PlaidXL is a reporting tool created to help efficiently build reports based on results from PlaidCloud data and SAP PCM costing models. To do so, PlaidXl reads PlaidCloud and SAP PCM data, writes data onto PlaidCloud and SAP PCM, retrieves hierarchies metadata from PlaidCloud and SAP PCM, and retrieves data and WriteBack from the PlaidCloud tables and SAP PCM data cubes.
While PlaidXL does not replace the existing reporting tools of PlaidCloud and SAP PCM, it augments them.
PlaidXL enhances and eases your data analysis, report, collection, processes and allows you to immediately interact with data from PlaidCloud and SAP PCM—and you can do all this through Excel. Even the input data that is commonly found in Excel spreadsheets can easily be transfer from spreadsheets to PlaidCloud tables or PCM models using the WriteBack feature on PlaidXL.

PlaidXL’s benefits include creating highly customized standardized reports and quickly modifing, extending, and replicating existing reports at only a business-user skillset level.
PlaidXL is useful in many circumstances:
