A Modern Finance Case Study - Cloud or On-Premise?

Date: Tuesday, January 31, 2017
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
As more and more Finance applications become available via the cloud, organizations must consider which deployment approach will best meet their particular business needs to help ensure they are evolving and modernizing the Office of Finance’s budgeting, reporting & forecasting.

Join industry leader, Craig Schiff, President & CEO, at BPM Partners, as he discusses the cost, service, functionality, and technology factors to be considered when looking at on-premises and cloud-based performance management applications. Also, hear from Joey Perrone, Director, FP&A at Aeglea BioTherapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AGLE), a leading biotechnology company, who will share his company’s decision process in choosing a modern finance solution. Joey will detail how he and his team evaluated the On-Premise vs. Cloud deployment options, along with the lessons they learned along the way that helped to mitigate risks.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Understand more about the cost, service, functionality, technology considerations and business benefits when looking at on-premises systems and cloud-based offerings.
Comprehend the various evaluation criteria and how they relate to each deployment option.
Appreciate how the resulting deployments provide a reduced reliance on spreadsheets, shortened period-end reporting cycles, and accelerated reporting, enabling Finance to spend more time on value-added analysis
