Join us for a regional event in Palo Alto that will bring together customers, partners, and SAP to share experiences and best practices for financials. We have an exciting agenda filled with opportunities to hear about other customers’ experiences; to network with peers involved in financial strategy, implementation, and execution; and to provide feedback for future roadmaps.

Focus Topics

  • IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) – Hear about about considerations for moving toward the new reporting standards and the SAP solutions that enable the transformation, including SAP General Ledger and SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation.
  • Accelerated Close—Hear about strategies for accelerating the time it takes to close the books and which SAP Business Suite applications and SAP BusinessObjects enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions will help you to streamline period-end processes, both in the local close for individual entities as well as the group close and considerations for consolidations.
  • Roadmap—Hear about SAP’s vision for financial solutions and provide feedback in break-out sessions on various aspects of the close process and your requirements for supporting IFRS.

Logistics and Registration

The event will be held at the Executive Briefing Center in SAP Labs in Palo Alto. There is no cost to attend.
