Love counts

Revenue, profit, turnover rates, time-to-market—numbers provide security in uncertain times and are indispensable in our lives and companies.

Bosses (usually) love them, employees (usually) hate them, and financial officers, as guardians of the numbers, are caught in a volatile, fast-paced world between the desire for reliable information, “safe” forecasts, and the suspicion that half-truths and political games could undermine the credibility of “their” numbers.

How do you manage to identify decision-relevant information in this environment, communicate it clearly, and recognize the unwanted impacts reporting and planning can have? You will find out in “Love counts” the first relationship counseling for numbers and people.

BayWa: With SAP Central Finance to SAP S/4HANA

The agricultural group BayWa switched to SAP S/4HANA and implemented SAP Central Finance as a central part of the changeover. The go-live of the switch to SAP S/4HANA was at the beginning of 2024. With the introduction of SAP S/4HANA, the Group replaced a very heterogeneous SAP R/3 system that was around 20 years old. SAP Central Finance connects the old SAP R/3 system with the future SAP S/4HANA system and thus enables a gradual move with cutting patterns across the legal structures, significantly reducing complexity and risk in particular. At the Accounting Summit, Tobias Fausch and Christian Neuschil will report on the preliminary study carried out in advance and provide a practical insight into the subsequent implementation and the particular challenges of the project.

    10:30 Introduction of AI in accounting - what is worthwhile and what is not?

    AI in accounting has extremely high potential. However, the topic of AI in accounting is
    associated with many dimensions, which makes a stringent decision to introduce it very difficult.
    For example, the AI's differentiation in the degree of independence of its actions. Or the
    distinction between Analytical AI and GenKI/ChatKI. Or the difficulty of auditing the decision-
    making of an autonomous AI in accounting. Accordingly, the decision-making process for the
    introduction of AI in accounting is associated with a high level of initial uncertainty.
    The lecture will briefly examine these elements and also provide an initial report on the decision
    to introduce AI in a small company.
