It seems lately I have been hearing a lot about “loosely coupled” business applications. It started about a year ago at Infor’s customer event (Inforum) and then continued at SAP’s SapphireNow. More recently, with SAP’s introduction of Financials OnDemand, I heard it again. But is this what its customers and prospects are looking for?
As we go through the positioning and messaging process for SAP Financials OnDemand (our latest addition to the SAP Cloud portfolio), I am reminded of the big innovation wave of the 90’s when Michael Hammer’s Business Process Engineering book took the industry by storm, and created a huge wave of demand around transformation projects as well as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, which made SAP the market leader we are today.

This interview provides a special look into Aasonn's implementation (the first SAP Financials OnDemand customer) such as their decision making process to move their financials into the cloud, challenges related to this project and expected benefits.
Certainly core financial management software isn't an area where organizations are looking to start from scratch. You will be hard pressed to find a mid to large enterprise company that hasn't already invested heavily over the last 10-20 years in an automated financials system or customized their legacy environment to address their accounting and financial reporting requirements.
Finance has always been about improving results. What could be achieved; however, has changed over time. Consider now the potential impact of velocity and people centricity of cloud computing. It is expanding finance beyond departmental optimization and fueling bottom line growth through collaboration.
Whenever we talk about software, no matter if it is developed for on-premise deployment or for the cloud, we marketeers usually invoke a lot of technical analogies: Control rooms, cockpits, traffic hubs, infrastructures, diagrams on screens, data on mobile phones, etc. The perception seems to be that it's all about technology, its all about data, it's all very clean and sterile. I really don't like that very much.
