This is your chance to learn from others and share your thoughts on the topic. 
  • POC of a greenfield/bluefield approach in setting up Finance in SAP S/4HANA to really reap the benefits of the platform. An interesting demo of how you can showcase the major benefits in S4 by doing a greenfield approach as opposed to a brownfield approach with a special view on finance, including parallel ledgers, new asset accounting, Business Partner, Credit Management, Cash Management and, Fiori and embedded analytics etc.. and including currency.

Human Experience Management Track

In line with the overall theme for the User Conference this year "drivers and catalysts for change" , we are planning and collecting presentations for the HR-track like the following examples (the program is still a "work-in-progress" and not complete):

  • Strawberry, formerly Choice Hotels, has set itself the goal of being a pioneer in the Hospitality industry. Vice President SSC Finance, Elsebeth Rivertz, will tell you more about how Strawberry leverages modern technology, SuccessFactors and Sariba as an advantage in their growth strategy. 
  • Customer will share how they benefit from OpenText integrated into SAP SuccessFactors business processes.
  • Recruting and onboarding in SuccessFactors - what and how to make the most of the underlying functionality in SuccessFactors. This Meet The Expert Session with Marit Søderberg from Sariba will begin with a quick review of best practice related to these two modules, before we open up for a round of questions and answers from you in the audience.
  • The real benefits of SuccessFactors as a suite with integrated modules. Have you thought about why it is an advantage to have a common system for HR? And do you know what benefits you can get from bringing all HR-related processes together in a fully integrated system? 
  • Knowledge exchange on SuccessFactors initiated by DFØ 
  • AkerAnna - AkerBP's virtual assistant and the very succesful implementation and roll-out of this solution in AkerBP from one who has been very close to the solution from the beginning.

Because how are you going to make sure you have the right person in the right position in the future, when you don't know which positions to fill? Businesses are changing. Competence is changing. With AI and robotization, development is happening fast, and none of us know what the future looks like. Listen to Karoline Walen from Sariba tells you more about what talent management technology already exists today, while giving you a sneak peek into what you can expect from SAP in the future.
