  • With the Board, we have been working on SAP's strategy and actually produced a fairly detailed document that will be made available to all of you shortly. If I were to summarize this document, this is how I would do it. As Marty just told, being a great company is when there's a match between clients' expectations and your reality. If we want to be a great C°, we have to deliver on expectations . I am sure there's a word we all cherish in this summary it is independence. But independence has a price, it is financial performance that drives market cap. A company's value depends on: Earnings: increase profitability (25 %, benchm. Oracle) grow SW-licence faster (1,5 times) Strategy: "one voice" - doc. on strategy Reputation: keep building the SAP brand with pride Independence is also about running faster than the others (c.f. the bill GATES anecdote). Being a fast follower isn't sufficient anymore. The market expects SAP to lead the way in turning the promise of new technologies into results bearing business reality. We want to be known as the TRUSTED INNOVATOR. Last but not least, our focus remains Business Solutions. But as we've seen, business has changed a lot and this also means change the way we develop our solutions. We need to combines the advantages of the integrated suite – efficiency and low TCO – with the flexibility promise of BoB solutions. SAP is then moving to "Best of Suite".
  • Building a Business Case for Enterprise Analytics What is the result? For the first time since the inception of business intelligence technology, organizations are now able to realize the full impact of performance management tools. The value and opportunity for enhanced business performance is obvious. Companies through the use of mySAP ERP can increase visibility for every employee and role, utilize predictive analysis to guide business decisions, leverage real-time actual data of the business to set strategy, spend more time breaking down performance measures versus constructing model and achieve first-mover advantages in their market by targeting the right customers, investing more intelligently and optimizing the price their services or products.
  • We are well prepared from the product side – but what about our business? What applies to products also is true for business, i.e. processes and people. One fits all doesn’t work any longer. If we want to be successful in volume business we cannot apply our way of doing business proven for the complex systems world From 2006 on we will separate both worlds of business step by step and implement new lean processes for volume business. However, we will continue to be one SAP with one strategy, one set of values and one goal: customer value. What does this mean for the CSO? Two different sales models and different set of skills: Relationship model: We improve continuously where we are already very good in: value engineering worldwide, MaxAttention for complex landscapes, a broad ISV-Ecosystem for co-innovation. Hybrid sales model: Here we cannot continue to do what we did in the past. We will add disruptive innovations to our product portfolio and answer the burning issues of short implementation time, instant usage and painless upgrades. We must add disruptive elements to the way we are doing business and reduce sales and support costs dramatically. Will be an area of major investments throughout the next 3 years.
  • Let‘s have a more detailed look at the functional scope of mySAP ERP. Evolving the ERP standards into the next generation, mySAP ERP not only includes the traditional functionalities in financials, human resources and operations, but expands the scope in all areas. To mention some of the highlights, with the Analytics area, mySAP ERP contains state-of-the art data warehousing capabilities, allowing quick and interactive information retrieval. mySAP ERP also includes a variety of corporate services like travel or real estate management. But also in the other area, value-add capabilities have been added, e.g. Self-Service Procurement in the purchasing area, or Strategic Enterprise Management. We will have a more detailed look at the different functionalities on the following slides.
  • This is what we are frequently talking about with our customers if it comes to Finance Topics: The traditional components like Financial and Management Accounting (Controlling) are still important, but the main focus here is on a tighter integration and harmonization of these both worlds. Many Customers tell us that they have historically grown systems and approaches for Financial Accounting and Controlling and have to spend huge efforts to reconcile both. There are many good reasons for such harmonization (e.g. Fast Close, Corporate Governance, Requirements for Segment Reporting according to IFRS) and consequently there is a clear trend towards that direction. Corporate Governance is a topic that became more and more important in the last years. An important driver is the Sarbanes-Oxley-Act, which is a set of sohisticated rules to which companies have to apply if they are listed at a US Stock Exchange. However also outside of the US there is a clear dendency that investors and auditors expect from an enterprise to provide evidence of the correctness of reported data and of the effectiveness of controls and transparency of management decisions. Coporate Governance leads to significant efforts in the enterprises mostly effecting the Finance Department. Efficiency in Finance is a important, especially in the context of what has been said in the prior paragraph, because new regulations cause big efforts and can be only managed with efficient processes. Cost of Finance is on the scope of many customers. Performance Management is a key topic for many enterprises, because the global competition and dynamic market environment require faster decisions then ever before. Enterprises want to leverage the information which is in most cases available but located in many fragmented information silos which do not deliver the required combined information in time and quality as a basis for decision making to a certain person.
