Forcasting tools moved to broad management

With today’s regulatory and competitive pressures, financial measurement and performance management has never been more critical. Most current forecasting tools don’t provide the enterprise-wide data management and modeling capabilities to sustain continuous analysis of forecast-versus-actual business results.

“Now more than ever before, organizations have the best access to cutting-edge planning and forecasting tools to streamline finance processes,” says Jerry Kaczmarowski, managing director of Technology Solutions at Slalom Consulting. “Techniques of the past are being pushed aside or enhanced by more advanced methods.

” New technology was unveiled at Slalom’s exclusive seminar titled “Driving Business Performance” in coordination with Microsoft and Two Degrees. The seminar, which took place in Seattle, Wash., was aimed at financial executives to discuss Microsoft’s new Performance Point technologies. It also provided more than 100 local executives with predictions on the impact of this technology on critical areas like budgeting and financial planning.

Conference presenters discussed how to move to advanced planning and forecasting techniques across the enterprise, while letting the finance team continue to use tried-and-true technologies like Excel. The end result gives companies much better ability to forecast monthly results, drill down into performance problems, and communicate information throughout the enterprise.
