Are you interested in improving your ability to analyze and understand the deep drivers of your company's profitability? Do decision makers at your company have the insight they need to make sound, well-informed choices?

Every company forecasts and reports on revenue, costs, expenses, and asset and investment performance. But many finance teams are eager for deeper insight into profitability not just at the corporate or business-unit level, but also at the customer, channel, and product level.

From this Webcast, you will learn how groundbreaking applications of Big Data are making it possible for finance teams to:

  • Analyze and report on multiple dimensions and drivers of profitability;

  • Allocate costs more effectively and transparently;

  • Direct resources to the most profitable activities more effectively; and

  • Use scenario modeling and what-if analysis to make better, more informed business decisions.
