Explore Best Practices in Financial Performance Management with Prostrategy & IBM

Join ProStrategy & IBM on the 12th March at a ‘Best Practices in Financial Performance Management’ Executive Briefing.  Find out how IBM performance management solutions help companies of all sizes – from large-scale enterprises to small and midsize business – transform slow, expensive, disconnected processes into more dynamic, efficient and connected experiences.

IBM Innovation Centre(Building 6, IBM Technology Campus, Damastown, Mulhuddart, Dublin 15) 

Many Finance departments short-change their enterprise performance management activities because they’re wasting time on manual tasks, such as collecting, validating and correcting data, to spend adequate time on the more important task of analysis. They rely on systems — ranging from spreadsheets to ERP solutions — that are disconnected, outdated, static, insecure, completely dependent upon IT, and lacking the performance and data reliability essential for today’s analytics. 

IBM Cognos Performance Management provides a dynamic, collaborative solution to meet all of your enterprise planning and analytics needs. It offers visibility to plans and forecasts, rapid what-if scenario modelling, and profitability analysis. And, when paired with IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, it addresses a breadth of reporting and scorecarding needs.  Capabilities include: 

  • Planning, budgeting and forecasting: Automate budgeting and perform driver-based forecasting, “what-if” scenario modelling and multi-dimensional financial analysis.
  • Profitability modelling and analysis: Evaluate the profitability of products, customers and sales channels with “what-if” modelling and multi-dimensional profitability analysis.
  • Financial close, regulatory and management reporting: Streamline the assembly of management reporting, performance reporting and reporting for regulatory compliance.  Automate the consolidation process for a faster financial close.
  • Performance reporting and scorecarding: Align strategy with execution, communicate goals and monitor your performance against targets.

Join us at our half-day Executive Briefing, where we will share key insights in performance management and best practices in planning & budgeting, consolidation & disclosure management and performance reporting.   You will also have the opportunity to network and share ideas with the Guest Speakers and the other Delegates, and with ProStrategy and IBM personnel.  Click here to view Agenda & to Register.
