Webinar Abstract

Today’s CFOs and their IT counterparts are increasingly expected to “do more with less,” providing value-added analytics while maintaining or reducing Finance and IT spend.  Analytic improvement is often complicated by the complexity of fragmented financial systems. In response, leading finance departments are increasingly taking a data-driven approach using a common data warehouse and data governance processes to radically simplify their finance architectures.

Our panel of industry experts will discuss the following informative topics:

  • Proven design principles and considerations for a data-driven approach to finance analytics
  • Key organizational and process imperatives to unite all of Finance around a single, integrated data platform
  • Establishing a sustainable finance architecture that adjusts to change
  • We will also present the experiences of companies who have applied a simplified finance architecture to derive business value including:
    • Providing detailed insights into the drivers and detractors of profitability
    • Reducing the time and effort spent on manually intensive data integration and reconciliation tasks, freeing up analyst time to provide value-added analysis
    • Linking of financial results to operational drivers and transactional level revenue and cost detail
