CFO Control Tower

Accessing analytics and reports from a financial system means asking the government staff to manually wrangle the data to generate a clean data for reporting. But this traditional approach can be a problem as data wrangling delays affect the end user’s access to the most recent data. It also limits the ability to mine data that is being generated and causes an over-reliance on the lagging performance measures.

cBeyonData creates its CFO Control Tower solution to solve these issues. It is a scalable toolkit of on-demand solutions that gives financial systems a boost so that the financial data users can meet the compliance requirements for internal and external reporting. And it does so in a fast, reliable and precise manner.
