The Challenge


Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has been an independent company since October 1, 2014, and is the No. 1 communication company in France and Europe. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is a leading provider of business communications solutions and services, from the desktop to the cloud, with 20 subsidiaries in 42 countries. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise encountered a problem with the reliability of its financial data, as well as difficulties in reporting, multi-currency consolidation and multi-standard accounting.


It chose to carry out its group reporting using Excel on the basis of data issued by the accounting software of the different entities. But with 20 subsidiaries in 42 countries, the need for security, performance and productivity had become urgentin order to simplify consolidation tools and processes, and to speed up the production of reliable reporting.
