Finance professionals can get straightforward advice about evaluating enterprise performance management systems in the webinar, “The Next-Generation Approach to Consolidation and Reporting,” today, February 27, from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m. EST. The webinar presenter is James Clarkson, a consulting partner for BlumShapiro, the largest accounting, tax, and business consulting firm based in New England. The webinar is hosted by Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance Management, Disclosure Management, Financial Governance and Business Intelligence.
“Many companies are now acutely aware that spreadsheets or ‘homegrown’ financial systems are inefficient and can’t adequately support the financial needs of a modern business,” said Clarkson. “However, the move to a new solution should be well thought-out and tightly aligned with the company’s business strategy – not based on vendor marketing or hype.”
During the webinar, Clarkson will discuss the functional requirements companies should carefully evaluate in a selection process, including essential integrations and business rule flexibility. “The checklist a company uses should be based on the company’s vision, not just today’s needs.” Clarkson will also discuss the business advantages of a cloud deployment.
Webinar topics include: Increasing the accuracy of board and regulatory reporting; automating validations, control, and dependencies; improving finance productivity; and reducing dependencies on IT and lowering technology TCO.
