Data Quality

FP&A Professional: WHAT DATA DO I OWN?

By Irina Steenbeek, ABN AMRO Bank N.V. , Data management consultant, http://datacrossroads.nl

A couple of weeks ago I joined the meeting of the Amsterdam FP&A Board where we discussed the subject of the FP&A analytical transformation. In the course of the meeting the participants mentioned their current main concerns, some of which such as Data ownership, Data quality, and Business Glossary (‘Speaking the same language’). This surprised me. Why? Because these topics are ‘hot’ topics of Data Management (DM) with no common vision on the subject.
As a result I decided to write several articles on these topics for FP&A professionals. The main purpose is to share some knowledge and practical experience and to start a discussion about these subjects.

Top 5 FP&A Trends and Challenges

By Larysa Melnychuk, Managing Director at FP&A Trends group

The past 5 years have seen significant transformations in the FP&A world.

I have been fortunate enough to have travelled extensively and seen these changes.  I observed many restructures, system implementations, analytical insights and innovations, redundancies, frustrations, deadlines… In other words- I saw a lot of changes in the FP&A World first-hand: both successful and painful. I met a lot of FP&A professionals – hard working, exciting, inspiring and often burned out.

At the beginning of this year, I want to share my list of the Top 5 FP&A Trends to watch in 2106.
