2042908 - Set Up RFC connection from CRM to BW for BPS Planning

You want to set up BPS planning in Marketing Planning (planning for marketing plans, campaigns, deals, and trade promotions), Account Planning and Opportunities. The key figure planning is performed together with the planning tool Business Planning and Simulation (BPS). This planning tool is completely integrated in Marketing, which means that it is automatically called when you enter key figure planning data in Marketing, despite being in another system. However you will need to set up the RFC connection from the CRM system to the BW system.

This article explains how to set up the RFC connection from the CRM system to the BW system. Furthermore this article contains some common issues related to the set up of the RFC connection.
