Predictive Analytics and Finance: Role Play

July 29, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: Predictive.

Today’s Finance organization charter has been broadened beyond traditional core functional deliverables to include service to most other functions across your organization.

This means the time has come for your Finance team to adopt and learn how to use modern technology, especially predictive analytics. Yes, predictive is no longer “the PhD thing” only intended for specialized SAS programmers working in the basement. No more excuses to avoid it.

Your controller, accountant and treasurer now need to harness predictive, especially if they hope to meet and outperform your CFO’s goals. What challenges does this pose to your company – and how can you solve them?

The experts speak.

Rob Kugel, Ventana Research: “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you’re going, because you might not get there.” (Yogi Berra)
