titled "Optimize your SAP Controlling Implementation". I hope the editorial team makes sure that the title and content are consistent.
