Episode Description

The buzz: Now! If true "real-time” access to information is necessary for your Finance organization to be effective, they need to leverage in-memory technology for day-to-day and period-end processes. The benefits – instant insight to improve financial performance reporting and to predict the financial outcome of business decisions – can position Finance as a true strategic partner to the business. Are you there yet? The experts speak. Celina Rogers, CFO Publishing: “Computer people still are concerned with greater speed and bigger memories. But the challenges increasingly will be not technical, but to convert data into usable information that is actually being used” (Peter Drucker). John Steele, Deloitte: “The future is now.” Birgit Starmanns, SAP: “The key to good decision-making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter” (Malcolm Gladwell). Join us for the Impact of Instant Processes and Insight on Finance.
