Financial Applications in the Cloud:
Building Your Business Case

Webcast Available on Demand
Duration: 1 hour

Sponsored by Intacct

Thinking about moving your financial applications to the cloud?

Chances are that you have asked yourself the same crucial question that you apply to every strategic decision for your business: What's the return on investment (ROI)? A solid business case that's rooted in a clear ROI and demonstrable payback not only unlocks budget dollars; it also provides a roadmap for successful deployment and maximum value -- especially if you are thinking ahead to 2015. 

This Webcast, featuring Rebecca Wettemann, Vice President of Nucleus Research, and Vijay Ramakrishnan, Senior Director of Cloud Solutions with Intacct, offers the opportunity to hear expert perspectives on how to achieve ROI from cloud-based financial software.

We invite you to join our Webcast, where you will:

  • Learn the three steps to building an effective business case for moving financial applications to the cloud;

  • Hear how to assess direct and indirect benefits of making this change;

  • See real-life case studies from Nucleus' clients;

  • Learn how to calculate key financial metrics associated with transitioning financial applications to the cloud, including the ROI and payback period; and

  • Find out how to prioritize your deployment based on five key ROI factors to maximize returns and minimize risk.
