Work smarter: Make Better Use of Your Data

Published By: Sage EMEA     Published Date: Jan 29, 2019
Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act.

The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2

Published By: KPMG     Published Date: Sep 17, 2018
The leadership of a new, marquee pharma manufacturer approached KPMG with a paradox: It was certainly marquee, but not new.

During an intensive three-year engagement, KPMG brought the vision of the company’s leaders to life, working towards a target operating model through the disciplined implementation of new systems, processes, training and staffing. The multidisciplinary approach eventually touched the lives of every one of the company’s 21,000 employees, in 170 countries. And as KPMG’s delivered tangible results, something intangible emerged – a new company culture, inde
