Webinar: FP&A Analytics Transformation

In partnership with:

For quite some time CFOs and the finance community have been talking about transforming the finance function, becoming better business partners and focusing on the value-add, strategic activities.

At the core of that transformation is FP&A, as activities like business planning, business unit strategy, investment allocation and predictive analytics become important to fulfil finance’s new, expanded position within the company.

But to do that, FP&A itself must transform and change from its traditional flux analysis and flash reports to a much more modern and cutting edge department within the company. When starting to embark on your own FP&A Transformation journey, there are a couple of principles you need to keep in mind.

This global webinar will share insights of the International FP&A Board on FP&A Advanced Analytics and FP&A Analytics Maturity Model. Thomas Lundell, Director of FP&A and Business Control (EMEA) at NetApp will share his experience on FP&A Transformation.
