The concept of integrated business planning — closing gaps in an organization’s various planning functions and aligning operations and strategy with its financial performance — has existed in various forms for decades. What has changed is creation of planning platforms that can handle the fluidity of data to erase silos and enterprise borders where once there were multiple geographies, departments, time zones, languages and currencies. All elements of business are managing the avalanche of information coming to them. Just like connecting disparate people, we also must connect data that resides in various systems, applications and tools.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

If the go-go 1990s, with its fast money and flush credit seeking rapid and steep returns, created the demand for "renaissance" Chief Financial Officers ("CFO"), who could manage (and market) both the strategic and financial operations of the enterprise, the more sobering decade that followed led directly to the creation and subsequent rise of the Chief Procurement Officer ("CPO"), who could reduce costs, build internal relationships, and develop strategic suppliers efficiently and effectively.

Today’s economy is widely characterized by skittishness and uncertainty about the future. The effect that unpredictable external forces can have on the economy can leave many business leaders feeling helpless. This fact was demonstrated in the IBM Global CFO Study, where many CFOs admitted that they lacked the ability to measure and monitor business performance effectively. The same study also found that the companies who invested in their business insight capabilities were better able to anticipate and react to external economic forces. IBM Cognos software can provide businesses with the business insight they need to be prepared, not scared. Cognos software allows businesses to analyze performance, model business strategies and processes, and contribute to a common set of business objectives.

As today’s global marketplace becomes more sophisticated, the number and complexity of mission-critical financial transactions that companies conduct on a day-to-day basis continues to grow exponentially. Even small and mid-sized businesses are plagued by a rapidly increasing volume of financial processes that are highly intricate and multi-faceted. These activities, while important, are administrative in nature and often distract staff from more strategic planning initiatives that directly impact company prosperity and growth. Additionally, as legislative pressures continue to grow, and the rules imposed by Sarbanes Oxley, BASEL II, and other regulations become more stringent, businesses need to find better ways to ensure compliance by effectively logging, tracking, auditing, and reporting their financial data.
