The Intelligent Enterprise: Changing the Face of Business

Technology is changing expectations at the highest levels of an organisation. Finance leaders are expected to work closely with IT leaders to master data, use it to draw out insights that improve the bottom line, and make smart funding decisions. On top of that, they need the right information at their fingertips so they can manage the business in near real-time. This is where the shift to an Intelligent Enterprise mindset comes in.

An Intelligent Enterprise includes three key capabilities: visibility, focus, and agility. SAP Concur helps finance, technology teams, and their companies become an Intelligent Enterprise by collecting, normalising, enriching, and connecting previously siloed data so everyone can focus on more strategic work. Finance teams gain more visibility, focus, and agility in controlling spend, while HR, travel managers, and security officers can improve the travel and duty of care experience for employees. Meanwhile, IT leaders help the business drive agility by delivering innovative cloud-based solutions that reduce time, inaccuracy, and costs.

While SAP Concur is laser-focused on managing employee spend, SAP as a whole shares the same dedication to leveraging the data enterprises generate to their benefit. If bringing expense, travel, and invoice management together can deliver greater visibility, focus, agility, and traveller safety to finance and IT leaders, imagine the impact bringing data together across every part of the organisation. How would security, procurement, HR, sales, marketing, or operations look if they were part of the same intelligent suite, using best-in-class user experiences and smarter workflows?

The story isn’t merely about changing the way a couple of departments interface with employees. The Intelligent Enterprise is about connecting all of the organisation’s functions to make sure its actions carry the business forward with better visibility, focus, and the agility to avoid risks and capitalise on opportunities.
