 11:00 am EST. Hosted by Longview Solutions, Exelon Corporation, and Deloitte

     "Given political and economic uncertainty along with the increased need
 for transparency and real-time data, there is only one prediction about the
 financial future that anyone feels confident to make," said Matt Townley,
 President and CEO, Longview Solutions. "Those organizations that will succeed
 are those that evoke the most accurate state of the enterprise to plan for,
 react to, and manage change and volatility from a position of knowledge."
     "Enterprise-wide financial truth raises complex challenges for global
 organizations," said Dave Murray, CFO, Longview Solutions. "It might be easy
 for McDonald's to create a hamburger that tastes the same, no matter what
 country it is served in, but it is not easy for a global enterprise to apply
 the same business rules, accounting principles, and financial reporting
 practices to operations in different countries. To paint an accurate financial
 picture, global enterprises have to put in place a system that compiles
 financial data from geographically dispersed divisions using a myriad of
 technological applications, and a variety of accounting practices, business
 rules, and cultural expectations."
     "Swear By Your Numbers - Not At Them" will address the four tenets for
 today's global CPM:
     -   Demand honest, forthright, true financial data
     -   Prepare for the unknown - today's forecasting mantra
     -   Focus people on the bigger picture
     -   Keep consistent processes at the forefront
     Keynote speakers from Longview Solutions, Exelon Corporation, and
 Deloitte Consulting include:
     -   John Power, VP, Client Services, Longview Solutions
     -   Robert Poggensee, Manager IT Projects, Exelon Corporation
     -   Thomas Childs, Senior Manager, Deloitte Consulting
     Longview Solutions, Exelon Corporation, and Deloitte Consulting will
 address the trends, the likely scenarios, and the predictions in CPM on
