Our inaugural survey in 2017 identified five key disruptors that defined the world of financial close, planning, and reporting. And our 2018 survey showed how over 250 companies were doing in the world of reporting, analysis, planning, and consolidation. We are kicking off 2019 with the updated survey results. We are excited to present three years of data, which allows us to see not only where the EPM/BI space is today, but exactly what has changed in the last year. This webcast will reveal changes in your own platforms as well as trends in technology disruption (hint: Cloud is a big one but not the only revolution we're facing). As you'll see from the data, BI & EPM are changing faster than anyone realized. If you want to find out how your budget cycle time, consolidation & close process, reporting & analysis capabilities, and Cloud adoption stack up against your peers, be sure not to miss this webcast. Your competition will be there.
When your company was in its infancy, there was no need for a consolidation product: once you loaded up all the journal entries for your single location into your General Ledger, it would output your Net Income for the month. Over time, though, your company started opening more locations each one of which provided its own financial information. And then locations started opening up around the world requiring currency conversion. Eventually, your divisions started selling things to each other and suddenly there was the need for intercompany eliminations and adjustments. Next thing you know, you started acquiring and divesting entities around the globe. Now that you’re a large, national or multi-national organization, what are the best practices in financial consolidation and reporting that will enable you to provide up-to-date accounting information to users world-wide? Come to this session and learn how you can easily meet the internal and external demands of your company as you achieve a world-class financial close and managementprocess.
The world of budgeting, planning, and forecasting has changed more in the last three years than in the thirty years prior. No, I don't mean the Cloud: that's just a technology. As companies are pivoting from looking backward to focusing their attentions on the future, new methods of planning are taking off like wildfire. Driver-based budgeting, strategic planning, and rolling forecasts are the minimum you must have as companies stop focusing on precision of data and instead focus on timeliness of data. We now have concepts like scenario modeling, range-based forecasting, graphical planning, Beyond Budgeting, trend-based planning, and more. What methods are the past, what are the majority of companies doing now, and what is at the cutting edge of the planning world? Join us as we walk you through the evolution of budgeting up to the leading practices of today.
Business analytics expert Joe Aultman will show you how you can enter the world of advanced analytics without fancy data scientists or advanced programming. Using only the power of OAC, he will show you how pattern matching, driver-determination, data mining, and even natural language generation are available today . . . and how computer-driven analytics will change your world.
