PCM Is Ending … Now What?
SAP mainstream maintenance for Profitability and Cost Management (PCM) ends December 31, 2020. Current PCM customers have a few options; 1) Migrate to the new SAP PaPM solution on HANA, 2) Replace with another cost modeling solution, 3) Do nothing and continue to run PCM without maintenance.
- Migrate to the new SAP PaPM Solution
SAP HANA customers, especially those running S/4HANA, will most likely want to consider migrating to the new SAP Profitability and Performance Management (PaPM) solution. Read more about PaPM.
- Replace PCM With Another Solution
There are a small handful of cost modeling solutions that are candidates to consider. See our Software Intelligence to learn more.
PCS Consulting has also partnered with CostPerform, one of the leading cost modeling software providers, to provide an alternative for PCM customers not considering migration to the new SAP PaPM solution. We chose to partner with CostPerform because it can replicate existing PCM models with minimal impact on inbound and outbound data management systems and is very competitively priced.

- Continue to Run PCM Without Maintenance
This may be a reasonable short-term strategy for some PCM customers, but only for a limited time and with some risks.
PCS Consulting does not sell the CostPerform or any other software. We partner with all of the leading software vendors to help provide the best solutions for our clients. We have intimate knowledge of the SAP PCM and CostPerform software, and also the new SAP Profitability and Performance Management (PaPM) solution.