  • The impressions from our customer meeting discussed on the prior slide are also confirmed by an CFO survey from Deloitte Consulting. Number one priority is to control costs in the business (Refers to Management Accounting) Another high Priority topic is decision support (refers to Performance Management) Risk Management and Internal Controls refers to Corporate Governance The topic of “reducing finance function costs” is only a small one, but it is remarkable that it appears at all – we will have a look on the next slide why.
  • Efficiency: If a customer chooses SAP it is a choice for best-practice processes. SAP is used by more than xxx customers and consequently SAP is the standard setter. A direct payback of that decision is, that auditors know the SAP system and will be faster than auditing a best-of-breed solution or even a self-developed solution. With SAP’s Industry Solutions also very specific processes are covered and fully integrated with the core components.
  • Efficiency: Within SAP we are not only talking about Integration of Financials and Controlling but also with Logistical Processes. The processes shown on the slide should not be understood as SAP specific models, but rather common flows of activities. Thus the arrows can also be understood as a flow of information, how it would ideally look like. However for customers with fragmented systems there is no way to realize such timely flow of information. With SAP you have a real time integration of all these aspects. Background information – not necessarily to be discussed in all details: Purchase Requests create a “Purchase Request Commitment” in CO. This is important because it enables Controlling to be already informed about the “plan” to purchase and can check that against current budget situation. With the help of the Cash Forecast it can even be checked against the expected budget situation at the expected payment date. This enables early alerts and control mechanisms. If the purchase request is confirmed a purchase order is created. The CO Commitment is now changed to a Purchase Order Commitment and Cash Forecast changes to a more advanced status. Goods Receipt triggers a provisional actual posting in CO and a posting into the General Ledger. Incoming Invoices can be matched against the purchase order and blocked in case of differences If released the invoice triggers an actual posting to CO and an updated Cash forecast Payment at due date is triggered in Accounts Payables with update of Cash Position in Treasury Electronic Banking provides a variety of options how to hand over the payment advice to the home bank and reconcile the home bank account with the related amounts in the SAP system.
  • [Note: To safe time this slide can be left out. Instead you can only explain the next one about Purchase-to-Pay] Efficiency: Within SAP we are not only talking about Integration of Financials and Controlling but also with Logistical Processes. The processes shown on the slide should not be understood as SAP specific models, but rather common flows of activities. Thus the arrows can also be understood as a flow of information, how it would ideally look like. However for customers with fragmented systems there is no way to realize such timely flow of information. With SAP you have a real time integration of all these aspects. Background information – not necessarily to be discussed in all details: Incoming Orders cause a credit check. If the incoming order is confirmed it triggers an Incoming Order forecast in Controlling and a Cash/Liquidity Forecast in Treasury. The Incoming Order forecast in CO can be selectively shown in CO reporting in addition to the billing data to gain also a picture of expected revenues. Goods issue is reflected as cost in CO. Inventory and Cost are posted in General Ledger. Optionally the goods issue posting can be made depending on an additional credit check The invoice creates an open item of the customer record and an update of the receivables item in the General Ledger. The contra item for the revenue is found automatically via customizing. The invoice updates CO-PA and Treasury. The following activities around dunning and collection and payment are part of Accounts Receivables. Electronic Banking provides a variety of options how to automatically load the incoming payment from the bank statement into the SAP system.
  • As a result of working with you, we have organized our thinking around four key points of emphasis in mySAP ERP Analytics – for insight and real-time decision support -> Development of long term enterprise strategies and alignment with short term business plans, Embedded analytics Financial Accounting – to deal with the mounting complexity in financial reporting -> one true reconciled version for parallel accounting Management Accounting -> Cost and Profitability Management for better business decisions The Financial Supply Chain – for better operational improvement of finance -> optimization of the cash-to-cash cycle, better visibility and control over all cash-related processes And Corporate Governance and Compliance – to reduce risk and ensure sustainable shareholder trust -> Transparent, secure and auditable accounting, Compliant to all local and international rules and regulations
  • The GL in mySAP ERP unifies data and functionality which were previously split over multiple ledgers and applications—such as the Classic General Ledger, Cost of Goods Sold Ledger, Profit Center Ledger, Consolidation Preparation Ledger, and other Special Ledgers. The General Ledger: Supports a unified financial and management accounting by integrating company code, profit center, functional area, transaction type, etc. into one common data structure and processing. Provides extensibility and flexibility to add industry or customer specific dimensions to standard accounting. Powerfully splits functionality for balanced books by any dimension which is important for segment and management reporting, and in many industries. Supports parallel accounting by using parallel ledgers or parallel accounts. Supports a fast close since many period-end activities are no longer required. Provides perfect transparency and reduces the risk of non-compliance – thus supporting Corporate Governance . Lowers TCO for implementing and running the General Ledger (when compared with SAP R/3). Abbreviations New GL = New General Ledger, TCO = Total Cost of Ownership IFRS = International Financial Reporting Standards, US GAAP = US Generally Accepted Accounting Standards Accnt = Account, SEG = Segment
  • Financial accounting with mySAP ERP Financials allows your organization to standardize all accounting dimensions on a single platform. No matter what your business, industry, or company size, SAP offers a comprehensive solution for all your accounting needs, helping you to reduce total cost of ownership and error rates while improving reporting functionality and transparency into individual dimensions of financial accounting. SAP full supports Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Bank Accounting, and Cash Journal Accounting.
