FSN - The Future of Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting

According to the FSN 2017 Global Survey's findings about the future of Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting, a modern and more effective finance function should focus on:

  • Inclusion of non-financial data in decision-making processes
  • Automation and Standardization of BPF across the entire organization
  • Moving planning and analytics to the Cloud


Applied to FP&A function, new technologies are among the main factors that contribute to forecasting excellence and a great help to distinguish more and more the finance function from the accounting function.
