Overhead keys serve to calculate different overhead rates for different objects (such as the material being manufactured). Overhead costs are allocated to the cost objects based on the quantity or as a percentage of the direct costs. Runtime improvement: • Programs will typically only need half the time • Programs for overhead calculation read aggregated line-item information from SAP HANA instead of totals tables

  38. 38. Slide 39 Faster transactions and reports • Customers will not see any difference to the existing business processes; they will just run faster … can process more data in the same time Acceleration New capabilities • Customers will have additional options for reporting and analysis without having to change existing business processes • Includes Line Item Browsers and Virtual Info Providers Innovation … without disruption … without disruption • Facility in ERP that allows for use / leverage of SAP HANA as a secondary database • No changes to the ERP user interface, customizing or master data • Existing ERP transactions and reporting will function as-is • Accelerator capabilities can be selectively activated on a scenario level • The system will switch back to the ERP database where SAP HANA is unavailable. ERP functions and features will remain in-tact as today, just run at speeds without acceleration Try and decide without disruption © TruQua. All Rights Reserved.

All rights reserved. 46 TruCloud - FAQ Why TruQua’s TruCloud approach?  TruCloud is a predefined proven process which provides an accelerated quality execution based on TruQua’s proprietary setup documentation and load scripts Why Amazon?  TruCloud leverages Amazon AWS, offering the best combination of short-term commitment and hourly cost for non-productive use of a SAP HANA system in the cloud What about SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC)?  SAP HEC and TruCloud system setup and data loads are basically the same; however with HEC the customer would have to commit to minimum contract duration as well as supply extra efforts to coordinate the HANA setup and administration activities. The TruCloud solution cuts through all of this setup and allows the customer to “try” the HANA product almost as fast as HANA itself  SAP HEC is however highly recommended for all productive use Does SAP provide “try-end-decide”  SAP offers (fee-based) internal services to use SAP HANA systems, they are not optimized however for the try-and- decide HANA Finance Accelerator use case Additional Finance Acceleration scenarios  All generally available HANA Finance Accelerators scenarios are available. General Ledger, Cost Management, and Profitability template have been predefined for fast deployment. Additional setup costs may apply for deployment solutions other than General Ledger, Cost Management, and Profitability. Firewalls and security  Connectivity between the ERP system and SAP HANA in the cloud is responsibility of the customer. TruQua can assist in and help coordinate the enablement WAN and LAN performance impact  WAN and LAN performance do impact the efficiency of the HANA Finance Accelerators. While typically of low impact, TruQua can provide performance measurement services to analyze performance issues as well as document the overall performance gains obtained Regional availability  TruCloud is available in key SAP regions, for availability in your region please contact david.dixon@truqua.com
