    finance professionals to access information

    in new ways, enabled by the speed and

    power of SAP HANA. This will help to drive

    ongoing finance transformation as we

    proven to be the right solution to drive our

    key financial processes and reporting in

    real time. Our finance users were really

    impressed by the ability to perform reporting

    and analytics on item levels. Reconciliations

    of costs and financial accounting can now

    Our students live in a technological era,

    and we must provide a consistent

    environment so that their learning life and

    their social life can seamlessly blend. Our

    teaching staff and researchers must also

    have administrative overhead lifted from

    them so they can concentrate on their core

    activities. As an example, with SAP Simple

    Finance, our finance organization will be

    able to focus on the most essential tasks

    and get the job done in real time.

    As a leader in high security technology,

    innovation is critical for us, which includes

    implementing our internal processes, such as

    finance, on the latest technology platform. SAP,

    with its SAP HANA technology, is definitely

    ahead of the competition with its database

    technology and speed. We have run SAP

    ERP since 2002, and will now change our

    platform to SAP HANA, to enable us to take

    advantage of SAPs continuing innovations

    such as SAP Simple Finance, to meet our

    goal of being a technology leader both in our

    own business, as well as in our internal

    support processes.
