Tagetik Webinar Highlights How Stainless Steel Manufacturer Aperam Migrated Global Consolidation and Finance Reporting to the Cloud


Head of finance Guillaume Bazetoux offers insights into considerations and benefits of cloud migration in the upcoming Progressive CFO webinar

Tagetik, a visionary leader in global performance management software solutions, will host the webinar “Is It Time For Progressive CFOs To Trust The Cloud With Critical Financial Information?” the fourth presentation in Tagetik’s popular Progressive CFOTM monthly series on Tuesday, September 29, and Wednesday, September 30. During the webinars, French journalist Sophy Caulier will interview Guillaume Bazetoux, head of finance of Aperam, on the decision to migrate the $5.5 billion (USD) company’s global consolidation and finance reporting to Tagetik’s cloud-based performance management solution.

During each 30-minute, complimentary presentation, Bazetoux and Caulier will frankly discuss the required investments, risk mitigation, lessons learned, and the benefits and cost savings realized by Aperam to date through moving global finance processes to the cloud.

Bazetoux has held a range of senior finance positions in the steel industry for more than 25 years. From 2001 to 2010, he served as vice president of finance and business development at Arcelor Stainless International Asia Pacific and then as CFO of ArcelorMittal Stainless Steel Division. When the Stainless Division was spun off from ArcelorMittal to form Aperam in 2011, Bazetoux became Aperam’s head of finance. Aperam, a global player in stainless, electrical, and specialty steel, has about 9,400 employees and operations in 30 countries. The company has six main production facilities in Brazil, Belgium, and France.

Sophy Caulier has more than 25 years of journalism experience covering topics related to information technology, the economy, industry, and sciences. She has recently written for Le Monde, LeMagIT, L’Informaticien, and ParisTech Review.

“This presentation will offer attendees a rare glimpse into the factors and realities involved in migrating complex, global financial processes to the cloud,” said Dave Kasabian, chief marketing officer for Tagetik. “Many CFOs still regard the cloud as ‘not ready for prime time’ when it comes to finance. Guillaume Bazetoux will share the thinking behind Aperam’s migration and why he believed moving sooner than later was the right decision for his company.”
