Webcast Summary

As companies plan for 2020, they are seeking greater visibility than ever into future performance.

To fulfill this aim, a finance leader needs to establish a strong business case for investing in resources and tools that bolster a finance team's forward-looking analytical capabilities.

During this Webcast, we will highlight the latest technological advances, most notably in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and predictive analytics, that streamline financial planning and analysis (FP&A) while extending the value of FP&A beyond finance throughout all areas of a company.

We will discuss:

  • What finance leaders need to know about technological advances that optimize FP&A teams' analytical capabilities,
  • How finance leaders can apply technological advances to achieve greater visibility into future performance while identifying opportunities to improve it, and
  • What finance leaders can do to harmonize financial and nonfinancial indicators of performance to better inform their companies' decisions.
