We'll help you find the right strategy. Many companies are currently working intensively on the switch to SAP S / 4HANA. There is hardly a topic that is currently moving the IT areas. A changeover of the ERP system is also of great importance for treasury departments.

Treasury departments have to deal with this situation, regardless of whether you have previously used SAP in treasury. Because: Changes arise for everyone - even if you use your own treasury management system (TMS): At least the interfaces and data sources change. Many companies are using the switch to S / 4HANA to better integrate the system landscape. In this respect, the question of system support in treasury arises again. This can be the chance to make treasury processes more efficient with a new or optimized system solution. In this seminar you will find out what opportunities this situation offers you and what you should pay attention to.

Main topics:

SAP S / 4HANA at a glance - what has changed compared to the old version?
• General architectural differences.
• The new look - web interface as an alternative to the SAP GUI.
• What new functions does SAP S / 4HANA offer in treasury?
• New models briefly explained: SAP Cloud Platform (connection to the outside world), SAP Analytics Cloud (new approach to reporting and planning) and SAP Leonardo (machine learning).

What should your future system landscape look like?
• An overview of possible scenarios.
• What if you are already using SAP Treasury modules and the S / 4HANA changeover takes place? What changes? Which functions have to be adapted? Which functions are new? Which licenses have to be acquired again?
• Integrated system vs. side-by-side approach - what are the advantages and disadvantages?
• How can a SAP landscape be linked to your existing non-SAP TMS?
• If you are currently using a non-SAP TMS, does a changeover or partial changeover to SAP Treasury modules make sense?

What are the basic IT approaches for the S / 4HANA implementation?
• Greenfield approach vs. brownfield approach.
• On-premises vs. cloud strategy.
• Why is it also important for treasurers to know the IT strategy?
• What do the approaches mean for treasury?
• S / 4HANA best practices.

What strategies are there in the transition to S / 4HANA?
• How is the daily account reconciliation and disposition done?
• Possible interim solutions.
• Can and should Treasury act as a pilot for S / 4HANA?
• When is it worth waiting?

What does the new reporting solution SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) look like?
• Comprehensive treasury reporting in real time.
• SAC options for liquidity planning.

A brief look at the system: SAP S / 4HANA:
• Navigation, look and feel.
• Insight into the most important apps.

Group of participants:
Employees and managers from the Treasury department who are confronted with an ERP conversion to S / 4HANA and are interested in the possible uses of the SAP Treasury modules.

Based on a presentation of the new functions in SAP S / 4HANA, possible future system landscapes are outlined and strategic questions about implementation are discussed. The seminar concludes with a live demonstration of the most important new functions.
