With rapidly changing market dynamics, compounded by COVID-19 recoveries, businesses need to understand how the changing dynamics impact their performance. Recent events have highlighted that having robust scenario planning capabilities is critical. Additionally, new technologies can allow planning and forecasting groups to tap into internal and external data to better understand what drives performance. To capitalize on these capabilities in the current business climate, businesses need to connect the vast amount of operational, finance and market data to provide better insights to business leaders.

Predictive analytics can be used to understand, analyze and predict forecasts of sales, volume and profitability by collecting and relating key drivers for business performance over time as market dynamics evolve. In this webcast, EY will show how a tool like EY Lighthouse can improve forecast accuracy and drive decisions that boost key metrics.

Discussion topics include:

  • Why organizations need to have scenario-planning capabilities that connect to available operational, financial and consumer data
  • How predictive capabilities have helped other companies improve accuracy, efficiency and decision-making to drive improved financial performance
  • What a predictive tool would look like and how it works

The hosts will also walk through a case study in which EY worked with a large client to deliver valuable insights and efficient, accurate forecasts. Finally, the hosts will demonstrate the Lighthouse tool so that attendees can see a real-world example of how it works and how users would interact with it.

Join us for this 60-minute discussion to hear how predictive capabilities can help transform financial planning and analysis (FP&A).
