reflections 2015

The year is once again coming to an end! With Thanksgiving just ending and Christmas around the corner, it seems like time goes even quicker as everyone gets excited for the holiday season.

In last year’s reflection series, the overarching theme was customer success. The series showcased SAP’s achievements through the success we’ve had with customers. This year, I will emphasize the success of SAP by highlighting great events, including the journey to the SAP Cloud for Analytics launch and how important it is to be in the cloud to stay relevant as a part of the digital transformation today.

The reflections series will be in the form of 12 blogs that summarizes key events during the year and to share and celebrate our accomplishments leading up to the SAP Cloud for Analytics launch. Follow details of this series of 12 blog posts here on CFO Knowledge as well as Twitter using #EPMReflections.

Another big announcement is that the CFO Knowledge blog will be fully transitioning onto The Digitalist for 2016. Stay tuned to find out more details! You can visit the website to find CFO Knowledge where you can also subscribe for email updates on the right.


Let’s begin our #EPMReflections with the VELUX customer story from January. VELUX transitioned from a yearly budget process to a monthly rolling forecasting system with SAP Business Planning and Consolidation on SAP HANA. This accelerates their planning and helps speed up the decision making process. SAP predictive analytics used in conjunction with SAP Lumira is helping VELUX focus on trends and improving customer service. Watch the full story here.
