FinNext Tech Challenge
The challenge is on - and the winner is up to you!
After reviewing the many excellent FinNext 2019 Tech Challenge case study submissions, we have narrowed it down to four finalists who will present their solutions to you on Monday, March 18th.
Attendees will see four different approaches to the same case study as a way to compare and contrast software tools and approaches. The challengers will help a fictitious FP&A team understand the strengths and opportunities in their sales and cost of goods through data exploration, visualization, analysis and forecasting, leading to recommendations for resource allocations and decision support.
