Why Integrated Planning Has Become Essential
OCTOBER 15th – 1PM ET
Integrated Planning, defined as the ability to manage both financial and operational performance across an organization using a single tool, has been the Holy Grail of the Business Performance Management industry since its inception. Unfortunately, up to this point, that reality only existed in marketing materials. Thanks to advances in the use of SaaS and big data technology, Integrated Planning is coming of age. This technology evolution is well-timed since the use cases Integrated Planning can support have become even more critical today. In this 1-hour webcast you will learn:
- How integrated planning dramatically enhances performance management
