Transform financial processes

IBM Smarter Analytics can help you transform your financial processes to gain more visibility, insight and control over performance throughout your organization.

When surveyed, most CFOs say that an average of 30% of their organization’s performance potential—revenue growth, profitability and shareholder value—is lost due to subpar performance management practices. Financial analysts spend more time collecting and validating numbers than performing valuable analysis. Financial forecasts and budgets are labor intensive and obsolete mere months after they are developed. What you need is a system that automates financial analysis, allowing you to create more up-to-date reports with less effort.
