Behind the Curtain at FIN-GRC 2016 with SAPinsider Studio

Education on how to become an efficient, real-time digital enterprise was a focal point and recurring theme among many of the more than 200 sessions at the SAPinsider FIN-GRC 2016 event, held in March at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Sessions devoted to SAP S/4HANA, predictive finance, enterprise performance management, and new ways to protect the SAP landscape and safeguard data in the digital age were prominently featured, and many had standing room only crowds of curious attendees anxious to bring this knowledge back to their own organizations. SAPinsider Studio captured a great deal of this content with short videos with select speakers and SAP thought leaders.

Here is a collection of transcript snippets and links to a few of the SAPinsider Studio videos from the event. A link to where you can find the other recorded videos from FIN-GRC 2016 is below.

We see a lot of customers that are maybe taking a wait-and-see stance, and what we like to do is show them what is possible – you don’t have to wait, the technology that we have is already there and it’s usable right now.” Ivo Bauermann, SAP Global Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Performance Management

“Finance can (with SAP S/4HANA Finance) spend more time actually modeling  the things that they always wanted to do but probably never had the time … A lot of reconciliation that used to be involved is no longer the case.” Birgit Starmanns, SAP, Senior Director, Product Marketing, SAP S/4HANA

“Because we now can consume the data directly from the Universal Journal, it takes no time at all. I have an instant response time much like our communication is, right? It’s instant.” Carsten Hilker, SAP, Finance Solution Management, on Universal Journal

“When we talk about modern invoice to pay processes and also about the digital economy, then I would say the integration into the Ariba Network is not an option, it’s really a must-have for every company to optimize the invoice to pay process and to really get the reconciliation automated as much as possible.”   – Friederike Hertenstein, Director, Accounts Payable, SAP Solution Management Finance
