With over 350 sessions related to the Finance audience and Line of Business this is shaping up to be the most important, informative and comprehensive SAPPHIRENOW ever for finance professionals. 2015 will be our biggest presence ever showcasing how SAP Simple Finance and our entire Financial Management solution portfolio is enabling our customers on their transformation journey to take their finance function to the next level.
Some of you reading this may recall during SAPPHIRENOW in 2014 we announced the initial launch of SAP Simple Finance powered by SAP HANA. This year at SAPPHIRENOW2015 you can hear from actual customers on how they’ve adopted SAP Simple Finance to take them on their path to finance transformation since that groundbreaking announcement last year. This includes presentations from several early adopters like La Trobe University, the first customer who deployed SAP Simple Finance in the Cloud via HANA Enterprise Cloud (read the announcement) to help build momentum for their own “Future Ready Strategic Plan” or Swiss Re who is also running the solution as part of its overall finance transformation program as well as many others.
For the 1st time ever 100% of our Theater Stage Presentations and Panel Discussions for finance are going be delivered by actual customers presenting their own transformation journeys by deploying SAP Simple Finance and our solutions across Financial Planning and Analysis, Accounting, Closing and Consolidations, Treasury and Cash Management, GRC, and overall Finance Operations. Additionally, there will be many other sessions, discussions and demos delivered by SAP Subject Matter Experts and Partners highlighting the latest innovations SAP has to offer to enable finance transformation and excellence including:
- The SAP Runs SAP team showing demos and having discussions of our own internal deployment of SAP Simple Finance in the Cloud via HANA Enterprise Cloud.
- Value Engineering discussing actual metrics and measurable business improvements that can be achieved with SAP Simple Finance
- A broad range of demos, presentations and discussions of our finance solutions powered by SAP HANA across Financial Planning and Analysis, Accounting, Closing and Consolidations, Treasury and Cash Management, GRC, and overall Finance Operations
