Episode Description

The buzz: “Unlocking the potential of machine learning for the office of finance remains a hot topic for financial planning and analysis (FP&A) leaders….” (financialexecutives.org) During these tumultuous times, organizations more than ever need better tools and technologies to predict the future. Why? The CFO is under immense pressure to make sense of all internal and external factors, evaluating the impact of lines of credit, working capital, sales targets, expense reduction and pursuing new opportunities. Good news: Many CFOs and FP&A teams are already using Machine Learning and Predictive technologies to get closer to certainty. But can Finance trust these new technologies? How, when fully deployed, do they impact operations and the role of Finance? How is company leadership positioned on these challenges? We’ll ask Brian Kalish at Kalish Consulting, Jeff Hattendorf at Macrospect and Pras Chatterjee at SAP for their insights on Leveraging Predictive Planning to Ease Uncertainty.
