SBN Finance Function Day

May 24th, 09:00-15:30

This is the day and venue for all finance people working in the finance organization, in the global business services or for those, who just have something to do with finance in your own organization, who would and could benefit from learning more about SAP ERP, SAP S/4Hana Finance and Analytics.
 
We are covering the comprehensive portfolio of the CFO like Financial Planning and Analysis, Accounting and Financial Close including statutory reporting and Business-2-Government reporting, Financial Operations, Treasury Management, Risk and Compliance.
 
We know that accounting is more or less at the heart of everything and finance operations or processes include I2P (invoice-2-pay), I2C (invoice-2-cash), FP&A (Financial Planning & Analysis), R2R (Record-2-Report), TRM (Manage Treasury).
 
Our focus is on SAP S/4Hana and all the new functionality and possibilities, which paves the way to the intelligent enterprise and more automated business processes and also opens up the system through more intelligent and user-friendly user interfaces to all the people with a role in the finance processes. 
 
Analytics and all new solutions in this area such as SAC (SAP Analytics Cloud), SAP DataSphere and Embedded Analytics are also focus areas for the Finance Function Day.
 
We are on a roller coaster of change and to keep up with the pace of change and adapt quickly to changes in technology and the business environment, we recommend you to join in and listen to experience from other companies also using the SAP solutions.

Sustainability Holistic Steering and Reporting (Presentation in English) [slides]
The world of ESG steering and reporting today is reactive, with limited data coverage and insufficient granularity, highly manual and with spreadsheet-based processes.  With the upcoming regulations, companies will have to move up the maturity curve quickly to build more confidence in their data and be able to comply, to fulfil external expectations and to support better decision-making as a competitive advantage. This presentation will cover how to leverage SAP technology for Holistic Steering and Reporting.

Pre-delivered business content or custom developed planning model? (Presentation in English) [slides]
SAP Analytics Cloud has now been on the market for several years and is today a fully mature planning solution. SAP delivers a lot of pre-defined business content to accelerate an implementation. Is this the best way forward for companies adopting SAP Analytics Cloud as their preferred planning tool or is it more relevant to build a custom developed planning model? Based on several years of experience with implementation of SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning, NTT DATA Business Solutions will come with their view on business content vs custom build planning models. In the session, experiences from several implementations, where business content has been used, will be introduced and reflection will be based on own experiences and feedback from clients.

Make your journey forward become your new standard – Forward to Standard (Presentation in English) [slides]
SAP is in some way imposing the "Clean Core" concept on SAP customers, prompted by the migration to S/4HANA. In reality, SAP is introducing a standard for all customers - a total ‘clean up’ that will make future upgrades, migrations, and releases much easier.

We all know the feeling of a freshly tidied apartment with everything in place. It's the same with your business processes. A total check-up that locates and removes obsolete processes has the great advantage that updates, which were previously a multi-day effort, can now be carried out within a few hours.

The journey to new standards is different from one organization to another. Let yourself be inspired by a selection of our customer companies  – that in different ways have started their clean core path in transforming critical financial processes. We will share with you how they have gone from process confusion - to process resolution.
