In a few weeks time, SAPPHIRE NOW, the most innovative cloud and technology conference, will take place again and as always, it will offer thousands of business professionals from all over the world 3-action packed days to learn about innovations from SAP. Of course, SAPPHIRE NOW offers a great opportunity to learn about Central Finance, so this text will give you an overview of the activities we have planned and the sessions you can visit to learn all about how to get started on finance transformation.

As I stressed in my last blog entry about how to become a disruptor without being disrupted:

Our unique Central Finance approach fully enables the CFO of the future.

It allows to pull data from surrounding systems to unify it in a single instance and quickly unlocks advanced reporting as well as central process execution from a single source of truth. Central Finance is not only the answer for finance management, reporting and analysis in the multi-platform enterprise, it is also one of the quickest and easiest ways to start the finance transformation journey and move to SAP S/4HANA, in a quick and non-disruptive manner.

Last week we hosted a webinar in which The Hershey Company’s own John Zimmerman talked about the solution and their transformation journey. The replay is available and an absolute must-consume!

With that preparation material, you are fully equipped to dive into our Central Finance Sessions at ASUG and SAPPHIRE NOW:
