With the rise of big data, research companies like Aberdeen Group are becoming key contributors, to the universal conversation,providing fact-based research and insights focused on global technology. Having benchmarked the performance of more than 640,000 companies, Aberdeen’s research is relied on by more than 2.5 million readers in over 40 countries.

Recently, Aberdeen announced the launch of its “2013 Financial Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting” survey.  This research, which Aberdeen has been conducting for the past five years, identifies the pressures that organizations are facing as they attempt to devise accurate forecasts. Accuracy in forecasting is absolutely essential in enabling the ability to execute business strategy. With accurate forecasts, business leaders can have confidence when making investments and in making decisions.

The research attempts to identify how Best-in-Class organizations are shrinking the time it takes to create forecasts while driving more accuracy. The report will also allow organizations to benchmark their processes against included peers and Best-in-Class companies.

Topics that will be covered this year include, among others:

  • Financial Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting: Removing the Hurdles
  • Rolling Forecasts Enable Forecast Accuracy and Agile Business Planning
  • How Mobility Benefits Agile Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting
  • Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting in the Cloud
  • Financial Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting for the SME
  • Aligning Short and Long Term Plans, Budgets, and Forecasts
  • Driver-based Budgeting: Creating Budgets Aligned with Reality
  • Planning, Budgeting, and Forecasting for the Distributed Organization

For those that take part in the survey – they will receive, free of charge, access to at least two of these reports.

If you’re company is planning an ERP implementation, upgrade or customization, or most any other Enterprise project, the data found in these reports will be of particular interest to you. Once you’ve done your homework and know how other Best-in-Class companies are dealing with the issues your company is facing, it’s time to find an ERP implementation partner.
