Deloitte Launches SAP S/4HANA Finance Lab For Finance and IT Leaders

Deloitte Launches SAP S/4HANA Finance Lab For Finance and IT Leaders

NEW YORK, May 12, 2016 (PRNewswire) – Deloitte today announced the launch of a lab program designed to help finance and IT leaders transform the enterprise and explore opportunities to unlock new business value based on the SAP S/4HANA finance solution. Deloitte’s new lab for SAP S/4HANA Finance will provide executives with a one-day experience focused on enhancing the value of the CFO and CIO organizations by highlighting areas prone to lack of transparency and operational inefficiency, and demonstrating how SAP S/4HANA Finance can make a difference. Participants will learn ways their teams can align their efforts with the Finance 2020 vision for the CFO function while also learning how to create value with SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) and how to plan their next steps toward transformation.

“Finance and IT leaders today are under more pressure than ever to deliver results that support big-picture business goals and deliver real value to the bottom line. They understand that SAP S/4HANA Finance can serve as a powerful solution for delivering high-quality data and actionable real-time insights for decision making,” said Steven Ehrenhalt, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and global finance transformation leader. “But faced with today’s increasingly complex finance function and a multitude of possibilities when it comes to transformation steps, many leaders aren’t sure how to get started.”

By offering a hands-on program that guides leaders through relevant capabilities of the SAP solution, process considerations and detailed operational scenarios, the Deloitte lab for SAP S/4HANA Finance provides executives with a real-world “boot camp” experience that can help them start planning their transformation efforts. Launch of the lab coincides with Deloitte’s receiving a 2016 SAP Pinnacle Award as the SAP S/4HANA Adoption Partner of the Year. The award recognizes Deloitte’s strength in helping accelerate adoption of the platform, based on co-innovation efforts, market impact and innovative solutions.

Though the lab program will launch first in the United Kingdom, lab-focused programs and activities are expected to extend worldwide through related initiatives — such as mobile lab opportunities and the Deloitte Greenhouse program, which bring together Deloitte professionals and clients in cutting-edge physical spaces located around the world to help address complex problems.

“Understanding the full potential of SAP S/4HANA Finance requires more than a quick demonstration. The solution brings innovative new capabilities and answers to long-standing challenges and leaders really need to see it at work. It requires an in-depth, interactive discussion on the technical considerations as well as considerations around business processes,” said Thack Brown, general manager and global head of SAP’s Line of Business Finance. “The lab for SAP S/4HANA Finance offers them an opportunity for practical education and to start imagining what their businesses might look like in the future.”
