The Hard Lessons of the '16 Close Cycle Rankings

Join Column5 to review key findings and the hard lessons to be drawn from Column5 and EPM International’s latest research into the external financial reporting timetables of the 1,000 largest companies in the world. Column5’s David JH Jones, Managing Director EMEA, will explore what these rankings tell us, the lessons we can draw, why these rankings matter and why the speed of close is a key metric for CFO’s and Corporate Controllers.

SAP BusinessObjects Cloud

SAP BusinessObjects Cloud (formerly SAP Cloud for Analytics) is a new generation of SaaS that redefines analytics by providing all analytics capabilities (BI, Planning, Predictive Analytics, etc.) for all users in one product. It is built natively on SAP HANA Cloud Platform to simplify access to a public cloud experience that customers trust.  Join Column5 and SAP for a discussion on the functional and technical features of this solution, and how it can be implemented either standalone or integrated with an existing BPC environment to increase the ROI of your organization’s EPM initiatives.

Modernize Financial Reporting

Cooperators-logo-blue-2X.pngThe vast majority of Canadian organizations still rely on spreadsheets as their primary tool for business analytics, which may leave them at a competitive disadvantage. This is one of the major findings of a new study by CFERF, the research foundation of FEI Canada, and sponsored by SAP Canada Inc.

According to the study, 79% of executives feel their current financial reporting and analytics tools only somewhat meet their business’s needs and 65% of businesses do not use or have no access to real-time reporting tools.

Using separate Excel files for budgeting, forecasting, financial reporting and analysis can result in disparate data sets and inconsistent reporting. Modern businesses need to run Simple and Run Live.

Join SAP and Column5 to discuss how world-class companies are facing new and industry changing competitors with tools that help businesses want to adapt, seamlessly respond and predict in the moment.

We will be joined by Co-operators, a Canadian insurance company, as they share their experience as a finance organization in a new paradigm, where cycle times must dramatically change or vanish, insight and action must happen live, continuous compliance is reality, planning is ongoing, predictions and simulations become the norm.
