Critical Capabilities Research by Gartner highlights how “Financial Planning software is evolving to support the increased demand for agile and continuous enterprise-wide planning in a rapidly changing business environment. CFOs can use this research to evaluate planning software solutions, with a view to creating a shortlist that matches their needs.”*
“This research differentiates each vendor’s product based on three Use Cases that represent the primary buyer segments of the financial planning solution market. Two of the Use Cases, namely efficiency and improved operational visibility and management, represent the most common business objectives that CFOs want to achieve by using new financial planning software. The final Use Case, complex business environment, represents the typical needs of large global organizations with high process and data complexity.
The ratings for each critical capability are based on evaluations by Gartner analysts, vendor demonstrations, responses to vendor questionnaires, and insights from client inquiry interactions and Gartner® Peer Insights™ platform.”*
