2014 Summit Overview

There has never been a more exciting time to be in Finance. Leading edge companies are using performance management to transform information into organizational insight for more accurate planning and effective decision making. The Finance department has been elevated from a back office function to that of a strategic adviser to the entire organization -- shifting time away from tedious data aggregation tasks to deliver value-added analysis, identify trends and use analytics to advise business decisions that impact profitability.
