As the remit of the modern office of the CFO has broadened to encompass both guide and governance responsibilities, this has required spending less time on traditional (often manual) reporting, planning and closing processes, and more time on analysis to uncover and share strategic insights and drive the business forward. Increasing the level of financial intelligence in this way is characteristic of how best in class finance teams operate. Underpinning all of this is the need for data. Financial data is growing in volume and complexity, and is increasingly spread across a range of point solutions, where it isn’t connected and so loses context. While business intelligence tools may address this need for many departments, finance is an exception. Finance is different. Financial data is different. So, finance needs different tools.
