In a business world of  uncertainty, volatility, and risk, business decision making needs to be quick and well informed. Businesses need agility to quickly react to unforeseen events. They must capitalise on opportunities as soon as they present themselves, as competitive advantage is often short-lived.

Business leaders need to look to the future, the past, and inside and outside their business for answers to some very important questions. They need to use both internal and external data sources and establish progressive scenarios with all the foresight that human and machine can deliver in order to assess the risks and rewards of alternative strategies and actions.

Most finance teams are spending way too much time in manual, spreadsheet-based processes – collecting, consolidating and validating data before they can even start to analyse it. As a result, finance professionals tend to be slow in delivering the plans, budgets, forecasts and value-added analysis that management needs. So, progressive companies are investing in capabilities to drive greater speed, agility and foresight to help them anticipate and respond to the unpredictable forces that are driving the economy.
