THURSDAY 5TH AUGUST 2021 | 12.00PM – 13.00 (AEST)

CFO LIVE > WEBCAST | ELIGIBLE FOR 1 CPD HOUR

In this exclusive CFO Lunchtime Live WebCast, we will focus on a term very well known to CFOs: Financial Planning & Analysis, or FP&A.

How has it changed in the Digital Age? Is it possible to expand FP&A outside of finance? How are advancements in technology supporting the wider, more strategic role of finance? And finally, how ‘xP&A’ could become the future of finance.

Gartner has recently identified the emerging trend of Extended Planning and Analysis, coining the term “xP&A,” and views its capability as becoming an important market component of the future. According to the new research, “by 2024, Gartner expects FP&A to evolve to encompass xP&A, a strategy where the “x” denotes breaking down traditional silos between enterprise financial and operational planning processes in order to deliver new levels of transformative business value. The “x” represents consistent and continuous planning that extends beyond the finance domain into other areas of enterprise planning and analysis”.

THIS INTERACTIVE LIVE CFO WEBCAST WILL BRING TOGETHER A PANEL OF EXPERTS TO DISCUSS:

What’s changing in the world of FP&A?

If your industry isn’t already disrupted by digital transformation, it will be. But what you need is better insight, not bigger data. Traditional EPM & BI is expensive, slow to set up, and needs IT specialists and external consultants – lots of them.

Organizations can streamline any data-driven process – from strategic planning to complex predictive analytical models or operational performance monitoring. At the same time, Jedox is designed to be easy, with industry-leading fast implementation times.

In a fast-changing world where data is generated at every turn, it is crucial that CFOs understand how to derive the most knowledge (value) they can from their data to ensure long-term success. This can be as simple as a monthly sales report to know how much product your business sold in the previous month, or more complex, such as a 12-month forecast to guide allocations in the budget for the next fiscal year.
