Hull will moderate a panel at this week’s AFP Annual Conference, entitled, “Three Technology Shifts that Are Changing the Role of FP&A.”

The panel will explore how technology is impacting the FP&A function, transforming the roles of finance professionals, and enabling users across organizations to participate in and own corporate performance. The 2016 AFP Annual Conference, themed “Breaking Boundaries,” brings together 6,500 treasury and finance professionals with a goal to help them expand their focus, tear down silos, make connections, and find valuable insights via educational panels, sessions, exhibits, and networking events.

WHAT:               Panel: “Three Technology Shifts that Are Changing the Role of FP&A”

                           The panel will be an open Q&A session that explores three key shifts enabled by technology including:

                                      -Cloud access that enables real-time data and collaboration across multiple geographies and teams using a single system

                                      -Self-service access to data across organizations, enabling less reliance on IT and more frequent access to data and reports.

                                      -The shift toward “pervasive analytics.” which enables analysis during all FP&A phases, including planning, forecasting, and budgeting,

                                        for greater business insights.
