The Future of Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A): How digital FP&A is paving the way for growth

Today’s Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) professionals face a unique set of challenges: increase revenue, minimise costs, and align with the overall business strategy. These goals come to the finance team from CFOs under pressure to provide accurate and timely reporting as well as insightful, intelligent analysis to support executive decision making.

Reporting strategy – Turning data into insight

Accessing data to deliver the insights required for effective decision-making is a fundamental business skill in the digital age. Underpinning this is a corporate reporting strategy that links the information needs of an organisation with the data and the calculations to measure success.

South Africa Becomes a Cloud-Friendly Environment

With 77% of South African businesses currently using cloud services in their IT department, the local market is strongly positioned to usher in a new era of services to meet the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Even though the cloud is gaining significant momentum locally, the next evolution of it (hyper-scale computing) will become even more important.

Making the Move to the Cloud

And as expected, this has resulted in many organisations looking for ways to move their on-premise data environments to the cloud. But apart from the obvious, what has changed to see this influx of interest?

RPA helps address key business challenges

While Robotic Process Automation, or RPA for short, does not give you a big green button that fixes all your problems, it does remove a lot of headaches that hold a business back.

The transformative power of RPA

When done properly, RPA is exceptionally beneficial to both businesses and the employees who work there. When approached and developed as a centre of excellence (COE), RPA becomes deeply embedded in the organisation, and wins hearts and minds with the teams driving adoption and utilisation in current systems and applications – with a forward-thinking view – maximising the benefits of the ever-evolving scope of intelligent automation products.
