We pay attention to details to understand the business requirements better, to make more connections with the other models and provide future proof designs to fit the purpose.

Yes, there's more than one way to skin a cat, but there is only one way to deliver the simplest solution, and we work hard and push more to find it. This requires a bit of creativity, a bit of risk-taking and pushing the limits.

We work hard, and we come to the table ready. We do not like meetings where we discuss what to do. The meetings are meant for decisions, and those decisions are made with well-prepared options. We will be there to accelerate you.

Thank you for your question! We are happy to help. To get started, please provide us with some information about your requirements; you can contact us through our contact form (link) or by setting up a quick meeting(link) with one of our customer engagement consultants, or give us a call directly.

Preparation is required for every project in many aspects, and it depends on the type and length of the project itself. Our experts will contact you for the preparation steps and necessary actions beforehand. Meanwhile, you only focus on the goals and success criteria of the project.

It is pretty challenging to define a successful project. Assessment can be done in many aspects. From Notium's point of view, successful projects are those that meet business requirements and are delivered and maintained on schedule. Meanwhile, they are delivered and kept within budget and delivered in the expected business value and return on investment.

With many years of experience, we see most of the issues around getting the requirements and delivering fit-for-purpose solutions. Since SAP BPC is a tool that comes with very little pre-delivered content, it relies heavily on functional and technical developers' understanding of the tool and the project approach. Mostly, we see some delivery problems, misunderstandings, or the delivered solution solves a problem, but it creates another problem in the long term even after all the SIT and UAT work. We are proud that our industry-focused delivery teams and architects will provide you with the best guidance on your journey.

No, with our unique project delivery approach, we will train you during the project. By the end of the project, there will be many show&tell sessions for you to understand how the tool functions and how you can utilise most of the tool.

The one of common PaPM use case is Cost Allocation. Although it depends on the business process, there are many methods of making cost allocations. SAP Controlling module offers options as standard functionality within the system for plan and actual allocations. PaPM offers a much more flexible and high-performance solution with the same functionalities. PaPM also has ability to combine data from different systems (SAP or Non-SAP), enrich your existing data and send the results to different systems. PaPM provides a clear database that avoids storing an unnecessary number of rows in tables (e.g. ACDOCA), with the ability to repeat calculations until results are finalised and write allocation results only at the desired time. Unlike standard SAP CO functionality, PAPM does not limit the number of segments in allocation cycles.
