Escalating macro-market challenges, ranging from heightened competition and customer expectations to the consumerization of IT and the changing nature of the workplace, are driving forward-looking corporate executives to reassess how they utilize enterprise applications to achieve their business objectives. These trends are driving a growing number of organizations of all sizes across nearly every industry to consider Cloud-based alternatives and adopt Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions that are easier to deploy and use across a highly dispersed workforce. In this webinar, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director, THINKStrategies and Ron Baden, VP of Services, Host Analytics will examine how these forces are reshaping the way corporate executives and end-users utilize enterprise applications and the transformational business benefits they are gaining from today’s Cloud solutions.
Managing a growing, global organization presents a series of challenges for Finance professionals. Distributed international teams, unique and changing markets, multiple currencies and more make it hard for Finance and Accounting professionals to get past gathering and verifying data to the “dream” of providing real insight to improve the performance of the business. The cloud offers a compelling alternative to automate strategic financial processes and gain deeper insight, but how do you “get there from here?” Robert Bender, CFO of Axioma, a company that develops and markets innovative risk analysis, portfolio rebalancing and performance attribution products for the financial services industry, will describe how they successfully made the leap to cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM). Robert, along with Alex Ortiz, Head of Product Marketing at Host Analytics will explain their evolution from a “General Ledger and Spreadsheets” approach to an integrated, flexible system to manage planning, budgeting, and consolidations that saves them time and money.
