Bobby Abraham

Global VP of Finance Transformation AstraZeneca

As AstraZeneca launches its new Growth through Innovation strategy leading up to AZ 2025, the programme will continue its roll out on a new phase of transformation responding to the next chapter. This will ensure Finance embeds changes, embraces new technologies, supports sustained growth, provides the analytics and insight to drive patient centric innovative science and advances our culture, so AstraZeneca becomes an even greater place to work. Leading a team of over 300 IT / Finance & Project Management colleagues delivering three major enterprise wide products based on the robust foundation of our Finance Data Hub. We are scheduled to roll out our Enterprise Planning Hub, Management Reporting Hub & our External reporting Hub through 2019. We built on the significant foundational work delivered in harmonising structures, reducing legacy systems and cleansing data. The Finance Data Hub was launched bringing together data from multiple source systems (including SAP and Workday) to create a unified data repository that underpins and powers financial planning and reporting globally. It is the single source of trusted data and will support future functionality needs as the platform evolves. The Planning Hub launched in November 2018 for Science, Enabling and Commercial units provides fast access to quality financial data with key assumptions, drivers and trends, supporting forecasting to deliver clear efficiencies and more meaningful insights. Significant progress was also made in readiness for the Management Reporting Hub and External Reporting Hub launches in 2019 which will further strengthen our controls and compliance and delivery across embedded finance teams and our Finance GBS organisation
