Last week Touchstone FMS and BI held the second of their Masterclass events ‘Selecting and Implementing a new FMS and BI Solution’ in London’s Moorgate. Aimed at Finance and IT teams tasked with system transformation, the event was designed to educate attendees on the process of system change or transformation and the factors to consider when choosing a new FMS or BI solution.
The morning kicked off with a discussion on the drivers for change and the process of change with David Singh, industry expert and TouchstoneFMS Business Unit Head. It looked at why businesses opt to change solutions rather than invest in their existing solution, and conversely, when it may be more appropriate to invest in your current solution rather than make huge business changes.
Following on from this, Andes Loukianos, Head of TouchstoneBI was “all about the data”. With GDPR looming, data management is at the forefront of everyone’s minds and businesses that are embracing Digital Transformation, successfully capturing, processing and acting on their data insights are striding ahead of their competitors.
Coming back from the break, delegates were treated to a view into “the art of the possible” and what a modern FMS and BI solution is capable of. The sessions gave a flavour of Infor SunSystems 6.3 and the Infor d/EPM platform, and many delegates left the morning asking to see more.
The final session of the morning focused on project planning, with insight into the steps to take to ensure a successful implementation project from Touchstone Programme Director John Chapman.
The morning ended with a networking lunch, providing delegates the opportunity to have more in depth conversations with other delegates and Touchstone consultants, along with the chance to explore solutions offered by the Touchstone Group a little further.
