SAP Webinar Series: Successful Transition to IFRS on SAP

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has mandated that by 2014, publicly listed companies in the U.S. will need to transition their financial reports to the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) from the current U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP) standard. For many, this impending transition is an “accounting” issue. However, this transition will have a significant impact on all operational areas outside of the finance department for all publicly listed enterprises.

SAP is presenting a series of four one-hour Webinars designed to help you understand the SAP strategy and road map, planning, implementing, and reporting for IFRS compliance using SAP solutions. Gain strategic insights from experts you need to prepare for transition from U.S. GAAP to IFRS. From this series attendees will:

  • Gain knowledge and insights you need to prepare for IFRS transition within your own organization or at your customers
  • Understand the IT and business issues and implications when transitioning to IFRS
  • Learn the SAP product road map and solution functionality to support IFRS-to-U.S. GAAP transition implementations
  • Learn from expertise and best practices based on how SAP implemented the solution
  • Learn about key resources, tools, and community support available from SAP to help successful transition to IFRS reporting and get ahead to properly transition to IFRS
