11:00 am - 11:45 am BST Exploring Lufthansa’s Alternative Approach to S4 Hana Transition: Lessons Learnt and Benefits Realised

Joachim Hannappel - VP Project Forward Common Finance, Lufthansa AG

When migrating to S4 Hana 36 months ago, Lufthansa decided on a step-by-step approach focused on partial rather than full-scale end-to-end integration and based on Central Finance. This saved them costs, time and was a less complex endeavor. In this session, project lead Joachim Hannappel talks through his decision and journey on this common finance approach, focusing on:

• The project “FORward – Common Finance” approach 

• Achieving common reporting by mapping the source data

• Using S4 Hana to support the future of finance at Lufthansa

2:00 pm - 2:45 pm BST Unlocking Data-Driven Intelligence & Innovation with S/4 Hana

In SSON’s 2020 State of the Industry Survey, our members reported that providing decision support through real-time analytics is a major priority. With SAP S/4 Hana the hope is that this will become a reality via its built-in AI and machine learning capabilities. This session looks at how this can be achieved through:

• Unifying your data management to capture real-time value from different types of data

• Taking advantage of unstructured, structured, external and internal data

• Using your tool-box to deliver out of the box innovation

SAP S/4 Hana can transform all critical enterprise functions as it enables businesses to transact, analyze and predict in real-time, within an increasingly unpredictable world. But like any large-scale technology implementation, it can be tricky. This session discusses how you can ensure your organization is ready for implementation to maximize results and minimize the transition time.

• Assessing your organizations current readiness and gaps 

• Operating in a hybrid cloud landscape

• Resource optimization, risk mitigation and alignment of the team

• Accessing the data you need and working with legacy systems
