3 3 Business Drivers for SAS FM The Campaign for McMaster University  Simplify and automate budgeting and consolidation to enable more frequent forecasting  Provide flexibility to adapt to the different operations of the budget units while providing consistent output for Budget Committee  Remove the need for shadow systems and re keying  Provide additional historical data to managers  Support financial ‘what if’s for managers

4 4 The Campaign for McMaster University Benefits Expected for SAS FM (excerpt from 2007 Project Charter)  In addition to addressing the business drivers for this initiative, SAS Financial Management (FM) will achieve:  Drill down capability from summary to detail level  Access to detailed salary data  Reduced effort by eliminating the need for upload files if budgets are initially prepared at the account level  Ability to choose data through “slicers”  Potential for automated budget approval work flow  Easier access to financial information allows more time for analysis  Improved comparability of budget and actual data  Leverages the demonstrated capabilities of the McMaster SAS Business Intelligence (BI) platform for data integration and self-serve reports in a user-friendly, web portal

5 5 Review of items from last session The Campaign for McMaster University  Forms  Adding comments in forms  Remove shading except for yellow entry cells  Labour distribution  Available through add-in to Excel to users outside SAS FM  Reports posted in first few working days of following month  Training  One on one training provided  Citrix  Received no feedback on speed issues
