S/4HANA Finance architecture: FICO modules combined

SAP FICO is a combination of the classic SAP Financial Accounting (FI) and Controlling (CO) modules. It automatically integrates the functions and processes of both modules into a single solution with all the benefits of S/4HANA to offer even more possibilities.

A key innovation is the unified database structure, known as the Universal Journal. It brings together finance and cost accounting data in a single ledger, providing a comprehensive and consistent view of a company's finance and accounting processes.

SAP S/4HANA Finance also extends the functionality of FI and CO with in-depth analytics options, integrated planning and analysis functions as well as optimized reporting capabilities. Plus everything is based on real-time data.

Module I

Financial accounting (SAP FI)

SAP Finance (FI) allows you to manage all accounting data in real time across all areas of your business.

Module II

Controlling (SAP CO)

SAP CO enables efficient controlling within your company, including the analysis, evaluation, and optimization of processes.

Module I

An optimal digital tool for decision-making: the CO module enables you to control costs, analyze profitability, and make decisions based on real-time data – all with the benefit of extended functions and an improved user experience:

  • Overhead Cost Controlling (CO-OM): for capturing, allocating and controlling overhead costs
  • Profitability Analysis (CO-PA): for improved allocation of costs and revenues to different profitability segments and better analysis of profitability relating to products, customers, and regions
