Driving Change with SAP Analytics Cloud: A Conversation with Contact Energy

Over the past few years, companies have increasingly recognised the potential of digital transformation to enhance their business processes, reach new audiences, and leverage their data to gain actionable new insights. This trend was only enhanced by the pandemic, as we begin to emerge into an uncertain marketplace dominated by e-commerce. With an integrated digital solution, companies can not only replace outdated manual processes, but also utilise cutting-edge predictive analysis and business intelligence tools to make more informed and insight-driven business decisions.

One company who recently took the leap is Contact Energy, one of New Zealand’s largest electricity, natural gas, broadband, and renewable energy providers. With SAP and Bluetree by their side every step of the way, Contact Energy completely transformed their financial reporting and workforce planning, resulting in a variety of ongoing benefits for both their business and their customer base.

Now, we invite you to come along to an interactive virtual session to discuss Contact Energy’s unique journey with SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC). SAP Analytics Cloud is a next-generation SaaS planning and forecasting solution which simplifies financial planning and analysis, provides real-time data visualisation and collaboration opportunities, and overcomes the challenge of consolidating multiple data silos and point solutions in a single cloud-based application.

The webinar will be hosted by Alan Contreras from Bluetree and Mike Vorias from SAP. Alan is the Performance Management and Analytics Director for Bluetree Solutions, with over twenty years of technology innovation and advisory experience across the financial planning and analytics sectors in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and Asia. Mike is the Director of the Office of the CFO at SAP APJ, a technology evangelist with extensive knowledge in the practical application of end-to-end financial process solutions across the Asia-Pacific region.

Joining them will be the Head of Financial Planning and Analysis at Contact Energy, Tejan Vallabh. As the leader of the finance team which spearheaded the company’s digital transformation, Tejan is sure to offer valuable insight into the lessons learned (both good and bad) from Contact Energy’s digital evolution. With topics including key drivers of change, change management processes, and the benefits Contact Energy are now seeing from the implementation of SAC, this discussion will be beneficial to any business considering the advantages and drawbacks of undertaking their own digital transformation.

Not only will attendees receive a first-hand account of the successful multi-phase implementation plan used to reshape Contact Energy’s financial planning and analytics capabilities, but you will also get to participate in a live Q&A session with Alan, Mike, and Tejan for a more detailed understanding of the entire experience.

This webinar provides an invaluable opportunity to take part in an important discussion about the future of predictive analysis and business intelligence, as well as learning how to overcome resistance to change in your own organisation and drive digital transformation for a better future.

The Driving Change with SAP Analytics Cloud: A Conversation with Contact Energy webinar will be held on Zoom on Tuesday, February 22 at 1pm (AEDT). Don’t miss out on your spot! To join us as an audience member, follow the link and register online today.
