FSN and Board - Business Intelligence for CFOs

What should you expect from your analytic tools?


Traditional approaches to Business Intelligence (BI), data visualisation and analytics are failing to deliver what CFOs need to fulfil their wider role as a dependable business partners and advisors to the rest of the board.  

FSN’s most recent research identifies that two thirds of CFOs consider that they are inadequately supported in decision-making, predicting performance and in responding quickly to market change.  Yet, at the same time, there has never been a greater choice of standalone BI and data visualisation tools? 

So, the obvious question is why are business intelligence tools failing to deliver on their promise of driving insight and enabling businesses to rapidly understand and master change?


In this 30-minute webinar, Gary Simon, Chief Executive of FSN will interview Tim Lindemann, an expert in BI in the Office of the CFO and Head of Practice for Business Intelligence at Board International. Together they will explore the challenges that the finance function face in delivering advanced data analytics and how a modern unified approach to business intelligence can make all the difference.
