The Accenture team, assessed the client’s business model to understand the true drivers of its businesses, also analyzing the client’s strategic plans and investor communications and interviewing the leadership. It then worked closely with the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), the business unit Group CFOs, as well as the leadership of Financial Planning and Analysis, Commercial Finance and Operations Finance across the businesses to help the company conduct a finance benchmarking assessment and formulate a future state solution. The development of a BA&R strategy was proposed.
The Accenture team leveraged Accenture’s strategic global alliances with Oracle and SAP, as well as its Accenture Delivery Methodology for SAP Business Intelligence and Oracle to help shape its approach. Leading Accenture subject matter advisors helped to validate the solution and deployment strategies, with Accenture’s centers of excellence in India and Milan assisting with solution design and deployment.
The BA&R solution utilizing Hyperion and SAP technologies has been designed and is now in a build, test and deploy phase.
