SAP and FEI are cosponsoring a half-day program on Building the Case for Disclosure Management - Automating the Last Mile of Finance. Featured speakers include: Jon Church, Managing Director, cundus Inc., George Neal, Sr. Director, Center of Excellence, SAP America, Muthu Ranganathan, Director, SAP America, and Mike Willis, Partner, PwC.Here's a brief program description:
The term “financial close” describes a corporation’s ability to complete its accounting cycles and produce financial statements for internal management and external legal reporting. The requirement to close books quickly and with quality is a key indicator for the success of a company’s finance function.
Recently, there has been an increasing focus on automating the “last mile of finance” with disclosure management solutions, to manage the production, filing, and publication of financial statements and reports, driven in part by the increasing global mandates for companies to submit electronic filings in the XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) format.
This half-day seminar will focus on trends, issues, and strategies for accelerating the financial close, with a concentration on automating the financial and regulatory disclosure processes.
The program will be offered in four separate cities in September. Sign up for the program in the city of your choice by using the links below.
