With SAP recently focusing heavily on developing its S/4HANA Cloud solutions, now is an opportune time for corporate executives to investigate the deployment options and weigh up the investment versus the benefit of each. Changing IT infrastructure and systems is costly, and executives need the right knowledge to make informed decisions to best meet their current and future demands at the optimal price point. What are the best options?
The corporate landscape is being redefined by a plethora of factors, from new business models and changing regulations to increased competition from digital natives and the acceleration of the consumer digital-first mindset.
On 20-21 October, SAP organized its annual ‘Treasury and Working Capital Management Live’ which, due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, was again a digital event. Zanders traditionally has a strong presence at this event and again this year we hosted two interesting presentations.
For many treasurers, dealing with transfer pricing regulation adds yet another compliance burden to their list of responsibilities. With the development of the transfer pricing solution for intercompany loans, Zanders aims to unburden treasurers from this task. The SAP integration makes this task even easier. The integration allows corporates to price their intercompany loans in line with regulation in a few clicks, without having to leave their SAP environment.
The need to formulate a treasury technology roadmap for your organization has never been more critical. This is particularly relevant for large complex organizations that are running SAP. The SAP S/4HANA move is complex and presents great opportunities and challenges. For the treasury within these large complex organizations it does not make sense to wait for the enterprise to formulate a roadmap as then the likelihood of the treasury requirements not being properly prioritized are high.
