Linkedin Live broadcast

The growing competitive business landscape has forced organizations to rely on increasingly sophisticated technology for tasks such as budgeting, planning, forecasting, and report generation. And now, COVID-19 has turned up the heat and escalated technology upgrades from nice-to-haves to must-haves; your company’s survival may depend on it.

Today’s business planning and analysis (BP&A) teams are turning to innovative technologies featuring predictive analytics, utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning to anticipate changing business drivers, modify organizational objectives, and provide greater insights. The technology must also possess data visualization capabilities that enable teams to move away from spreadsheets and present financial data in dynamic and user-friendly ways to have maximum impact on nonfinancial professionals.

In this discussion we explore the broad suite of technologies and platforms available to BP&A teams and how to select the ones that will help keep your organization flexible and agile enough to cope with whatever contingencies that may come along. KPMG executives share real-world examples of the types of technology packages BP&A teams have adopted and key considerations for your organization to keep in mind.
