IBM Finance Forum 2011

| October 5, 2011

In today’s business world heightened uncertainty is now part of the normal course of business. Everything from consumer demand, to commodities prices and exchange rates remain volatile.

How to grow revenue and  profits, and improve return on invested capital while managing risk in uncertain times is on everyone’s mind.

Finance organisations must drive a smarter enterprise through improved analytics and operations efficiency. Surviving and thriving means anticipating and shaping business outcomes, and driving transparency to manage risk and improve decision making.

Now more than ever, Finance organisations need new tools and disciplines to:

  • Align metrics, initiatives, and resources with strategy
    Increase visibility into drivers of revenue, profit and working capital
  • Create timely, reliable forecasts to align operating costs with new levels of business activity
  • Evaluate the performance of products, customers, and channels, and shift resources to support the most profitable areas of the business
  • Sustain cost-effective financial governance in response to increasing regulation and oversight
  • Improve insight and responsiveness to the impact of external and internal risks on profits, balance sheet and cash flow

Now more than ever, this is the time to automate and transform critical financial performance management processes, to thrive in the recovery, out in front and stronger than ever.

IBM’s Finance Forum 2011 features Steve Gazzard, Growth Markets Development Executive, IBM Australia as well as James Garty, Client Technical Professional, Financial Performance Management, IBM Australia.
