Webcast Summary

Predictive and prescriptive analytics, in conjunction with business intelligence, are rapidly evolving from concepts for data scientists to essential tools for finance leaders. But many finance teams are not necessarily well-versed in how to use business intelligence to analyze their companies' past performance, nor are they accustomed to using predictive or prescriptive analytics when they prepare their companies' plans and forecasts.

During this Webcast, we will discuss:

  • Why predictive and prescriptive analytics, coupled with business intelligence, are becoming essential in the realm of finance,
  • What types of processes finance teams can improve the most by combining business intelligence with predictive and prescriptive analytics, and
  • How CFOs can use business intelligence to better understand their companies' previous performance while using predictive and prescriptive analytics to better inform forward-looking endeavors, including decision making, throughout their companies.
