By Clinton Jones on September 21, 2015
Calendars are starting to fill up this time of the year with SAP related events, and one event finance professionals who work with SAP must pencil in their calendar is the Controlling Conference in San Diego.
Controlling 2015 covers detailed topics in the management accounting module of SAP, and the conference is targeted at end-users working with master records, transactions, configuration, and reporting. Although it might be heavily targeted at managers, the event is also relevant for those responsible for daily finance operations.
This year, just as in past years there will be several sessions led by professionals recognized for their expertise within the SAP Controlling domain.
- There are five conference tracks conveniently grouped together by type of session:
- SAP Overhead Accounting
- SAP Product Costing
- SAP Reporting/SAP HANA
- SAP Planning
- Pre-Conference Sessions
Pre-conference sessions on Monday, September 21, 2015 will provide a unique opportunity to take a deeper dive into your topic of choice.
