Posted by Bramasol Financial Transformation Team on Tue, Jul 25, 2017 @ 10:02 AM

Many forward-looking companies, led by innovative CFOs and IT departments are already proactively undertaking projects aimed at fundamental Financial Transformation.

The key technology trends that are enabling transformation include:

  • New-generation architectures, such as SAP S/4HANA, that combine core ERP & Finance systems with plug-in modular best-of-breed capabilities for revenue recognition, leasing, ecommerce, HR, travel, supply chain management, and more.
  • A “single version of the truth” approach that avoids discussions of who’s data is right, thereby enabling much faster and better tactical decision-making.
  • Cloud-based implementation options that can greatly reduce time-to-operation and which integrate seamlessly with in-house implementations to enable cost optimization along with flexibility and scalability to support growth.
  • Advanced real-time analytics and user interface (UX) technologies that can access information throughout the unified systems and provide easily tailored comprehensive reporting for ongoing management or ad hoc decisions.
