With the rapid development of the global economy and the rapid advancement of technology, we have witnessed a trend of dual development: on the one hand, more and more enterprises are rushing to IPO, seeking broader capital markets and development opportunities; On the other hand, digital transformation, as an engine of technological innovation in the new era, has brought unprecedented efficiency and opportunities to enterprises. However, when we talk about the digital transformation of enterprise IPOs, what is the most important question?
For most people, the most important issues that our company’s IPO needs to address before going to the market may be market positioning, business expansion, talent attraction, and so on. However, these are all surface level requirements. In the process of enterprise digital transformation, a more fundamental and critical IPO issue is gradually emerging.
SAP, as a leading global enterprise software provider, pointed out in its latest “Digital White Paper on Growth Enterprise IPOs” that for the digital transformation of IPOs, the first thing to be addressed is financial authenticity and compliance issues. This is not only to ensure investor confidence, but also to avoid potential legal risks. If this issue is not properly addressed, the consequences may be catastrophic, including a significant decline in stock value and even forced delisting.
As a pillar of digital transformation for enterprises on the path of IPO, SAP’s intelligent cloud based digital system can effectively help enterprises cope with IPO challenges, meet the needs of corporate governance, financial compliance, and risk control, and then help enterprises reduce costs and increase efficiency, improve operational efficiency, enhance corporate image, attract and retain talents, accelerate the successful IPO process, and increase valuation. We take SAP S/4HANA CIoud as an example, which provides a comprehensive digital transformation solution for enterprises, focusing on the three pillars of transformation. This includes:
Pillar 1: Digital financial management, promoting the integration of business and finance. SAP S/4HANA CIoud helps enterprises achieve true integration of research and development, design, manufacturing, procurement, project management, sales, and service to finance, improving operational efficiency;
Pillar 2: Digitalization compliance, creating an endogenous driving force for the sustainable development of listed companies. Listed companies need to establish a digital compliance system, and SAP intelligent cloud ERP has embedded digital compliance solutions that can run in different IT environments, reduce costs and risks, and improve business control capabilities; Let’s take the tax management support provided by SAP S/4HANA CIoud in global compliance support as an example to help achieve corporate overseas financial and tax compliance.
Pillar 3: Digital human resources management, unleashing employee potential, and optimizing employee experience. Digital technology has brought new organizational management methods, while also changing talent management methods. Therefore, listed companies need to create a digital talent management platform to support the digital talent decision-making system, thereby enhancing the support of talent management for strategy.
