SAP Finance

The Challenge

Businesses must change and adapt in order to thrive. Mergers, acquisitions or divestments, as well changes to the external environment such new business models, disrupting technologies and new regulation, can all result in important changes to Finance structures, processes and reports. Typically, these changes take time to implement, creating bottlenecks and the need for time consuming manual interventions. The challenge is business agility and ability to quickly adapt to a changing business environment.
