SAP introduced SAP RealSpend, a mobile app providing visibility and access to up-to-the-minute budget and spending information.

The app, based on SAP HANA cloud platform, pulls data from core financial reporting systems so line managers can perform ad hoc spend analysis and other on-the-fly calculations for live business processing.

Developed at SAP Labs Berlin/Potsdam Germany using design thinking principles and input from finance professionals and SAP end users and managers, SAP RealSpend enables line managers to monitor and actively manage budgets and actual spend.
