Companies are placing ever more exacting demands on the quality, availability, transparency, granularity and currentness of information. The conventional supply chains are obsolete – today’s dashboards have to be able to display aggregations and metrics flexibly, customized, dynamically and – ideally – in real time. While companies want to be able to drill down to the details of the data (“look-through approach”) and identify their source, they are unable to do at present.
Fast-close financial statements and connections to investor portals for the timely delivery of outputs require data flows to be checked, processed and released accurately and quickly. Conventional tools are not economically efficient for testing such highly complex volumes of data on a recurring basis and identifying errors on a timely basis.
