Webcast Summary

In today’s business environment, companies need more from finance than financial statements and reports. They need predictive, data-driven insights that shape future business strategy and improve real time decision-making.

This is easier said than done as Finance Departments are facing larger volumes of data than ever before-data generated by customers, products, and suppliers. With analytics, it’s possible to bring finance into the future with predictive modeling, detailed analysis, and insights from Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Through a thought leadership presentation and interactive panel discussion, we’ll look at examples of how analytics are reshaping how finance works. We’ll explore several topic areas, including how Finance can transform the business with AI to:

  • Make investment and operating decisions leveraging data driven analysis from all data ( e.g., finance, HR, Sales)
  • Forecast future financial outcomes based on historical, trend and market data
  • Improve time to delivery and accuracy of financial reports and models
