Board International positioned as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions & Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions
The two Magic Quadrants examine vendors whose solutions support finance professionals in their analysis, reporting, planning and closing activities.
Leading analyst and advisory firm Gartner has named decision-making platform provider Board International as a Visionary in both its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions & Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis Solutions* states that “Financial planning and analysis solutions support the office of finance's efforts to manage financial planning and budgeting as well as financial modeling and performance reporting. Application leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to identify vendors that are a good match for their business needs.” Board International was positioned in the Visionaries quadrant within this Magic Quadrant.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Financial Close Solutions** states that “Financial close solutions help the office of finance manage the financial close and apply appropriate controls throughout the accounting cycle. Application leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to identify vendors that are a good match for their financial close needs.” Board International was evaluated based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute; the company was positioned in the Visionaries quadrant and improved its overall position compared to the previous report.
“Organizations are increasingly seeing the benefits of moving from disjointed point solutions to a more centralized approach,” said Giovanni Grossi, CEO of Board International. “Through unified decision-making platforms, management teams are able to empower their employees to analyze, simulate and plan in one place, using the most up-to-date information to ensure informed decisions are made. This is, and always has been, Board’s vision, and I feel that this is reflected in our positioning within the quadrants.”
