Financial Management

Financial Management

With the Financial Management application, you can allocate, track, and report on expenses in your organization.

The application provides a workbench, which is a visual tool that you can use to extract expenses from your general ledger, process the expenses, and map them to the functions used by IT. You also have access to a variety of reports to help you know exactly how much of your expenditures are related to IT.

The Financial Management application is available starting with the Fuji release. The modules in the Financial Management application prior to the Fuji release are now included with IT Cost Management.

How Financial Management Works

The Financial Management applications uses these components:
  • The general ledger: a list of your organization's expenses.
  • The fiscal period: the timeframe during which expenses were incurred. You can work with only one fiscal period at a time.
  • Your cost model: the underlying records that tell the application how to allocate expenses to the accounts in the IT chart of accounts.
  • The allocation engine: the core of the application that uses your cost model to calculate expenses and determine how to allocate expenses.
  • Financial reports and dashboards: graphical representations of the expense allocations that show you where your expenses are coming from.

With the workbench, you can manage your general ledger, choose the fiscal period, build your cost model, and run the allocation engine.

Note: The Financial Management application appears as Financials in the application menu, starting with the Geneva release.


The following application plugins are activated with Financial Management:

  • Fiscal Calendar
  • Financial Management Data Mart
  • Project Portfolio Suite, which includes:
    • Project Management
    • Demand Management
    • Test Management
    • Resource Management
    • Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)

    You cannot activate Financial Management without also activating all of these applications and their components, including tables, business rules, roles, and menus and modules.

    The PPS applications install several menus and modules to the application navigator, such as Project and SDLC (Scrum Process).
