Innovation Enterprise's 2014 Financial Forecasting & Planning Innovation Summit
Peri Pierone, CEO of Axiom EPM, will present at this summit taking place February 19-20, 2014 in San Diego. “This year’s session speakers have extensive expertise in a variety of relevant topics and issues facing the financial planning and analysis function, from budgeting to strategic influence,” said Emma Flanagan, International Events Director, of Innovation Enterprise. “Peri brings more than twenty five years of performance management experience and insight to the conference and will provide attendees with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain a competitive analytical edge.”
Innovation Enterprise is an independent business-to-business multi-channel media brand focused on the information needs of senior big data, strategy, advanced analytics, digital, finance, operations, publishing and decision support executives. The organization’s Financial Forecasting & Planning Summit brings together the largest gathering of finance executives leading financial planning and analysis initiatives, offering unique insight into the innovations that are driving success in their companies.
“Planning has become an increasingly complex function and is no longer a simple budgeting and financial forecasting exercise,” said Pierone. “My goal is to help session attendees understand the benefits of a more agile strategic planning model that incorporates financial and operational analytics, which will enable efficient ‘what-if’ modeling, scenario analysis and initiative-based modeling and tracking.”
