Business Challenge story

In evolving its business to capitalize on opportunities in the pay-TV and broadband sector, Pace had outgrown its existing planning solution – making it difficult to deal with growth and diversification.


Pace built a solution that harnesses IBM Analytics to enable an agile business model, analyze revenues and costs, and create accurate rolling forecasts and budgets to guide decision-making.


Month-end forecasting is now much more stable and efficient, and loading actuals is twice as fast. The model structure enables the finance team to include new entities and products quickly and easily.
