Your Finance Processes in Real Time - How Fast Is Fast Enough?
April 27, 2015
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Zoom! Marathons. Formula One. Internet downloads. Streaming video. In scenarios like these, we intuitively know faster is always better. But for Finance, how important are true real-time processes – or is “near-real-time” fast enough? To help you find the answer, we’ll explore which processes can benefit from real-time information, what your Finance team can do with real-time in-memory technology not possible in the past, and the benefits of having true real-time information at your fingertips. The experts speak. Celina Rogers, CFO Publishing: “The practicality of technology may distinguish it from art, but both spring from a similar, distinctly human yearning” (Nicholas Carr). Tony Rogan, Accenture: “Some are born to sweet delight; some are born to endless night” (William Blake). Birgit Starmanns, SAP: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough” (Albert Einstein). Join us for Your Finance Processes in Real-Time: How Fast Is Fast Enough?
