In this session, Hoffman will lend 25 years of experience as a user and vendor of decision support and BI technologies to reveal the hard cost of unprofitable financial decisions inside global companies.

Attendees will learn about Financial Data Integration solutions that deliver on the promises of Business Intelligence systems, making it easier for managers and analysts to monitor profitability, adjust plans and capitalize on market opportunities. Armed with facts about the pitfalls of antiquated software infrastructures that block access to unified finance and operational data, you'll discover how a new generation of Silicon Valley startups is helping corporations solve this problem.
