Time: 02:00 P.M. ET
Duration: 1 hour
How can performance-management systems and Big Data drive strategic improvements within your organization?
Cloud and data analytics technologies are seemingly ubiquitous, yet finance chiefs today still find their organizations chained to spreadsheets and legacy applications. While these tools might have their place within the organization, new technology offers opportunities to engage a much broader set of users across the company to execute more quickly and more strategically.
Modern performance-management solutions provide your firm with capabilities that go beyond dashboards. They can help senior executives to integrate their managerial methods in one place, allow business users and analysts to build real-time models that leverage vast data sets, and provide real-time navigation for the organization.
During this Webcast, a distinguished panel of experts will explore:
- Why business intelligence and planning solutions are important to your organization;
- How Big Data and analytics can help your organization answer more questions and ask even better ones;
- How to evaluate needs to determine systems and application delivery models that will elevate your company; and
- How to manage adoption of performance-management systems to ensure that your company can realize its full potential.
