SBN Finance Function Day

Start: 24/05 08:30

SBN Finance Function Day

May 24th, 08:30-15:30

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, Accoutning 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).
 
We are directing more and more of our focus on SAP S/4Hana and all the new functionality, 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. 
 
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.

A case for change toward Enterprise Planning at a leading consumer goods company leveraging SAC, S4 and SAP IBP

Moving from local and non-integrated processes to integrated Enterprise Planning across the organization connecting volumes and values and provide full financial insights, forecasts and planning capabilities. Enterprise Planning is a critical process to build a single version of the truth and converge to “one number”. Aims to produce aligned scenario-based plan which optimizes business and financial performance. It requires strong alignment across involved functions (Commercial, Supply Chain, Finance), to overcome  predominance of their own goals.
