Digital Finance

Digital Processing, Big Data, Predictive Analytics - What's New about Digitalization? Or is not Finance already digital enough?

Where does digitization begin?

There are currently no optimization projects in companies that are not sold internally with the keyword digitization. Process optimization sounds elaborate, harmonization sounds like resistance and centralization is almost an old hat.

But what is that exactly? And what does digitization have to do with finance?

Digitization is the intention to use digital technology to offer new products, to be able to improve processes and to accelerate communication and networking!

Basically, digitization is nothing new. The replacement of the typewriter by the computer was a digitization of data storage (away from the Leitz folder to the Windows Explorer). If we talk about ERP systems and in particular about SAP, then "digitalization" has been pushed forward for 40 years.
