Controlling 2012 Conference Recap – Part 1

The inaugural SAP Controlling conference took place September 23 – 25, 2012 in San Diego, CA. The conference brought together Controlling professionals from across the United States and Europe for 2 ½ days of sessions and networking.

What Controlling 2012 Participants had to say about the conference: "The conference was very informative. It provided a lot of detail on HANA and some of the new solutions, as well as some detail about CO-PA specifically to reconciliations between that and the General Ledger. The speakers were excellent and I really enjoyed the sessions from Paul and Janet. And also the networking! It's been really great." "Loved the networking opportunities. Loved hearing about the up and coming tools and technology that are becoming available, and some stuff that we already have and just haven’t turned on yet."

"Exceeded my expectations. I've learned a lot. Hopefully I shared information with others. Made a lot of contacts. Really built up my network. I hope to be a speaker next year."
