Excerpt from Cash Management in SAP S/4HANA by Praveen Gupta and Mary Loughran.
With the many changes involved in an SAP S/4HANA implementation, it is critical to understand the new functionality and the different options customers have in using it. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the three components of SAP Cash Management on S/4HANA. We introduce the reader to what has changed and what has stayed the same. Subsequent chapters describe the functionality in more detail. SAP’s Cash Management powered by SAP HANA (also known as Cash Management on HANA and Advanced Cash Management and CM on HANA) is a suite of programs including Cash Operations, Bank Account Management (BAM), and Liquidity Management that upgrade the cash and liquidity management functionality in ECC. The Cash Operations and Liquidity Management components enhance existing ECC functionality with improvements in functionality and the introduction of Fiori tiles. The Bank Account Management component is completely new with S/4HANA. Figure 2.1 shows where the components of SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA fit within the end-to-end Treasury and Risk Management solution map.

With the move to SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA, SAP has significantly changed the user interface, and has upgraded the functionality in certain areas. Another change we notice in the area of Cash Management is a move from configuration to application-side processing. This is seen with the move from house bank accounts being an IT configuration step in ECC to master data in S/4HANA. There are other examples of this, which we cover throughout the book.
Next, we take a cursory view at each of the components of SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA. Subsequent chapters are devoted to exploring the functionality of each of the components in detail.
