A CFO needs to be a visible leader in the business, an excellent communicator, and an influencer.” (Paul Ainsworth – www.toptal.com/) Modern Planning & Analysis transformation offers many benefits to the organizations that embrace it. Top-line benefits include extending planning across business units and LOB’s, connecting real time with ERP, and adopting predictive planning as a standard part of the process. Good news: Powerful technology is available to help planners and the office of the CFO change processes to meet their enterprise-wide goals. Sounds great, just do it! But is technology the best, most effective way to begin? Reality check: Adopting a modern extended planning and analysis process goes beyond merely adopting and adapting new technology. It needs to include – and begin with – a significant process transformation led by Finance. We’ll ask Pras Chatterjee at SAP, Brian Kalish at Kalish Consulting and David Dixon at IBM for their take on Aligning with Planning & Analysis Transformation: Process Changes.
