Consolidations for Compliance: CFO Insight Sessions
Leveraging Enabling Technology for Close, Consolidation and Reporting
Challenge: Is there a better alternative for supporting my close, consolidation and reporting activities?
Overview: Most organizations use spreadsheets in support of these activities. Excel often fills multiple roles including: data collection, reconciliation, validation, manipulation, consolidation, report creation and distribution, etc. This results in excessive manual effort, extended cycle times, data integrity issues, and unnecessary process steps. Excel does not provide the enterprise capabilities that are required in support of a well-designed close and consolidation process. In today’s environment, best-of-breed consolidation applications provide extensive modeling capabilities and related functionality that support leading practices. A robust information architecture supports a single version of the truth and provides information structured along the key dimensionality needed for effective decision-making. Dedicated reporting and analysis applications provide a consistent analytic view of the enterprise and supports sophisticated analysis and scenario planning.
