"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 March 20, 2003 at 11:00 am EST.
