Ventana Research announced today its latest Dynamic Insights market research program for Finance Analytics. Analytics are at the core of everything that finance departments do — planning and budgeting, performance assessments, financial management and compliance — and so are key to the department’s performance. Our benchmark research has consistently found that departments fall short in how they perform finance analytics because of issues related to training, process, data and software.
Ventana Research’s Dynamic Insights cover a range of important business topics, collecting data about how companies perform core processes. Uniquely, Dynamic Insights provide the individual participants with direct feedback on responses to a concise set of questions they answer, and a benchmarked score based on those answers. Based on their responses research participants receive a written assessment of his or her company’s efforts as well as research- and experience-based advice on potential next steps to improve outcomes.
A key focus of our Office of Finance research is enabling departments to enhance their effectiveness by providing their company more useful analysis and therefore situational awareness to help executives and managers to improve performance. This survey focuses on how analytics are used, the obstacles finance departments face in delivering timely and useful information and the tools they use for performing analyses.
“An essential ingredient of the digital transformation of the finance organization is improving how departments perform and deliver analytics,” notes Robert Kugel, SVP & Research Director at Ventana Research. “Our research shows that departments are adequate in handling basic analytics but have difficulty in their use of more advanced analytics that are increasingly important for decision making and improving corporate performance. Dynamic Insights provide individuals with fast and useful feedback on how their company is performing and recommendations on what to do next.”
