Face it. Digital Transformation is not easy. With proper strategy and leadership, ERP projects can, and do, succeed. ERP is just one of many Digital Transformation initiatives that businesses undertake. Unfortunately, these 3 letters bring concern and risk due to the frequent failures in these projects – as well as the trail of dysfunction left behind from poorly executed projects. Our session leader, Bob Green, leads a team of objective, product-agnostic Digital Transformation professionals at SingerLewak's Business Informatics practice. They work in this space to help ensure proper project strategy and execution from all players involved – as well as to remediate implementations that have gone awry. In this session, Bob will share interactively actual recommendations and practices that you, as the financial leader, can deploy and govern in your organization to make Digital Transformation (ERP, and otherwise) a successful experience.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define what Digital Transformation is, and where ERP (and FPA, CRM, and others) fit in this paradigm
  • Explore scenarios that give rise to require businesses to upgrade their ERP and other software
  • Learn the key success factors to ERP and other Digital Transformation projects – and how you can tackle them.
  • Time permitting, we'll investigate several of these in “how to” discussions.
  • Take away: a self-assessment to determine your business' readiness for tackling an ERP or other Digital Transformation project.

How Power BI Made Disparate Systems "Play Nice" with Each Other

Nov 20, 2019 9:25am ‐ Nov 20, 2019 10:40am

Identification: CMF1929

Operation Minutes: 75

Running an internet startup and pioneering new methodologies for an entrenched industry is hard work. PowerPivotPro's operational complexities mirror those of much-larger firms: a historical hodge-podge of on-premises, cloud, and home-grown systems, each managing a crucial component of the overall business.

In such a siloed environment, even fundamental questions like “what will cash flow look like in three months,” “when should we hire more staff,” and “are we on pace to hit the budget” can be a nightmare. Sound familiar?

But now imagine having crystal-clear vision across ALL of that, from the “10,000 foot view” all the way down to individual transactions (when needed). Furthermore, imagine a laser-precise forecast which automatically refines itself every single day. And last but not least, imagine having all of this without a seven-figure spend, and without waiting a year or more?

In this session, see how our leadership team “practiced what we preach” on our own business to make this a reality – as a side project. We'll even demonstrate our fully-functional suite of dashboards (with obfuscated financials), so bring your cell phone cameras! Along the way we hope to inspire you to mirror our results for your own business.

Learning Objectives:
  • Overview of the Microsoft Power BI suite
  • New tools and skills that can dramatically improve Excel based forecasting and budgeting
  • Clear and tangible ROI you can take back to your business immediately
  • Knowledge and assistance from a thought leader in the Power BI world