  • How does SAP impact my control structure Inherent Controls - the document principle Reporting Controls - standard or ad-hoc reports (i.e., review change of master data) Configurable Controls - automated controls set up at time of configuration (e.g., tolerances, required fields, document flow, etc.) Access Controls - user access and segregation of duties controls (From PwC Webinar) There is a shift from the traditional view of internal controls being the sole responsibility of Finance. To be effective, internal controls must be considered throughout the enterprise, and the Act recommends the establishment of a disclosure committee. CEO / CFO Quarterly and annual certification Annual assertion attested to by external auditor Department Heads Upstream processes have downstream financial impact Upstream processes impact disclosures CIO / Information Technology – Systems supporting processes must ensure data integrity
  • Built on SAP‘s commitment to internal controls, the audit information system (AIS) in mySAP ERP Financials offers a tool for improving the internal and external audit process. Working with SAP user groups and external auditors, SAP has designed AIS to facilitate system audit reviews, business audits of financial transactions, and tax audits using a structured, preconfigured collection of standard SAP programs and checklists. AIS easily supports offsetting account analysis, individual inquiries, and document tracing activities that can be structured in role-based sets and asssigned to auditors to further streamline the audit process. And because AIS functionality supports account-based audits, you get an easy-to-execute audit process, improved audit quality, enhanced collaboration with external auditors, and above all, a transparent audit trail.
  • Helping to reduce communication costs, the closing cockpit displays all closing functions on a single screen , allowing departments to work together to structure, schedule, and execute the closing process. The graphical interface uses color-coding to show the status of scheduled and completed jobs, critical paths, and detailed reports. With a transparent process, errors can be pinpointed more quickly and the repsonible employee notified immediately, further reducing surprises and unexpected downtime.
  • Managerial accounting flexibly supports virtually any cost accounting methodology—from simple overhead allocation to Activity Based Costing. With this approach, you can use the methodology best suited for your industry to reduce cost-of-goods-sold or operating costs, increase production or process efficiency, maximize customer profitability, or improve inventory visibility. Cost center accounting : Automatically assign simple and complex costs to cost centers and structures; Ensure transparency and clear audit trails; Complete detailed variance analysis Internal order accounting : Improve the accuracy of internal job costing; Monitor internal orders through their entire lifecycle; Complete variance analysis to understand cost overages Activity based costing (ABC): Increase transparency on the real costs of business processes, products, and customer service; Use template allocations to easily execute complex allocations; Support ABC methodology throughout the cost management process Product costing : Optimize product portfolio based on detailed cost information; Improve transparency of and control over product costs: Calculate standard and actual costs, Complete detailed variance analysis, Meet legal inventory valuation requirements Profit center accounting : Determine profit and losses for internal areas of responsibility: Use period accounting or cost of sale approach; Set accurate transfer prices to better value internal exchange of goods; Facilitate the consolidation and elimination of intercompany profits and losses; Analyze the profitability of even the smallest unit of responsibility Investment management: Support the investment decision process by improving visibility into overall investment program; Improve the speed and flow of investment information (investment request, internal order, capitalize asset under construction, seamless integration with fixed asset accounting and general ledger Profitability analysis: Identify profitability by any market segment with multi-dimensional profitability reporting: Accurately assign revenues, sales deductions, direct costs and overhead by market segment; Analyze the profitability of a market segment by product, customer, order, strategic business unit or any user-defined dimension; Layer on cost-of-goods-sold (COGS) from product cost accounting to construct a contribution margin model; Flexibly define key figures and characteristics of market segments
  • Financial supply chain management This is all about improving a process your business executes thousands of times a day. Each step incurs a cost: when added together, on an annual basis, translates into millions of dollars of lost opportunity for many businesses. Translates in your need to add more working capital (float) to the system. Chokes your ability to free resources for investment or growth. Enables collaboration within enterprises and within their business networks, by using defined business policies and shared services to handle all customer-related and supply-chain-related financial processes. Helps automate the financial supply chain, by using the Web and other electronic service models. This example illustrates how Financial Supply Chain Management is used to optimize the cash-to-cash cycle, by bringing together credit management, electronic bill presentment and payment, dispute management, and collections management, to name a few of the processes.
