FP&A is evolving
As we enter a new era of finance transformation with organizations looking to integrate, manage and analyze their enterprise data, the FP&A job description will take on a strategic, digital-first approach. Organizations will need to adopt strategies that are focused on process automation, integration, agility, transparency and data-driven decisions that expand across the entire enterprise. Creating plans that provide an enterprise-wide impact is the new normal. It’s no longer just about financial planning and analysis (FP&A); it also includes the expansion into continuous, integrated planning.

“The key in any business is to be able to react quickly. You don’t want to wait one day, two days, or even several hours to make a decision. With Planning Analytics [with Watson] you can go in, make a change in the parameters or make a code change so easily, and users are able to see the end results.”
