Group reporting supports the computation, creation, and disclosure of consolidated reports that provide information on the performance of a corporate group and consists of topics such as consolidation, reporting and analysis, and plan consolidation.
The figure below depicts how group reporting as part of SAP S/4HANA is integrated with SAP Group Reporting Data Collection and SAP Analytics Cloud and is followed by an explanation:
SAP Group Reporting Data Collection
SAP Group Reporting Data Collection helps you gather financial data for your business units. The app is hosted on the SAP Cloud Platform and relies on data such as master data and allowed breakdowns from group reporting within SAP S/4HANA.
Contained within SAP Group Reporting Data Collection are the Report Designer and Data Collection apps. You can design your own input reports using the Report Designer app or use the predefined input reports. You can use these input reports to collect data as part of your data preparation for consolidation.

SAP Analytics Cloud
The integration between SAP S/4HANA and SAP Analytics Cloud creates live data connections and depending on the report enables analysis of periodic or year-to-date (YTD) values of actual, plan, forecast, and variance data. For example, in the reports relevant for planning analysis, the balance sheet statement supports YTD values whereas the profit and loss (P&L) statement and cash flow statement support periodic values. For actual reports, both periodic and YTD values are supported for the P&L statement and the cash flow statement.