  • Supporting strategy and growth of the corporate enterprise is a major challenge for today‘s finance departments. In a globalized business environment and globale enterprise structures the role of the CFO is more and more the role of a „Business Integrator“. LOB representatives expect guidance how they can align their business with the corporate strategy and what KPI‘s will be relevant to finally measure their performance. The CFO needs transparency into the value drivers of the business, effective methods to manage corporate plan and strategy and to monitor execution of business strategies. The LOB Executives and mid managers need a clear understanding of the Corporate Strategy and what is expected from them how to contribute to the enterprise success. SAP provides for these purposes a complete suite of applications for Corporate Performance Management. Let‘s have a closer look into the components: With SAP Business Consolidation (SEM-BCS) we provide a complete solution for legal and for management consolidation purposes. Both aspects a tightly integrated, which means that in a common process data is consolidated along management hierarchies (typically the profit center hierarchy) as well as along hierarchies for external reporting (typically the investment hierarchy or regional groupings of subsidiaries). With that approach you will realize the famous „single version of the truth“ for internal and external reporting. An important part of CPM is Business Planning. We provide a solution which is tightly integrated with Business Consolidation, which can go in two directions: - use actual data from consolidation as starting point for the planning cycle or - use results from Business Planning as input for consolidation and simulate the corporate figures on the basis of the current plans SAP‘s planning solution is also integrated in a vertical direction: high level strategic plans can be broken down into operational plans with common tools and a common plattform. This facilitates the reconciliation of buttom up and top down planning results and shortens the overall time of the planning cycle. 3. For Performance Measurement SAP provides a lot of functionality for analytic and formatted reporting. But keep in mind: Performance Measurement is more than just reporting – it is all about having the right insight to make better decisions. Therefore SAP provides composition tools and a portal concept that enable you to put relevant information together in the right context and on the required aggregation level to finally support a certain person in decision making. 4. Withing Strategy Management the goal is to come to a global view on the enterprise situation and strategy. CPM is not just about managing financial performance – what about your customer‘s satisfaction, what about the quality of your products? Just some examples that show, that managing a company‘s strategy requires a broad view on the enterprise. SAP delivers a lot of KPI‘s the can be used within Strategy Management to setup Balanced Scorecards or to calcuate what-if-analysis using value driver trees.
  • For most businesses, compliance with regulatory mandates remains an overly complex and costly challenge. Even after dedicating millions of dollars to compliance initiatives, organizations can still have considerable uncertainty regarding the effectiveness of their efforts. And the costs of noncompliance can be insurmountable. Compliance with mySAP ERP : Compliance is effectively addressed by a broad set of solutions and technology. mySAP ERP helps you to effectively manage risk, compliance, and corporate governance. SAP offers a uniquely effective strategy for companies seeking to meet their immediate and long-term compliance, risk, and corporate governance needs. By combining business-process insight with an integrated technology platform, SAP can help you turn regulatory burden into competitive advantage, and realize the benefits of improved operational efficiencies and corporate transparency at a sustainable cost. Proven GRC Solutions from SAP SAP® solutions for GRC offer a holistic approach for addressing a broad range of cross-industry and industry-specific regulations. They include a comprehensive set of integrated applications that simplify – and reduce the cost of ensuring – compliance with access and authorization control mandates. These marketleading applications provide end-to-end automation for detecting, remediating, mitigating, and preventing access and authorization risk across the enterprise, resulting in lower costs, reduced risk, and better business performance. By deploying SAP applications for access and authorization control as part of an integrated GRC strategy that leverages the SAP framework for GRC, companies can proactively achieve two significant returns on their investment. First, they can address more regulatory- and business-related risks with a lower cost structure for compliance. And second, while the competition is mired in tactical compliance management, a holistic GRC approach enables organizations to create a differentiated business and achieve greater agility.
