F&A First: How SAP Customers Can Drive ‘No Regrets’ Transformation

Thursday, June 9, 2022 — 10:00 AM PT

From hybrid work and cybersecurity to enabling new business models and managing regulatory changes, finance and IT leaders have a long list of priorities placing significant demands on their departments. Added to traditional responsibilities like monthly close tasks, reporting, and change requests, CFOs and CIOs are faced with chaos, talent retention concerns, and a lack of time to manage it all.

As a result, the urgency for finance transformation is greater than ever. Organizations are investing in technology and optimization initiatives, and CFOs are questioning HOW they should innovate rather than IF.

In this webinar, we’ll share how SAP customers have used a ‘F&A first’ approach to establish a valuable transformation foundation on the path to SAP S/4HANA. Solution experts on SAP and BlackLine, including Mike Polaha, former SVP Finance Solutions & Technology at Johnson & Johnson, will discuss how:

  • Focusing on continuous and efficient actual results is “no regrets” work that sets the stage for advanced enterprise capabilities

  • Cleansing and preparing legacy data for migration to a target model enables data as an enterprise asset

  • SAP financial close solutions by BlackLine enable efficiency, effectiveness, and agility

This webinar is eligible for 1 CPE Credit.
