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.

IBM® Planning Analytics with Watson accelerates the planning process. FP&A teams can now focus on higher-value work by providing deep insights into business drivers, forecasting multiple scenarios and generating predictive insights to adjust plans and forecasts easily. With IBM Planning Analytics with Watson, planning and analysis can be easily extended across all lines of business to ensure operational activities are aligned with financial plans and corporate strategies and organizational goals.
