2:30 – 3:00 p.m. Panel –Migrating from Hyperion Financial Reports to Management and Narrative Reporting
Reporting is the final destination of converting raw data into information to run your business. Management Reporting (MR) is going to be the future of reporting as Financial Reporting (FR) is going away. However, companies that are on Finance Reporting should upgrade to Management Reporting. This is not a quick and easy decision, especially if your organization has built in reports extensively in FR. Are you ready to migrate now from FR to MR but are wary of making the wrong first step? This session will guide you through the best practices, tips and techniques you need for a successful journey to EPM Reporting. Also, you will hear from experts about their experiences on migration strategy.
3:05 – 3:35 p.m. Happy Hour – A zoom link will be provided in the session chat.
