The Path to Modern, Continuous Planning

Unlocking Business Agility with ITG and Workday Adaptive Planning

Thursday, April 18, 2024 | 10:30 AM – 2:00 PM

Overview of the Event

In today’s dynamic market, companies encounter critical challenges in financial planning. The reliance on outdated historical data and static assumptions leads to inaccurate forecasting, resulting in missed opportunities, overspending, and reactive decision-making. Additionally, siloed financial planning, fostered by disparate systems across departments, impedes cohesive planning efforts and limits cross-functional collaboration. The constraint of limited resources for scenario planning creates labor-intensive processes, hindering swift adaptability. Furthermore, instinct-driven decisions, divorced from data-driven insights, contribute to inaccurate decision-making, inhibiting smarter planning. The slow deployment of new planning environments exacerbates these challenges, delaying the organisation’s responsiveness to market changes.

Our solution with Workday Adaptive Planning transforms financial planning, providing users with a highly interactive interface for self-service reporting. This accelerates adoption by fostering engagement across finance teams, operations, and business units, creating a dynamic planning environment. The solution introduces flexible modeling and easy scenario planning, allowing continuous evolution of models and plans. The intuitive drag-and-drop interface ensures swift implementation, enabling organisations to achieve value sooner. Leveraging Workday Adaptive Planning’s Elastic Hypercube Technology, companies can perform unlimited what-if analyses, assessing opportunities and impacts without compromising data intensity.
