With the progressive release of their HANA database stack to full blown S4/HANA, SAP is leading the customer base into new territory. There are many implications for world class finance including the business processes, technology, data management, integrations, and of course, implications around risk and control.
We all know from bitter experience that the risk and control implications are last to be addressed in the rush to deliver perceived business value with new technology. What is the new process and risk landscape? How can S/4HANA help drive digital transformation and lower the cost of finance? What will be the new normal around S/4HANA risk and control?
There is, as always, a lot of hype and confusion, starting with HANA as database versus the new S/4 application components up to the premise of “just’ an upgrade” versus “starting all over again”.
In this Webinar we try to untangle this Gordian knot by clarifying confusion, getting to the facts and suggesting the key questions that organizations should be asking in and for their own business on topics like strategy, processes, systems and infrastructure. We also addressed the impact on the risk and control roadmap and implementation considerations around risk and controls topics in the new S/4HANA-world.
