Programme outline

The pandemic marked the end of business as usual, as we knew it. Health and safety changes in the workplace and in interactions with customers, work-from-anywhere and digital customer experiences became ‘must-haves’. Supply chain disruptions redirected our priorities to being resilient and agile; using real-time information and scenario-based planning has helped guide businesses through the uncertainty.

For most businesses these days, change is not an option – it’s an imperative driven by customer expectations and the pace of innovation. To innovate, you need to make the right project investment decisions, improve project forecast accuracy, and control project costs.

John will address these challenges by sharing with you how organisations can be even more agile by them combining financial, operational, and line of business planning, with technologies such as predictive analytics and machine learning using a unified platform to achieve the best from emerging finance technology.

The learning outcomes from John’s presentation include:

  • How to take advantage of emerging finance technology using enterprise performance management.
  • What is SAAS and why it is the true cloud technology.
  • What is connected planning and why it is important.

Who will benefit ?

Those of you in all kinds of roles, at all levels, and in all industries and sectors will benefit from a better understanding of emerging finance technology, as John will talk about connected planning and, how it effects the entire organisation.
