Volatility, uncertainty and risk have been increasing for years —and they’re not going away any time soon. But most Finance teams still spend an inordinate amount of time in manual, spreadsheet-based processes—collecting, consolidating and validating data. Because of that, these teams are often unable to deliver needed plans, budgets, forecasts, reports and value-added analysis in a timely fashion. In response, leading CFOs and finance organizations are seeking faster, flexible solutions to help them deliver deeper insights and stronger foresight to steer business performance more effectively.
All too often, however, they believe they have to compromise between the ease of use and fast deployment of a cloud solution and the powerful, flexible, analytic capabilities traditionally available only in on-premises solutions. But now they don’t have to compromise. Now they can have it all with IBM® Planning Analytics.
