SAPPHIRE4A famous German soccer coach once said, “After the world championship is before the world championship,” and this sentiment holds true for our annual SAP conference as well – after SAPPHIRE NOW equals before SAPPHIRE NOW. So, even though we’ve just enjoyed one of our best events ever, we’re already looking forward to topping it all in 2016 by continuing to simplify and modernize finance. Our goal is to help our customers gain real-time insight for better business results.

Customers were the focus of this year’s event, and they lead the way by giving all the theatre presentations. By sharing their stories, they demonstrated better than we could how our Simple Finance solution portfolio enables real-time finance processes for instant insight and a single version of the truth. Thanks to all who participated!
